What A Fool Believes

Snow day today! I was such a pleasant surprise this morning to find out there is no work thanks to Bloomberg. But enough about him and back to music. The latest trend from DJs is to take Lite Rock/Lite F.M. tracks from the late 70's and early 80's and give them a refreshing feel. The best example I could find is from the Mad Mats' Blue Eyed Soul EP. They have released two outstanding examples of this new trend. One is What A Fool Believes by the Doobie Brothers featured here and the other is This Is It by Kenny Loggins. Both are brilliant tracks that have an amazing new feel. The added percussion grooves and slightly house feel gives them that dance floor push without loosing the songs integrity. I can see the beginning of a gold mine here that I am sure will be explored by many DJ's here! I have already heard many samples of such trend by hearing the response of such songs during Danny Krivits' 718 Sessions. These songs are being revised and revamped and it's not a guilty pleasure to love them anymore. Enjoy
