The Grammy award winning Jazz vocalist Gregory Porter is probably one of the coolest people walking the planet with his incredible presence and god given voice. Who else but Berlin based enigma Claptone could do this voice justice on the dance floor!?
“When I first got the offer to remix Gregory Porter I turned this offer down as I was too scared to lay hands on one of his graceful recordings. Almost a year after the first offer I was approached again. This time I pulled all my courage together and started to take a journey into Liquid Spirit. I close my eyes and enter the basement. I feel the dust between my fingers, I smell the smoke, I get into the rhythm of the band playing. Now I just have to translate that strong sonic image into the language of the club. Such translation can be tricky at times. It is like translating a poem from one language to another, where not only the words count but the rhyme, the rhythm, the melody. I can only hope I did justice to Gregory Porter, but what I know is that this remix does justice to the clubs” says Claptone.
This mix bumps! Its no wonder that “Liquid Spirit” has reached #1 Beatport Top 100, #5 Belgian Singles Chart and now is set to be a massive Ibizian anthem.
