Bad edits are one of the most frustrating aspects when it comes to virtual digging. For me those of originally good songs that just add a gawky beat for the ‘sake’ of better danceability are particularly annoying. Eugene Tambourine’s wonderful reworks really cut that crap.
I was lucky enough to hear a short DJ set and have a little chat with him a while ago in Berlin and he’s a remarkably charming, open minded guy.
Moreover, the selection of songs he touches is outstanding and then they sound quite ‘natural’ while at the same time coming to the gist of the matter. Check his version of Ultra Naté’s ‘It’s over now’ for instance. Didn’t really like that song before but he just turned it into a true dance floor pearl!
Hope you dig!
