“Play Remixed” (Boomnote Music) Cat. No. BNM008
Josh One, Grammy nominated Producer/Remixer (Nappy Roots, Sean Paul) is back with an all-star cast of musicians consisting of: Caleb Speir (Estelle, Justin Timberlake), Patrick Bailey (Breakestra, Bittersweet) & Steve Krolikowski (Repeater). The result is a dubbed out & double-timed mesh between Ambient, Rock & Reggae sure to please.
Beat Ventriloquists (recently featured on OkayPlayer.com) are back with two night/day remixes. Their downtempo/dubsteppy version accents the sensual, sultry side of Play, while their “Club Mix” takes on the more fun side, straight for the dancefloor.
Substratum’s remix is a pure filtered, dubbed out soundscape with live vibraphone (Alexander Burke) weaving in and out, accenting her beautiful vocal.
“This spiritual love child of Sade and D’Angelo mixes sweet soul vocals, jazz-funk instrumentation and hip-hop rhythms by underground Bay Area beatmasters. Goapele can kick it in the streets as in the lounge.” – Rolling Stone
“Goapele’s smoky, sensual voice is a beacon that shines on a set that wisely steers clear of overproduction. While calling to mind such influences as Nina Simone and Sade, this classic chanteuse-in-the-making is definitely her own woman of substance.” – Billboard Magazine
