WACK RECORDS 13: SMOOVE & SUONHO ‘A Little Soul’/ ‘Summertime’ (Smoove remix) (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★ It’s been two years since Wack 12 and at least a year since a version of A Little Soul appeared in a Smoove mixtape. God knows, I for one have constantly pestered Berry Geordie to release this massive collabo with Suonho. Now, finally (judging by soundcloud) he’s given the people what they want. And what they want is this supercharged soul n bass rework of A Little Soul – Aretha’s sixties number about writing hits which signally (not to mention unfairly) failed to become one of her biggest tracks. That’s irony, that is. I can’t imagine the same fate will befall this. Comes backed with a Smoove remix of the Gershwin-penned Summertime – one of the most-covered songs of all time with versions apparently numbering in the tens of thousands. Not sure whose version Smoove’s made a move on here but it sounds a little like the Billy Stewart soul version from ’66…
(Out w/c 29 October on Wack Records)
