This is the first of two 12″s accompanying the Jazzanova Remix compilation Upside Down. The remix by Dima Studitsky on the B-Side is a bonus not to be found on the compilation!
Originally released with the album Of All The Things from 2008, Little Bird features the exceptional tonsils of José James. A singer who has worked with luminaries like Moodyman and Flying Lotus and is capable of bridging traditional jazz vocals with modern sounding club music. Alex Barck’s rework of the song does not only do justice to the original but turns into a sure shot dancefloor smash with lots of peaks and emphasis. You will see the ladies go bezerk over this one, trust us!
I Can See is also one of the tracks off the Of All The Things album and features no other than Ben Westbeech on vocals. Dima Studitsky (one of Moscow’s underground club scene honchos) remixed the track in a way which makes it the perfect companionship to the one by Alex Barck. Slightly sombre, hauntingly driven, but still super sexy, just like one of the legendary club nights he runs in Moscow (“The Cult”, “Propaganda”, “Shanti” etc.). You can flip this record either way you want to and you always end up with the right track to play.
