SotD - Old Skool Dayz, Tom Glide ft Chidi


Neil Gardner is a bit of an audio guru, being the brains behind an award winning spoken word production company. But sometimes he likes to retreat from the digital studio to listen to some music analogue style, on vinyl. This time he Glides back to his Old Skool Dayz...

Format: 12″ Black vinyl

Side A: classic early 80s summer soul rnb smooth choon packed to the rafters with soulful elegance and beautiful vocals. Mellow and relaxed with Neneh Cherry styling and chilled out beats. Stunningly gorgeous vocals from Chidi.


Side B: two fantastic remixes by Ashley Needle and cohorts. Remix 1 brings a clean crisp feel to the track with more 70s inspired vibes and pads and a disco undertone. Remix 2 is stripped back to the bare and oh so beautiful vocals with instruments and samples sipping in and out. Perfect for headphones. A Brand New Heavies flavour throughout.

Finyl Thought: hot in the city, hot in the city tonight…where’s my Walkman and rollerskates?
