Hot Khan

If u don't have a soft spot for Chaka Khan, then u probably don't have a soft spot at all, ok maybe not. I love most genre's, there is good stuff in every one of them, the way I see it, and you just don't get any better than Chaka when it comes to Soul. Here is a very infectious, hot re-edit of the Khan's 1996 collaboration with Me'shell Ndegeocello 'Never Miss The Water' from the Rawshot team. The track is lush and has some fantastic 70's orchestration, Me'shell's cool, slightly detached rap brings it bang up to date, for the nineties of course. The girl is on fire! um correction, this girl is always on fire!

The two Chrises have been very quiet about this particular treasure trove, but I'm afraid to say that - constantly being on the lookout for fresh music and refreshing insight - I stumbled across ANOE today. And I'm systematically raiding your MP3s! Promise I won't tell anyone else...

Hey Greg, how u doing? - yeah i guess we havent done much talking about it, but we are getting a fair bit of interest from the locals, lots of fun. go right ahead download em - that's what the tracks are here for, not the highest quality, i guess that wouldnt be fair to the artists ;) we do our best to keep the diversity going, it's my big thing really.

Praise be for the diversity - variety is the splice of life... Your combined tastes, of course, are top notch. See you on the decks or dancefloor soon (and return my MiniDisc!)
