World Famous DJ Team Supreme (Tony Johns slight edit)
I'm fairly certain Sedivine the Mastermind and Just Allah the Superstar couldn't have predicted the impact this record would have on Hip-Hop and RnB for generations to come when they first gave it a spin on their Newark-based radio show on 105.9 WHBI in 1979. You'll instantly recognize the sample here, used in Mariah Carey's timeless classic 'Honey.' Eddie Griffin's part in the music video is memorable. Feel good vibes all around - Harlem world we won't stop!

Kon's edits are legendary - if you don't know, you better ask somebody!! We're planning to do an in-depth post on his expansive catalog soon, but today we're featuring this funk-soul heater originally by Metaphor, touched up by Kon. There's a lovely, edgy conga break about 1:30 in, followed by light, airy, summer guitar. The bassline is thick, and energy consistent. Ain't Nothin' like Summertime!

Get Down Edits - Summer Madness
This isn't the first time we've featured Ireland's Get Down Edits on the blog, and it certainly won't be the last. They take this Kool and the Gang classic, and throw some boom-bap under it for easy mixing. It gives this track a different vibe right from the jump. It's a laid back head-nodder - you can never have too many versions/edits of Summertime in your crate! Free Download via Soundcloud.
