Bluford Duck – Shoulder to Cry On

Bluford Duck (the nickname of a famous old west outlaw), a little known deep house producer based out of the UK, burst on to the scene with their track “Shoulder to Cry On.” First premiered in The Magician’s Magic Tape 36 and featured on Jeudi Record’s compilation of producers to watch, the track is a 2013 re-imagining of Brandy’s 1994 R&B classic “I Wanna Be Down.” The track borrows heavily from the original, laying a pitched up version of the original vocals over an updated groove and baseline. While others have tried similar updates with this track, only Bluford Duck is able to nail it. This has been a staple in deep sets of late and this duo is one to keep an eye on. Their original material sounds promising and 2014 is sure to be a busy year for them!

Sunday Slowdown #1: The Peacemaker Project – Ich Lass’ Dich Nicht Zuruck (Jody Wisternoff Remix)

Sunday Slowdown showcases a track from the archives that empowers us to take a minute to breath, listen, and just exist. When I first heard the original mix of this track, I was not impressed. However, upon hearing Jody Wisternoff’s remix of The Peacemaker Project’s “Ich Lass’ Dich Nicht Zuruck” mixed beautifully with the rest of Anjunadeep 05, the vocals and percussion immediately caught my attention. This song just makes you want to groove, to shuffle back and forth. Picture yourself on a Sunday afternoon, driving along a quiet road. This track forces you to block everything out for a few minutes of our busy lives. The twangs of the sax complete the emotional track.
