When I woke up this morning. I couldn't help but to notice the way my timeline was blowing up about the passing of singer David Bowie. The guy was a legend as far as the pop scene went and still has one of the biggest pop records ever with Let's Dance. The song was later sampled by Puff Daddy and Mase for Been around the world. He died just two days into his 69th birthday surrounded by his family and loved ones.

I instantly went on Facebook and saw this video clip from DJ Skratch Bastid and it was one of the most exciting tributes to David Bowie that any dj should be able to respect and love. Check out the below clip and reminisce on one of the funkiest tracks of the 80's produced by Chic member Nile Rodgers.

RIP David Bowie.Late night in the studio... took a break from working on a new mix to check my feeds... only to find it flooded with news that the legendary David Bowie has passed. Lots can be said & written to eulogize prolific artists like him, but I think the most appropriate way for a DJ to celebrate my favourite artists is by sharing their music. So how about a little routine? 1983's "Let's Dance" was produced by David himself & Nile Rodgers (from Chic, recently featured on Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'), and was Bowie's biggest song to date, 20 years into his career. The guy never stopped creating -- he stayed recording and collaborating with artists like Arcade Fire & LCD Soundsystem over the last decade, and even put out an album two days ago, before his untimely passing. If that's not motivation as an artist, I don't know what is. So this one's for you, David -- a tribute, just having some fun with a dancefloor smash that has always been a favourite to double copies of while keeping people moving. Don't mind the smilin', I can't help it. Rest easy...

David Bowie- "Let's Dance":

Now check out the classic joint from Puff Daddy and Mase that had all of the radios and clubs rocking back in the day. Regardless of where you were when this song or the original came out. You couldn't help but to get up and start to jam. David is a legend in the game and the irony is that there was an album that was just released from the legend called Blackstar that was dedicated to the fans.
