Image: 1604926 The “Street Player” EP covers and reimagines the Disco classic originally made famous by Chicago, and later sampled and turned into a House classic by Kenny Dope & The Bucketheads.

With the help of the UK’s Colonel Red on all leading vocals, Liquid Beat’s crew of in-house producers each recreated unique covers of “Street Player” in their own signature styles.

Label head Matt Nelkin’s version of “Street Player” is a tight, streamlined adaptation of the original that uses live players to add an updated soul and funk feel. Prolific producer HOT16 offers up a New Funk twist with intricate drum machine work, bass, guitar, and synths replacing the iconic horn lines perfectly. Roane Namuh on the other hand gives the whole composition a makeover transforming the track into a soulful Deep House groove with Colonel Red matching the lyrics perfectly around the rhythms. And lastly, Liquid Beat newcomer DaiN turns in an original, new school R&B styled composition that works as a culminating meditation on the Street Player theme.

The “Street Player” EP was truly a labor of love by the entire Liquid Beat crew and is aimed strictly at DJs and music lovers with a passion for the past and an eye towards the future. Anyone who is familiar with the original version will find this release to be a welcome alternate and a sure shot crate staple.
