As a lover of funk (and a bass player), I can’t deny either the great fit, or the nice plank-spankin’ going on here. The brass shows how you know a thing or two… great mixing, great playing- sho’ nuff a fourstones thing!

thanks d, the discerning ear will hear that bass lick is pretty much lifted directly from ‘ sissy strut’ (about 1:25 in) - at least that’s what I was trying for…

Well, I wasn’t going to tell, but then you went and did it yourself!
“…A Meters riff? Fourstones? Nahhhh…

Crazy good. That’s damn pretty cool.

it is funny, most part of people who re-mix never use cymbales..
Great remix!!

I think this can be sort of hit in french (or let´s say better Paris) lounge bars.
Cool combination of charmin´retro funk and french chanson. Probably Mireille Mathieu meets Bootsy Collins or something (not really in fact :-))

Yes this is very nice with some great sounds but the vox is pitchy (Dawg)for me.

I know from doing a mix with this vox it needs a lot of correction to sit well so for me this was the downside of the mix but maybe you wanted the edgy feel the original vox gives.

Matter of taste at the end but does not take away from the fact this is very nice.

vox were not a problem, tbh thought it gave the thing a little more vintage “charm”

the guitar being way out of tune was just me being lazy/tired. I didn’t hear it till I had packed it away and moved on… frowny emoticon goes here

I liked the out of tune guitar just the vox unsettled me:)!!

I think you have a typo in there - shouldn’t it be a “fourstones thang”?

and the guitar track should be marked NSFW :-)

I love it!

Effectively, something of the 70’ in this one. (Maybe not the same thing that you were talking about). But those guitars and keyboards really remember me the atmosphere of “Isaac Hayes”.
Do you know this guy..? He has been a little bit successful in the 70’..;-)

Very, very good version. Shows tremendous respect for the vocals while making for a very personal take.
Excellent performance, and excellent production.

As someone who saw bands like The Fatback Band and Brass Construction play live in small clubs on a few rare visits to the UK i know where your head is and its a cool homage to them.

This bugs me out tho coz it reminds me of something, and i will have to dig the album out now to find it.

guitar riff lifted from jimi, keys from Curtis, bass from the meters, beat from Gil Scott and of course the Memphis Horns. any other similarity is coincidence.
