Need a few hours of relaxed, fun, afro-cuban and funk based house DJ mix music to help you get through the end of your weekend, or perhaps to give next weekend the fun party vibe it needs? Martin Solveig (French DJ/Producer, produced Madonna's MDNA album, but don't let that scare you off) has you covered. 2006's Defected In The House
is a three disk album
available on Grooveshark, full of bongo and conga beats, uplifting lyrics, and just enough fun and groove to keep your booty shaking or your day at work flying by.

Ollie Teeba from The Herbaliser:
"A few years back I was given, as a Christmas gift, the 'Collectors Edition box set of Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds'. As well as tons of interesting facts about the creation of the original recordings it had several CD's of alternate takes, remixes etc. On one CD, I excitedly discovered that they had included all of Richard Burton's dialogue parts, without music. Having already created and performed an alternate live DJ score to silent film 'The Lost World' from 1927, this seemed like a great opportunity to do a similar project with one of my favourite childhood stories."
"This is by no means intended as an improvement to Mr Wayne's recording but a tribute to H.G Wells, Jeff Wayne, Richard Burton, Orson Welles and of course Solid Steel."
