IDRIS MUHAMMAD - KUDU REMIX COULD THIS BE HEAVEN

THEY DON'T GET MUCH MORE ANTHEMIC THAN IDRIS MUHAMMAD'S 'COULD HEAVEN EVER BE LIKE THIS' AND WHO BETTER TO REWORK IT THAN EDIT ROYALTY, LATE NITE TUFF GUY. SUBTLE IN HIS TOUCHES YET INCORPORATING A MORE DJ FRIENDLY, DANCEFLOOR ORIENTATED BEAT AND TENSION BUILDING INTRO WHICH TEASES ELEMENTS OF THIS CLASSIC, BEFORE THAT INSTANTLY RECOGNISABLE BASS RIFF AND STACCATO GUITAR CHORDS COME INTO PLAY. THAT SUBTLETY IS KEY WHEN IT COMES TO HANDLING A RECORD AS EPIC AS THIS, ELEMENTS ARE ACCENTUATED AND LOOPED, DELICATE EFFECTS ARE WOVEN IN, BUT THE SOUL AND FEELING OF IDRIS' MUSIC IS LOVINGLY MAINTAINED BY LNTG. AND FOR THE PURISTS OUT THERE, THE FLIP HOUSES THE ORIGINAL MIX SO YOU'VE GOT TWO PATHS TO HEAVEN TO CHOOSE FROM. THERE'S NO DOUBTING THAT IDRIS MUHAMMAD'S "COULD HEAVEN EVER BE LIKE THIS" IS A STONE-COLD CLASSIC; A SPARKLING, HEAVENLY CHUNK OF DREAMY, DISCO-ERA JAZZ-FUNK THAT'S CAPABLE OF REDUCING GROWN MEN AND WOMEN TO TEARS WHEN PLAYED AT THE RIGHT TIME. SOME COULD ARGUE THAT IT'S SO GOOD THAT IT S - NEW RELEASE

DESCRIPTION:
They don't get much more anthemic than Idris Muhammad's 'Could Heaven Ever Be Like This' and who better to rework it than edit royalty, Late Nite Tuff Guy. Subtle in his touches yet incorporating a more DJ friendly, dancefloor orientated beat and tension building intro which teases elements of this classic, before that instantly recognisable bass riff and staccato guitar chords come into play. That subtlety is key when it comes to handling a record as epic as this, elements are accentuated and looped, delicate effects are woven in, but the soul and feeling of Idris' music is lovingly maintained by LNTG. And for the purists out there, the flip houses the original mix so you've got two paths to heaven to choose from. There's no doubting that Idris Muhammad's "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" is a stone-cold classic; a sparkling, heavenly chunk of dreamy, disco-era jazz-funk that's capable of reducing grown men and women to tears when played at the right time. Some could argue that it's so good that it s
