If you told me I’d dig a cover of the R. Kelly jewel “Ignition (Remix)” where the comically memorable vocals had been replaced by an arrangement of trumpets I’d have said “Get the fuck outta here with that nonsense!” Very politely and professionally of course. Lo and behold though, here I am writing the praises of the imaginative rework from Brooklyn duo Brasstracks [you should really check out the insane “Bitch Better Have My Money” remix these guys put together alongside Luca Lush if you haven’t already].
And I’m kicking myself for just now coming across the ten month old track, what with its ambitious brass work and overall flawless production; capturing the original’s good-time feel elevating this to “on repeat” status. But it’s found a spot in my regular rotation now and I encourage the same for you!
