Daytoner – Best Of The Shedits Vol 3
There’s a number of EP series out there that I look forward to hearing the next volume of and Daytoner’s ‘Best Of The Shedits‘ EP series is one I look forward to as much as any. It’s titled ‘Shedits’ simply because the of the location where Daytoner creates his magic, a small wooden shed in Cornwall and with gorgeous surroundings like that all around and the silky production skills he possess’, the music he makes is always of the highest calibre.
For volume 3, Daytoner has rewound all the way back to 1967 and 1969 for the sources of his 4 remixes and what choices he has made! The EP kicks off with a Funky Breaks mashup of ‘Dead End Street‘ by, Lou Rawis and ‘Apache‘ by, Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band, and the result is one that’ll have Funk n Soul fans leaping off their seats in absolute joy at what their hearing. The second track is a remix of Symarip’s rude boy anthem – ‘Skinhead Moonstomp‘. This broken beat Ska influenced remix has extra keys, beats, bass and horns and hey, who doesn’t like an extra dose of horns!? One things for sure, it’s an absolute party starter!
Track 3 on the EP is a remix of Chuck Jackson’s ‘Can You Feel It, Babe?‘ and this is most definitely one of the most feel good tracks I’ve ever heard, and I’ve listened to a lot of feel good music. This soulful Breaks remix is fixed up with new mellotron, synths, horns, strings, beats and percussion, with the tempo quickened so that DJ’s can use it to maximum effect on the dance floor. The final track off the EP is another slab of gold as he again delivers a soulful Breaks spin, this time on The Emotions ‘I Like It‘ and what a ray of sunshine it is. You’ll be rescued from the darkest of times with this track by your side.
You can look at volumes 1,2 and 3 of ‘The Best Of Shedits’ as the perfect hat-trick. One’s a glorious curling shot into the top corner, the other is a bullet header that pings of the forehead and into the back of the net and to finish off, a crisp, thunderous 30 yard volley that whistles in between the sticks. Just like the goals being ones you want to watch again and again, Daytoner’s music is the kind you want to listen to again and again.
