DJ Spinna feat. Heavy - We Can Change This World
‘We Can Change This World’ is a deep, optimistic, soulful jazzy collaboration between DJ Spinna (aka Vincent Williams) and New York duo, Heavy (Nicky Guiland and Casey Benjamin). Perfect for summer days/nights, this release also includes remixes from Osunlade (head of Yoruba Records).
The 'Club Mix' kicks off with a slightly broken instrumental followed by a jazzy piano. The vocals of Nicky Guiland, which thankfully are not overpowering, combine with a deep soulful melody to build the track up to its peak, when the rhythm and samba drums kick in. This version should mix well with a Masters At Work or Mark Mac (4Hero) release. For those of you who don't like vocals, check the 'Club Instrumental Mix', which has been stripped of the vocal.
On the flip Osunlade's is more Latin tinged with heavy percussion, stripped out cosmic melodies and a deadly bass line. A cleaner cut, it still preserves the deep soulful vibe but allows the vocal to roll more freely in tandem with delicate chords which push the track forward. A typical Osunlade remix, it works in elements of jazz, samba and heavy percussion with rolling and punchy beats. As with the A-side, there is a similar instrumental version too.
'We Can Change This World' is another strong effort from DJ Spinna with spot on remixes. Keep an eye out for further releases from Mr. Williams. Maybe he can indeed change the world...
