Ray Charles is no stranger to the remix treatment – there’s a nice selection of ghetto-funk reworks of his tunes out there (yes, Father Funk, I’m looking at you!!), and this isn’t the first attempt to remodel this classic tune for the dancefloor. So, I hear you ask, why is it worthy of my ears? The answer is simple – because it works. It’s not too swingy (Is that a word?) but brings that electro-swing feel from the off, based firmly around that instantly recognisable brass riff. Importantly it respects the original, pitching down to incorporate the inevitable singalong opportunities.
