It's almost Summer, which means it's about time to get out in the sun! Here's a little funky house goodness for your pool-side partaking. Lots of fun, happy stuff here. I tried to keep it a little more on-point this year. No Gaga this time, kiddies, although she does make a brief cameo appearance (and don't give me any of that Alejandro static).

I did have my hand in putting together one of these songs. A little while back, Edson Pride released a somewhat Circuity mix of Groove Is in the Heart. I immediately purchased it, only to find out it was barely even a dub. Not really any vocals to speak of. Now, there was no way I could let that happen to such as fun and happy song as Groove, so I took a recent remake and parts of the original and threw them all together. I think the results are quite entertaining in my "groovy mashup".

My favorite new song on this mix would have to be Alexis Jordan - Happiness. I really like the song and its lyrics. Very uplifting. I was waiting -- in anxious anticipation -- for Dave Audé's remix. I heard a sample and knew it was going to turn out really well. When I finally obtained the full version, it exceeded my expectations. Such a nicely done, pretty production by him and the bridge gives me goose bumps every time (I did throw in a little more "sparkle", for good measure). It seems he is just at the top of his game these days. This song, to say the least, makes me very, well, "happy".

I always like to end my Sun mixes with a little bit of old-school disco. Anyone that knows me well, knows me and my relationship with "the Cake". By "the Cake", I mean Donna Summer's remake of the song MacArthur Park. A few months back, I had ran across a rare, different disco version of it by a different group (at least, that I had never heard and I'm a disco fanboy). I was all planning on using it to end this mix. That is, until it was a suggested by a friend that if I was going to end the mix with "the Cake", why not use the Queen's version? Well, I decided since I haven't ever used it before, I would finally bring it out to play. So Donna makes her appearance in the full 18-minute suite. Hopefully one day she'll find that recipe... only "heaven knows." Hahaha. :-)
