Give Me Your Love

A mixable edit of Sylvia Striplin's mega classic, Give Me Your Love (produced by Roy Ayers!!!). DJs must have really loved this record in the 80s. Every time I dig through an old DJ's collection of 12"s, there is always a copy and it's always totally whipped. Same with Strafe's Set It Off - two stone cold party anthems that are always played to death.

Cultura Racional

Need a late pass for Tee Cardaci's blissed out Tim Maia dub. Tee also fills us in on the backstory of the recording:
Cultura Racional (Rational Culture) appeared on brazilian legend Tim Maia's extremely rare album, Tim Maia Racional Vol. 1. The story goes that he and his band were holed up ina house in Rio de Janeiro, supposedly working on their next studio album for his label but, in reality, were spending more time ingesting large quantities of mind altering substances. One evening, while under the influence, Tim got ahold of the book, "Universe in Disenchantment", which led the singer to convert overnight to this 'cult of energy'. He then insisted his band do the same and began reworking the album to preach the message of 'rational culture' described in the book and including cover art diagraming paths of energy. His record label was unimpressed, viewing the new album as unmarketable. Angered, Tim severed ties with his label and created his own label, Seroma, to release the project. A short time after (perhaps after the drugs had worn off), Tim became disenchanted with the cult and embarrassed at his album created to glorify the cult. All remaining copies of the LP were pulled and destroyed, making this album the rarity it is and cementing it's spot in counterculture history. It is now recognized for being the funky masterpiece that it is, with Rolling Stone magazine putting it at number 17 in the top 100 brazilian albums of all time (if you can find it!).
This edit let's the stoney groove roll along, while dubbing out Tim's repeated vocal mantra, 'We are gonna rule the world, don't you know, don't you know. Gonna put it together', while removing Tim's more heavy handed preaching.

Ain't No Big Thing

Superprince did a guest mix for DJ Shmeejay's Ain't No Big Thing radio show on Check out the mix on Soundcloud, or grab a file of just the Superprince mix here. Also, here's a little back story on Superprince...
Every one thousand years in the K. Hauenstein star system, on the planet Rogersnelson, a wormhole opens.  It leads directly from the planet's capital city of Bohannon to it's galactic sister city, Philadelphia on the planet Earth.  In the K. Hauenstein star system, music is a valuable currency and many wars are fought over it. It is said "He who controls the music, controls the universe". Almost two decades ago, the disco freighter HMS Sylvester was successfully destroyed by a marauding squadron of Imperial RIAA fighters.  Before the freighter exploded, two families loaded their only sons into escape pods and launched them into space. The pods drifted for days and the fate of the two young men was looking grim. On the fifth day, however, their luck shifted dramatically. The god of cosmic energy, Moroder, noticed their plight and set them forth on solar winds through the closing wormhole. After crashing in Philadelphia, the children emerged from their pods, looked at each other and said, "We are @superprince1."  The collection of songs on this page are the efforts of Superprince to communicate in a new world, whilst paying homage to their alien homeland. Please enjoy the music, and if something seems off, cut them some slack - they are fucking alien orphans from the K. Hauenstein starsystem.
