Rose Royce – Love Don’t Live Here Anymore (Valentin Huedo Remake)

rose royce

Rose Royce first released this track in 1978 on an album entitled Rose Royce III: Strikes Again!, which actually doesn’t make much sense as a title. But, it was the late ’70s and everyone was probably coming down/off of something, so we’ll let it slide. The true nature of the song is actually quite depressing,  a mournful melody of what once was. It’s relatively surprising that the singer of the lamenting tune was made famous by funkadelic tracks like Carwash and Wishing on a Star.

When you lived inside of me
There was nothin’ I could conceive
That you wouldn’t do for me
Trouble seemed so far away
You changed that right away, baby
 
You abandoned me
Love don’t live here anymore
Just a vacancy
Love don’t live here anymore.”

Many an artist have rendered their versions of Royce‘s hit. It’s one of those timeless tracks that seems to emerge every few years. Madonna released her own sentimental rendition in 1984, Robyn and Bounty Killer added a reggae track in 1997 and even producer Meek Mill sampled the track in 2010. Fact: Love Don’t Live Here Anymore is persistently ubiquitous. Don’t deny it. Valentin Huedo, a budding DJ out of Ibiza, Spain, puts his own house flavor on the Royce classic. The young DJ has been making a name for himself in one of the most synthed-out, electronica hotspots in the world.

Crystal Castles – Courtship Date

Crystal Castles

Fashion week starts today here in the city and traditionally that’s meant me at events with like 1000:1 girl to guy ratio, this time around it’s not looking any different, thank you Mercedes-Benz. As usual I’m N.O.R.E. on Friday’s so I’ll leave you with a few Crystal Castles songs that came back into my life randomly. Courtship Date, as you will easily recognize by the intro, was sampled by Timbaland for 50 Cent’s Ayo Technology, fresh. Oh yeah, if your wondering why there’s a beat up Madonna picture up there, that’s because Crystal Castles illegally used that version of Trevor Brown’s image to promote their CD’s and sell T-Shirts. After a mini war with Brown the band finally settled and now own all the rights to the image – bad ass.
