Having recently wrapped up their North American tour, Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy who make up the celebrated Los Angeles Electronic duo DJ Dodger Stadium (DJDS), are back with a new free edit. Following up from their previous giveaway of the Timmy Thomas track "Why Can't We Live Together (DJDS Edit)," the head honchos of the Body High collective have decided to give away a fresh edit of the Prince track "Nothing Compares 2 U." You can read their reasoning behind the edit that Jerome posted on his Facebook a few days back.
Last year, Sam and I made an edit of Prince’s live version of “Nothing Compares 2 U” for our Resident Advisor mix and for our live shows. I was originally unaware that Prince had anything to do with the song, but Sam taught me its interesting history. Prince wrote and composed the song for one of his side projects, The Family. The song was released on their first and only album in 1985. Sinead O’Connor, then, made the song ubiquitous with her cover in 1990. Our edit was of a live version that Prince performed in 1993. We decided to go back to the edit and create a finished version that we wanted to share with you for the holidays as a token of our appreciation. We hope you enjoy and happy holidays.
