Your Sunshine

The latest release from Coastline Recordings, “Your Sunshine,” finds label head Kenny Knight delivering two mixes that are ready for dancing in the sun this spring and summer. Demarkus Lewis adds his signature touch of deep and soulful bounce with Demarkus’s Rain or Shine Mix.

The release kicks off with Kenny’s main mix, showcasing the soulful vocal sample over a solid mix of drums and Moog bass. Kenny, an aficionado of analog synths, often reaches for his Moog Voyager to deliver the bass, as is the case here. Whether it’s sunrise or sunset, this track could become a “go-to” for those moments in a DJ’s set.

The second version, Kenny’s Sax in the Shade Mix, reworks the main mix and makes a sexy sax hook the star. This is a production approach Kenny loves to take as a sax player himself and a lover of horns in house music. The vocals receive a more delayed dub treatment, sharing the stage with the saxophone as they work as one to thread the melody in and out of the mix.

The third mix, Demarkus Lewis’s remix, shows why his production talents are in such demand. Demarkus creates a glowing mix that’s completely his own and flips the vocal, as if by magic, to follow his vision. This piece of ear candy keeps one wanting to hit replay. From the bouncing groove to the sparkling pads and keys, his signature spice is all over this one. Summer may not last forever, but this mix will make you feel like it could.
