DJ Center – Remix by DJ Spinna + Making Of The Vinyl

Brooklyn’s own DJ Center hooked up with DJ Spinna to remix “In A Song” featuring Middle Child, a track off the album Everything In Time. With an anthem-like chorus and thumping groove, “In A Song” is packed with bump and boogie, warmth and soul – a natural choice for DJs, dance floors and lovers of modern soul music with an instant vintage feel. DJ Spinna needs no introduction, and he adds his own style to the track here in the “Back from the Future Remix.”
