Pushim – Like A Sunshine My Memory (EOL Mix)

Most Wanted! Pushim – Like A Sunshine My Memory (EOL Mix by Louie Vega) (Ki/oon Records)

“Like a sunshine, my memory…” I guess that’s pretty much what I could say mine, speaking of which you may see a bunch of fragments on these shores. With, once again, big ups and eternal Love to those who fed my heart and soul. This with their music, attention and signs of love. Meanwhile if ever diggin’ deeper here, you’ll then probably realize as to how Louie Vega counts among those whom we happened to give the biggest amount of mentions to. And how could it be different at the end? With the man standing at the epicenter of the Dance culture…

“Like a sunshine, my memory…” is full of souvenirs of those countless meetings we’ve had from a year to another back in the day. With each of them getting me to learn something new from him. Therefore, you might also understand as to how I’ve ended up havin’ so many pieces of music he’s worked on in my collection. With some of them being quite rare as a matter of fact. Such as this sought after rework of ‘Like A Sunshine, My Memory’ which he did for Japanese artist Pushim Pak back in 2004.

In the spirit of these masterpieces he crafted for Janet Jackson (‘Go Deep’ along with Kenny Dope). But also Cirque Du Soleil (‘Emballa’), Vega just comes with the right thing, at the right time. Thus bringin’ whatever he touches to the next level. When not the Holy Grail as on the aforementioned. With ‘Like A Sunshine, My Memory’ makin’ no exception. As enlightened with stellar arrangements and the soothing part of the flute courtesy of Nathan Haines appearing as the icing on the cake…

What’s the value of your vinyl record?

Overview
The son of a Jazz saxophonist and nephew of the late Hector Lavoe, Louie Vega started spinning at the early age of 13 in block parties at his local Bronx neighborhood of New York. From then his reputation would never cease growing. Establishing himself as one of the most DJ’s in the world nowadays.
He would follow the same path productionwise. Together with Kenny Dope Gonzalez as Masters At Work and also Kenlou. Meanwhile giving birth to the most (the last?!?) ambitious concept in the history of Dance Music under the form of the memorable Nuyorican Soul album . An effort featuring guests such as Roy Ayers, Jocelyn Brown, George Benson and the late Tito Puente among others.

On his own, he would put together the Elements Of Life collective. This with Josh Milan, Luisito Quintero, Raul Midón and Anané to name a few.

Each of his remixes has an undeniable identity. With many of them reaching the upper heights such as this rework – one of his best ever and a heavily sought after at the time – which he did back in 2004 for Japanese female artist Pushim. Itself featuring Nathan Haines on flute…
