Hidden Beach kicks off the summer with the launch of a new remix compilation series entitled CRATES: REMIX FUNDAMENTALS VOLUME 1 SPRING SUMMER FEELING. The first volumes of this series will be eclectic collections of Jill Scott hits remixed and re-grooved by some of the music industry’s best DJs and Producer/Remixers.
Jill Scott’s original vocals were paired with some of music’s most influential DJs and Producer/Remixers. DJ Jazzy Jeff, the architect of Scott’s multi-platinum debut “Who Is Jill Scott?,” was the only producer to work directly with Jill Scott. His Jazzy Jeff Redux of “A Long Walk” appears for the first time on CD on VOLUME 1.
The centerpiece of CRATES: VOLUME 1 is “Spring Summer Feeling – The Ron Trent Mix” a lush ten minute plus House music re-tooling of Jill Scott’s homage to Minnie Ripperton that will transport audiences poolside in Miami. Ron Trent offers ” Voices like Jill’s are a credit to the expansive legacy of our culture. We need more like her.” He continues, “It was an honor to have offered my rendition of “Spring Summer Feeling.” I paid close attention to the integrity of her voice also keeping with the uptempo roots of R&B and Afro-Beat flavor. The misconception is dance music is something divorced from R&B when it is historically one in the same.”
Besides Ron Trent and DJ Jazzy Jeff, on CRATES: VOLUME 1, fans will be treated to new versions of their favorite Jill Scott songs by Mr Mig (Beyoncé, Diddy, Kristine W), Ca$e Boogie (Young Money, Jamie Foxx), and Jaymes”Th3ree Fourteen” Ball (Trick Daddy, Maybach Music) among others.
