SunceBeat 2 - Souldynamic Movie Diary

a quick grab of some plays from the last one

1. Jackson 5 - It's Great To Be Here

Played by Martin Lodge.

Martin's afternoon set on the terrace was a blessing; his soulful selections nursing many disco casualties back to health.

2. Earth, Wind & Fire - Beijo (Brazilian Rhyme)

Played by Ronnie Herel.

Every one of Ronnie's sets caused a buzz throughout the festival site - he teased a quiet main stage to capacity before Quentin Harris' headline slot, he rocked the final boat with Kev Beadle in a back-to-back special, and he closed the festival beautifully in Barbarella's with a timely selection of well chosen classics. Ronnie is a pleasure to be around, his humbleness and warmth lighting up every gem in his box.

3. Earth, Wind & Fire - Runnin'

Played by Ashley Beedle.

In a moment of dance floor magic, Ashley diverted Barbarella's from its dominant house beat with Danny Krivit's subtle retouch of this Earth, Wind & Fire classic.

4. Red Astaire - Follow Me

Played by Gavin Kendrick.

I dropped this Latin rework of 'Left & Right' a couple of times over the weekend, and it was always met with a glowing response. (I'm listening to a news snippet on Ronnie Herel's blog as I type, and apparently D'Angelo's third album is finally on the way!)

5. Blundetto feat. Shawn Lee - Nautilus

Played by Dean 'Sunshine' Smith.

One of my favourite sets of the week was spinning back-to-back with Garden resident Dean 'Sunshine' Smith on Thursday evening. From a handful of movers digging classic hip hop from Guru, Jaylib and Jeru, to a capacity dance floor embracing all the jazz-funk, house and garage we dropped, it was a gig I'll never forget. In the aftermath of the week's hedonism, Dean brought us back to reality with his well-honed sun-kissed terrace set. These comedown sessions were so well received last year, Dean was invited to join the SuncÃÆ’©Beat residents for our second adventure, and his tunes this year were as deep and dependable as ever.
