Square Records - Onur Engin Edits - THIS IS NOT THE NEW REBTUZ!!

Square Records Onur Engin edits

We have no idea where these records have come from or why the letter attached kept insisting they are not the new Rebtuz series. From what we can gather Onur Engin is a Turkish producer and these are a few treats he has worked on to fit into his infamous dj sets.

Press Release :
Four tracks reworked especially for the dancefloor and released on vinyl only. Not available digitally, as Square Records is all about the black stuff. Square Records are committed to releasing great music for DJs and music fans who still enjoy the rush of actually buying records. Nothing for your iPod here! If that last statement makes us sound bitter, we can assure you we're not...just check the music on here for proof that we still feel warm on the inside! First up on Square is Onur Engin, a DJ and producer from Turkey who sure knows how to rock a dancefloor. These tracks have already been tried and tested by Onur and the Square Records crew, and the 100's of emails clogging our inbox are testament to the Worldwide struggle to get these tracks to the masses.

A1 William DeVaughn - Be Thankful For What You've Got (Onur Engin Edit) (10:01)
A bona fide classic this is an extended reworking of the lesser known Disco version – tweaked and prodded into a tune that works on peak time dancefloors just as well as an end of the night anthem. Brothers & Sisters!

A2. Diana Ross - Brown Baby (Onur Engin Edit) (3:39)
First released in 1973, the original has been sampled by Hip Hop stalwarts Immortal Technique and Nas. This is a beautiful and blissed out version.

AA1. Gene Harris - As (Onur Engin Edit) (9:07)
The Stevie Wonder classic reworked for the dancefloor from the original Blue Note release. Essential DJ track.

B2. João Donato - O Morro Não Tem Vez (Onur Engin Edit) (4:14)
In the '60s the great Brazilian pianist was being rejected by all nightclubs as a performer. Ahead of his time, his modern swinging piano was too strong rhythmically and excessively difficult to follow by other musicians, and customers complained about it as not danceable. He ran out of gigs and used to ask all nightclubs' owners to play for free, just to be available for anyone interested. Even then, he was only allowed to play after 4am, when most customers were gone. This rework is made straight for the 2010 dancefloor. Big.
