The Cover Up is a series of mixes by Spin Doctor dedicated to cover versions blending tunes you know and love re-imagined and replayed.
Having received rave reviews from from DJs (Rich Medina, Mick Boogie, Mr Thing & ?usestlove) and blogs (Okayplayer, Main Squeeze & Urban Vault) these mixes offer something for everyone as the 6500+ plays and downloads of Vol.1 show.
After a brief 11 month hiatus (to have a kid and run many of London’s best parties) Spin Doctor returns with volume 3 of The Cover up and this time it a Reggae special just in time for Notting Hill Carnival featuring covers of the likes of Curtis Mayfield, ODB, Al Green, Dianan Ross & The Beatles by a host of Reggae greats including Alton Ellis, Dennis Brown, Marcia Griffiths & Ken Booth.
“I have been collecting covers for a minute now and decided to start putting together this series of The Cover Up mixes. I am always looking for versions that offer something different to the original or, that on that all too rare occasion, improve on the original.
This first mix has a bunch of my recent favourites along with some well worn classics. I’m planning an all Hip-Hop mix, a Motown special, a Beatles selection, a Reggae mix and more like this with just a bunch of my fave covers so keep your eyes and ears peeled for more.” Spin Doctor
