It's Summer... Time To Jump Back In!

First of all, no it isn't me doing the graceful bellyflop but I wouldn't turn down the opportunity to do so today. Yes, I'm back and this time I'm doing something I haven't done before here. I'm posting for your summer listening pleasure an 8 song mix on a relatively modern update of a classic riddim and get this, they're pretty much all love songs. What you are about to hear is the "Mr. Fix It" riddim from 2000 produced by Beres Hammond on the Harmony House label and I have been diggin' it big time!

I remember hearing the Half Pint and Beres tune on this track and loving it a few years ago. But when "Just Be Good" popped up again on a random shuffle on the Ipod I decided to give it the credit it was due by compiling some more tunes and doing a complete one riddim mix. I don't know why, but anytime I hear these songs they immediately make the warm breeze, singing birds and sunshine feel just a little sweeter I hope they'll do the same for you.

Here's the playlist...

1. Ambelique - New Sheriff In Town
2. Beres Hammond - They Gonna Talk
3. Peter Hunnigale - Believe In Love
4. Anthony B - Good Life
5. Tony Curtis - Lord I Thank You
6. Half Pint - Just Be Good
7. Don Campbell - I Wish I Could
8. Ambelique - Survivor

Happy Summer
