An essential 12" that will rock you on and on...
Fresh for 2011, the good folks at Los Angeles based Footlong Development and New York City based Push the Fader team up to bring you a classic and timeless piece of SOUL vinyl, from Brooklyn's own, DJ Center.
Packed with enough warmth to keep you through the Winter and enough bump to have dance floors sweating through the Summer, "In a Song" features the lovely vocals of Middle Child, Ohio finest soulstress, whom Center chose to light up the standout track from his critically acclaimed debut, Everything in Time. The tune has been championed by Tastemaker DJs like Garth Trinidad (KCRW), sites and publications like Okayplayer.com and Time Out Magazine and has received regular rotation on the cable network TV Channel, Music Choice.
With an anthem-like chorus and thumping groove, "In a Song" is packed with equal part bump and boogie and equal part warmth and soul - a natural choice record for DJs, dance floors and lovers of modern Soul music with an instant vintage feel.
DJ Spinna, a man needing no introduction, delivers his "Back from the Future Remix" of the original - a late night remix with classic Spinna signature. Banging drums, warm rhodes, heavy synth stabs and the classic spacey sounds from the Beyond Real architect we have loved for years.
The "Back from the Future Remix" comes to us almost in a time-capsule form, with the same essence of any of his classic late '90s productions - the Compositions series, De La Soul, Das EFX and Mobb Deep remixes. His remix of In a Song is right in pocket with the Spinna our record crates have cherished, with an updated programming style, bringing it back to the present times.
