DJ Platurn said he had done this edit of Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)” awhile back but chose not to upload it for whatever reason. It seemed it was the perfect time so he now presents it for everyone to stream and listen and perhaps download it for the party in your life. It’s free to download but definitely considering using the “Name Your Price” option to show some support.
Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge fan of The Police, and have been for a long time. I was lucky to have seen them during the Synchronicity tour in Honolulu at the Aloha Stadium in February 1984 at what would be their last American show before they split up. The group would return later on but I was able to see them at their most successful period and as they were falling apart from one another.
While “Message In A Bottle” was the first Police song I heard and enjoyed, the power of “Roxanne” was strong and it not only became one of the band’s staples in live shows, but Eddie Murphy used it for a joke during one of the scenes in his first film, 48 Hours.
While they had released a few other singles before “Roxanne”, it was the song that caught the attention of many people, including American audiences. 37 years after its release, DJ Platurn handles the song with a new edit, ready for you to check out, with or without a red light on.
DJ Platurn is back to his pesky editing ways and this time he goes back to 1974 for a dip into the Ohio Players catalog to try out the hit song “Fire”. This one is a scorcher and c’mon, it’s a Platurn edit, you know how he does it.
It had been somewhat quiet from DJ Platurn and his remixes and edits that I have been enjoying in the last few years. After a brief break from his audio manipulations, Platurn is back and this time he goes back to 1975 for a twist up of War’s hit song, “Low Rider.” We’ve heard the song in films and TV shows, perhaps on a television commercial but it’s safe to say you haven’t heard this new version. Take a little trip with Platurn and find out whether he takes it a little lower or just a little higher.
If you’ve been wondering what DJ Platurn was about to create next in his bag of clever remixes and edits, here’s the new. He takes on “Walk On By”, Isaac Hayes’ cover of the Dionne Warwick classic and turns it into not only an edit, but an “extended edit”. You can obtain the song by clicking to the Soundcloud page directly, perfect for listening, including in radio shows or DJ sets. You’ll make it work, trust me. The edit includes the “Name Your Price” option so show support and give what you feel the mix deserves.
DJ Platurn is at it again with another fine edit, this time taking a Meters song from their debut album in 1969 and making it his own. The song is “Cardova”, you may want to download it and use it for your own DJ sets.
DJ Platurn is back with a new remix for all to hear, and this one goes back to 1977 and disco, or at least one of the best pop songs of the era. If you love “Stayin’ Alive”, you are going to really enjoy what he does with it here. If you want to take it with you, head to Bandcamp as well.
James Brown is easily one of the most sampled artists of all time and one of his songs is examined, sliced, chops, and flipped into a new mix, courtesy of DJ Platurn. It’s for the song “Say It Loud (I’m Black And I’m Proud)” so have a listen, then you’re able to download it until the unknown powers-of-the-unknown take it down. If you’re a rapper, you may want to use this during live performances, mix it in with one of your tracks by mixing it as part of the third verse, then cut out.
One of Oakland’s best DJ’s honors a much sampled jazz rock song from area code 206 (that’s Seattle) in one of his new edits. DJ Platurn takes on Ballinjack’s “Found A Child”, made famous by producers Matt Dike (one half of the Dust Brothers) and Michael Ross as one of the core samples in Young MC’s “Bust A Move”. Hear how Platurn flips things around in his new edit.
The DJ in this case is Oakland’s DJ Platurn, the man responsible for a lot of good… no, not just good, but great remixes and edits of some classic songs, and this one is no exception, as he gets down with The Meters who backed up Dr. John for this song that became one of his biggest pop hits in his career. Now here it nicely edited for your rearranged need.
