“Honey you do me wrong but still I’m crazy bout you.” Marvin Gaye was one of the greatest songwriters of his generation and his lyrics still carry through today thanks to Beshken. The California based producer lays down some chilled out house vibes on Marvin Gaye’s “Ain’t That Peculiar” in this remix update to an old favorite.

There are a ton of great artists coming out of Washington, DC, and there’s one in particular that we’d like to highlight today. Coming off her official remix for Portland pop artist Pink Feathers, Eau Claire (aka Rachel Wong) this week shares a deep edit of Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is.”

“The original is such an irresistible track I was surprised to find that there weren’t many remixes so I thought it would be perfect song to rework into an uptempo dance track with that Eau Claire touch.”

Man, something must be in the air as of late with the exceptional list of Marvin Gaye edits floating around the blogosphere (peep some others here and here). This latest one comes from UK producer, Leftside Wobble and will be the inaugural release for his new imprint, X-Cursions. Taking the classic groove of Marvin’s ‘I Want You’ and looping it to perfection, adding a tasty Moog bass, silky lead lines and dub effects, we’ve a real winner on our hands.

Marvin Gaye was one of the most influential singers of his time, helping develop the Motown genre and later influencing the development of R&B. Jimmy Q has taken Marvin’s iconic track “Let’s Get It On” and added his signature slow jam swag to Marvin Gaye’s original. Jimmy Q builds the instrumental around Gaye’s chopped up vocals, slowly adding smooth trap trills and a sensual heavy beat.

Mercury down in Switzerland contacted us with their latest edit where they take on the legendary Marvin Gaye for a perfect edit that subtly adds an extended beat for a light and heartwarming track that maintains the soul of the original. We will be playing this repeatedly during the upcoming holidays.
