Australian born and recent LA transplant DJ Anna Lunoe is a staple at many of the big festivals down under and in the States. Featuring appearances at Big Day Out, Splendour in the Grass, Parklife, Field Day, and Falls Festival, Anna steadily moves up the bill each year.  Wordlife is a project of Sydney based DJs/Kato and Adam Bozzetto, producing “forward thinking club music”. The two forces have combined to transform the a cappella 80s hit, “Tom’s Diner” into a house dance track.

American singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote “Tom’s Diner” in 1981 and it appeared as the first track on her Solitude Standing album in 1987.  Three years later it was used as the basis for a popular remix by the British group DNA. In 1991, Vega released Tom’s Album featuring the DNA version as well as cover versions by such artists as After One, Canasta, and Bingo Hand Job (R.E.M. and Billy Bragg). Download the house mix free below.
