'Think Of U'

After an amazing and successful tour of Europe and the UK LNTG is back in the studio.
This track 'Think Of U' was one that the Tuff Guy completed just before departing for the tour and anyone who attended his shows was likely to have heard it in his sets.
But although it was very well received 'live' there was something that he just wanted to tweak on his return before it was ready for the world to hear.

LNTG quote: "People often ask me what my favourite dance tracks of all time are, and it's always a difficult question to answer, because most of the time it depends on how I am feeling on that particular day. 
More often than not, 'I Want Your Love' by CHIC is one that comes to mind. It was one of the very first 12" singles I bought (I was 14 years old).
Now...I know this track has been remixed, remodelled, remade, and re-edited a hundred times. There are versions that I absolutely love, especially the Dimitri From Paris version from a couple of years ago, and of course the Moodymann version from the mid 90's.
I initially wanted to just do Part 1, but every time I got to a certain point I just wanted to hear THAT whole riff! So, I ended up doing this."
We hope you enjoy his version and wait for him to drop this at his Australian Summer shows including Stereosonic and Falls Festival appearances.

'Think Of U' will be part of the latest Tuff Cut #04 vinyl release scheduled for November 2013.

Stare & Whisper LNTG Interpretation

To many of you OS the name Rene Geyer may not mean anything. Although she did have some exposure internationally Rene really made a name for herself here in Australia exploring a soulful and bluesy sound in a time when she was surrounded by pure pop stars and music.
She has described herself in the past as "a white Hungarian Jew from Australia sounding like a 65-year old black man from Alabama."
Her live performances and band where always of the highest quality and her releases received critical acclaim and were endorsed by fans 'in the know.'
She moved to LA in mid 1976 and recorded her first US album 'Moving Along' and Rene chose Motown's Frank Wilson as the producer.
It featured the track 'Stares and Whispers' which was an instant favourite of the Tuff Guy and he fell in love with it at the tender age of thirteen.
This is one that LNTG just had to do.

Tu estas en mi Systema

The latest LNTG re-work 'Systema' is originally by American duo 'The System' from their 1983 album 'Sweat.'
This is an 80's Tuff Guy favourite and the not often heard Spanish translated version of 'You are in my System.'
The funk is so palpable you just have to turn it up!

Family LNTG re-work

In 1971 Sly and the Family Stone had a number #1 with their track 'Family Affair' and it was later to be ranked #138 in Rolling Stone magazines 500 greatest songs of all time.
LNTG like many of us have always loved this tune and he is on the record as saying he wanted to make a more dance-floor version to play 'live' in his sets.
'Family' is the Tuff Guys latest re-work and we're lovin having Sly back on the Hi-Fi.

I Can Feel It

After taking a few years break from Genesis in 1981 Phil Collins made his landmark solo album 'Face Value' which included the hit 'In The Air Tonight.' It was an international smash and played on radio around the world and even to this day.
A few others have had a go at this track and now it's the Tuff Guy's turn.
With 'I Can Feel It' LNTG takes it head on and well, you can judge the results.

It's sometimes hard to predict how LNTG's edits will be received by you but it's always an exciting time whenever something new arrives. When you look at the stats for his 'Bless the Rains' Epic Journey  it has become his most played work to date.
With over 43,500 plays in 25 days it has been warmly embraced and the safari continues.

ITM Honour Roll

LNTG has been building a strong reputation and interest from overseas but it could be said that the Australian press has been a little slow in catching up. That's all starting to change for the better as the OZ EDM online bible 'In The Mix' has added him as part of their Honour Roll series. Some of the international names already included are Richie Hawtin, DJ Harvey and Jeff Mills as well as other Aus names like Simon Caldwell, Dave Pham and Mike Callander.
The Tuff Guy is not one to search out the spotlight so this is a good insight into the man behind the muscle.
Expect more press soon as the requests for interviews seems to be rapidly increasing and we are encouraging him to talk even more about how he was to become...Late Nite Tuff Guy.

★ LNTG's New Website

Like expectant parents we have been waiting patiently, not quite 9 months, but it's finally arrived, Late Nite Tuff Guy's new website.
We would like you all to be God Parents because it's been designed with you in mind.
To celebrate the launch of www.lntg.co he has produced a new DJ mix that is available for DL on the site. Like all LNTG mixes this was recorded 'Live.' 
From time to time the site will also feature new and unavailable tracks from the Tuff Guy that you will be able to download so we hope you come back and visit.
"You gotta come over and see the baby." [Link below]


Bless the Rains

When a song has nearly 13 million hits on Youtube you can be guaranteed it's a bit of a monster.
We're going on safari with LNTG as he takes on this Toto classic from their 1982 album 'Toto IV.'
The initial idea for the song came from David Paich and the late great drummer for the band and co-song writer Jeff Porcaro explains the inspiration behind the original"... a white boy is trying to write a song on Africa, but since he's never been there, he can only tell what he's seen on TV or remembers in the past."
This one has been on LNTG's list for a while but given that Aiidemi Popusi from Croatia suggested it as part of our Late Nite Tuff Guy 'Requests' series it's only fair that we give him props for his choice, thanks Aiidemi.

Pray Like Aretha

In 1985 British band Scritti Politti released their most successful album 'Cupid and Psyche.' It had several hit singles and broke them into the US market.
LNTG had taken on arguably their biggest tune with his latest edit 'Pray Like Aretha Franklin.'
For those who remember the already slick and sophisticated pop lush-ness of the original it's great to hear it back again with the Tuff Guy treatment.
Time to brush up on some of those 80's dance moves.

Nitetrain

All aboard as LNTG gets on the Nite Train, a step away from his usual excursions but a journey worth taking.
This time Steve Winwood gets the Tuff Guy treatment on this track from his 1980 album 'Arc of a Diver' which incidentally Steve played every instrument on.
Winwood is an amazing talent in his own right but he also played with Hendrix back in the day, not bad thing to have on your CV.

Late Nite Tuff Guy has gone back to Motown for his latest edit interpretation 'Don't Wanna Let U Go.'
This one is a personal LNTG all time favourite J-5 tune and he has said that it bought out a lot of emotions during its production.

Nobody

This is the latest edit from LNTG of Rufus and the beautiful and amazingly talented Chaka Khan entitled 'Nobody.'
Probably a track that is in most DJ's top 5 dance-floor killers, it started with LNTG wanting to create a mixable version and ended up like this.
Once again he was concerned about taking on such a classic and wanted to do it justice or it might have never seen the light of day.
We're so glad it's here.
