Now this is some groovy ish. DJ Center and Gretchen Parlato's cover of Rufus and Chaka's "You Got the Love" is beautifully remixed by Sam Champ. If this song was a cloud, we'd float on it. Awesomeness. The track is a free download for the week - grab it fast!
The remix is part of a download series working up to DJ Center's October release of Everything In Time Remixed. Remixes include work by DJ Spinna, Waajeed, DJ Eleven, J.Rawls, Captain Planet, and others - amazing lineup much?
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."

Everything in Time is a global soul record bringing back a low-end theory and warmth thatʼs been absent in music as of late. Itʼs a record for a generation raised on a foundation of hip hop and jazz, but grown with a broader musical palate. Itʼs roots music without being reggae, and soul music without being a throw back to the past.
As the songs unfold on Everything in Time, youʼre enveloped in lush piano chords, warm bass lines, boom-bap drum patterns, flying tambourines, and soaring horns. The guests DJ Center chose for his album are the perfect marriage to every song. The record features everyone from favorites like Oddisee and Zaki Ibrahim to the up-and-coming Gretchen Parlato (whoʼs worked with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding) and Samia Farah (whoʼs dub reggae and jazz vocal styles give her a rare, distinctive sound).
The icing on the cake is the remix of “Tout Passe” (CD only) contributed by the incredibly talented Waajeed of The Platinum Pied Pipers. The underlying essence of this record is timeless music. Listen unhurriedly, as all great things happen in time.
