Hotter Than August

It feels like summer has finally arrived here in the bay. I must admit it hasn't been a good showing so far weather-wise for my first summer in San Francisco. However the past week the weather has been wonderful. Hopefully we can ride this warm wave right into October. Anyways, I thought I would change it up a bit and post a recently released re-edit by Todd Terje of Stevie Wonder's "All I Do" from his 1980 album Hotter Than July. I actually heard the original version of this song the other day when I was out walking my dog. Someone had it blasting from their apartment and I was inspired to share the feel-good track on a day that is as warm and beautiful as today. Enjoy the heat!

This song was a favorite of my now wife and mine, 20 years ago, the couple times we went to Club Zanzibar in Newark, New Jersey.

Tony "Hump me! Hump me!" Humphries on the turntables!!

I still think he's one of the best (if not THE BEST) mixers I've ever heard!

Sounds like Todd Terje extended the beginning of this song. I have the "Hotter Than July" album, and there's not much room in the beginning of that version of "All I Do" to mix into.

I suspect that Tony Humphries used to play a reel-to-reel edit version of this song with a longer intro.

Nice work from Todd Terje, as usual!!
