If you didn’t know, Bunny Mack is an artist from the late 70s and early 80s, being voted artist of the year by AFRICA Music. Here Defected let loose some of their finest remixers on his seminal masterpiece Let Me Love You.
DJ Gregory is first up, and the great news is that he retains all the African high end guitar and Sierra Leone rhythm. There’s chugging drum work that meanders through the trackm, reminiscent of great African musicians. This is more of a soulful selection for Defected, and it cries to be dropped at a laidback terrace on a Sunday afternoon. That being said, Gregory also gives a little nudge to remind us of the sound that reverberated in clubs when Studio 54 was still around. Bugz In The Attic give the tune three rerubs. There are classic shanty town rhythms aplenty here, even playing glass bottles with sticks through their funky house remix. Lush keyboards swirl around to maintain the vibe set up DJ Gregory, and the Grand High Priest and Andy Daniell also give it some attention, treating the track with utmost respect.
This is definitely an tune for early in the evening, but it’s well worth a visit. The only criticism I have is that the mixes do all sound pretty similar… Perhaps someone should have twisted it a little bit and given it just a hint of a new direction.
