Donny Hathaway – The Ghetto (Dimitri From Paris Inna Disco)SC Exclusive er dagens godlåt.
I got the opportunity to officially remix this classic song to coincide with the release of a new Donny Hathaway box set. I was given the original multitrack master of the studio version (different from the live version)and it consisted of 8 different instrument and vocal tracks (as opposed to the more usual 24 tracks)
When I take on a remix, my first goal is to make it work on a current dance floor. I like to stay very close to the originally recorded sound and In most case there’s plenty to be reworked on the multitrack master to achieve this.
This case proved a little different as there were few rhythm elements I could use to fit within current standards of club loudness levels. So I decided to take a slightly different approach, and add a new set of (acoustic) drums, to bend the original Soul vibe a little towards Disco territory.
This remix is exclusive to my soundcloud page and free to download as a 16bit WAV file
