Image: 1608186 Going one above today’s current wild wild west landscape of digital
sampling and officially licensing a legendary ‘60s-era song that’s
made its rounds in the golden era of sample based hip-hop. Akshin
Alizadeh, the man from Azerbaijan, is the lucky one tapped from the
label’s roster to remix Marlena Shaw’s “Woman of the Ghetto.”
The producer’s strong funk and nu-jazz influences, as well as his
ability to combine funky grooves with punchy hip-hop beats, are on
full display once again. Rightfully dramatic orchestral strings give
way to bluesy rhythmic wah-wah guitar plucking, slightly cabaret-ish
piano, pitch bending keys, and a totally sultry sax. The percussion
sounds like signature Alizadeh with a flickering hat pattern, well
placed snare rolls, and punchy interplay with the kick. For the DJs
needing to spice things up, an instrumental is included.

A. Woman Of The Ghetto (Akshin Alizadeh Remix)
B. Woman Of The Ghetto (Akshin Alizadeh Instrumental Mix) Available from 11.08.2017
