Daily Tunez

Daily Tunez has a new home!

I apologize for abandoning this blog over 2 years ago, but I’m back for real now. Instead of maintaining 2 different music sites, I’ve decided to revive this blog by moving it over to the Fresh Tunes category on monfresh.com. I will be posting there regularly from now on, but not daily.

If you want to be notified for every new track, you should subscribe to the RSS feed. If you’d rather receive a weekly digest via email, you should sign up for my mailing list.

Thanks for your support!

Jill Scott - Golden (Sir Piers ‘Curious’ Main Mix) [White]

Of all the remixes of this song, this is my favorite. Only a few white label copies were pressed in 2004, but you can still grab yours on Discogs.

Sofia Rei Koutsovitis - El Llo [World Village]

I had the pleasure of hearing this talented Argentine singer live in Barcelona on Sunday night in a mesmerizing outdoor venue in Plaça del Rei. This concert was part of the Grec 09 Festival.

Sofia will be performing in NY on July 26 at the Blue Note with Eric Kuminski, and on August 5 at SummerStage with Pedrito Martinez.

This track is from her latest album Sube Azul, which doesn’t seem to be available online yet. However, her debut album Ojalá is available on iTunes.

Below is the artwork for Sube Azul and a photo I took at the concert in Barcelona.

los amigos invisibles - commercial

No es el color de tu pelo
puedes cambiarlo otra vez
No es el perfurme perfecto
que va dejando tu piel
lo que me tiene atrapado
ya no lo puedo entender
es el sabor de tus labios
que me hacen enloquecer

Ya los bese una ves
y ahora me cuesta creer
que son los mismos labios que besaba ayer

Ya los volvi a besar
y ahora me cuesta pensar
que es la misma boca
que deje pasar

Dulce...
que dulce esta tu boca
pero dulce
mas nada me provoca
solo es dulce
que dulce esta tu boca
pero dulce
mas nada me provoca

No se que pasa conmigo (no lo se)
pensando en ti una vez mas
(una vez mas)
siempre t eh pertenecido
(solo a ti)
no lo eh kerido aceptar
lo que me tiene atrapado
y ahora lo puedo entender
es el sabor de tus labios
que me hacen enloquecer

Ya los bese una ves
y ahora me cuesta creer
que son los mismos labios que besaba ayer

Ya los volvi a besar
y ahora me cuesta pensar
que es la misma boca
que deje pasar

Dulce...
que dulce esta tu boca
pero dulce
mas nada me provoca
solo es dulce
que dulce esta tu boca
pero dulce
mas nada me provoca

Dulce...
que dulce esta tu boca
pero dulce
mas nada me provoca
solo es dulce
que dulce que dulce
mas dulce que tus senos

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - Summertime (Yam Who? Remix) [Sony]

Remember this tune? What do you think of this remix? I don’t think this was ever released officially. I have it on a bootleg 12” that lists “Children Of Swing” as the label, and COTS12001 is the catalog number.
