“Heaven of My Life” (Tony Johns & Dynamicron edit) – Change

It’s my almost my anniversary with my boo so I’m a little more predisposed to songs about apples of one’s eye, angels of one’s heart, loves that one needs and, most importantly, heavens of one’s life. I’ve previously espoused of my love of Tony Johns‘ disco edits, a couple months ago I posted an edit he did of Cybotron’s Clear that was particularly awesome. Recently he teamed up with Spain’s purveyor of killer rock edits, Dynamicron, for this tasty tasty edit of Change’s italo boogie joyride “Heaven of My Life.” I’ve heard quite a few Change edits in my day but never this particular selection. In its original form the track is a great late night driving music that you can kinda boogie to, but the duo has added a goldilocks amount of oomph, bringing it up to the caliber of a lovely floor filler. Go find many more goodies on Tony Johns‘ and Dynamicron‘s respective pages on Soundcloud, they believe in free love or at least plenty of free downloads, so god bless ’em.

Clear (Tony Johns edit) – Cybotron

Englishman Tony Johns has been putting out some killer edits lately, and this is one of my faves. He takes Cybotron’s Detroit anthem “Clear,” and throws some rumbling latin percussion under it. It might sound kind of crazy but it sounds like a perfect match for mid 80s early electronic music. Can’t wait to unleash this one on the floor.

While we’re at it, here’s another Tony Johns edit, this one of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “Rage Hard,” a fun little late 80s romp hovering somewhere between new wave and early house. Johns has a lot of fun looping pieces of the track in silly ways, it’s a lot of nerdy fun.
