Most of y’all that know me know that I’ve been really into New Orleans music recently, specifically Bounce and Second Line jazz band stuff (there’s a good Wikipedia entry on Second Lines). If you get in my car, there’s a good chance I’m listening to one of Peacachoo‘s “Bounce Down” compilations, a Hot 8 Brass Band CD, or some random classic Bounce tracks. While the more “original” Bounce tracks are the ones I really love, a really important part of Bounce music is remixing non-Bounce songs into Bounce versions. This is particularly popular with R&B cuts. The “Bounce Down” compilations are full of R&B Bounce remixes, and a slew of other folks like DJ Money Fresh and DJ Lil’ Man have put out several CDs of R&B Bounce remixes. I’ve been bumping the Hot 8 Brass Bands’ version of “Sexual Healing” in the whip quite a bit and I thought it might be cool to make a Bounce remix out of it, especially since I’m such a huge fan of Bounce songs that have NOLA Brass Band samples (i.e. Ricky B’s “Y’all Holler” etc). I found the Marvin Gaye acapella and threw it on top of the horns, added the Brown Beat and that Triggerman and concocted the below. I’m not really planning on putting this out on vinyl or anything, so I thought I’d circulate it on the net.
Let me know your thoughts!
