An exclusive, custom made DJ re-edit here by Pablo and Shoey, who are feeling in a generous mood after their ‘Rejigs Vol 2′ EP made it into Juno’s Disco Top 10 this week. We’ve got heaps of these in our stash of secret weapons too, so expect more exclusive and very, very free re-edits from their vaults over the coming weeks and months…..
This jazzy soul/funk number is from Marlena’s wonderful 1968 LP ‘Spice Of Life’, which also features stone cold classics in the form of ‘California Soul’ and ‘Woman Of The Ghetto’. The album was co-arranged by Charles Stepney, who also made beautiful music with Minnie Riperon, The Emotions and Earth, Wind and Fire.
‘Liberation…’ is a mere two minutes in length though, so we gave it a little touch up to help those feckless DJ’s with their mixing, nothing too drastic… As ever this is about extending songs that are already great so they work better on the dancefloor, nothing more, nothing less… And for all you producers out there, we recommend you listen to this, then the live version of ‘Woman In The Ghetto’, and finally to Blueboy’s ‘Remember Me’ for a sweet little lesson in how to flip a sample… Non producers can do it as well if they like too!!
Ging ging a ging ging ging ging a ging!
