Tall Black Guy adds another song for your Summer soundtrack (audio)
Tall Black Guy seems like he’s in full-on Summer mode these days, because this new remix that he did of Louie Vega’s “Because We Love It” is the perfect addition of any Summer soundtrack. Tall Black Guy, rather than completely flipping the song on it’s head, does an excellent job of keeping Vega’s bright, soulful jazz track intact, while also adding the just the right amount of that TBG bounce with drums that ride the line perfectly between a house and hip-hop beat. And surprisingly the end result really reminds me of Pharaoh Sanders’s spiritual jazz classic, “You’ve Got To Have Freedom”, which is praise of the highest order. Let’s hope Tall Black Guy continues to keep putting out songs for the summer to create the ultimate Summer soundtrack.
