Successfully remixing 20-year old Grammy winning soul favorites seems like quite the tall order until you hear rising producer Manic Focus’ (pictured) take on Tracy Chapman’s iconic Give Me One Reason.
The Chicago native’s already proven skillful in weaving fresh magic around soulful hits–check out his “drum and trap” remix of Disclosure’s Latch for more proof–and he delivers the goods once again here. For this track, he’s blended what appears to be an acapella created by muting a channel of output with Bob James’ classic Take Me To The Mardi Gras and so much more for a mind-bending and inventive production. To hear it live, check his touring schedule here.
