"Lord Finesse makes a Motown Remixes project."


          

Album Title: Motown State of Mind
When: June 26th (with a 7" Box Set dropping on July 24th)
Please: Any other Motown remix albums over hip-hop beats? Hook me up!
First Song: Marvin Gaye "I Want You" (Underboss Remix)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuqxVB_rH_4


Swipe from Finesse's instagram:

"I have a project available June 26th called “Lord Finesse: Motown State of Mind” Motown/UMG Marvin Gaye - I Want You (Underboss Mix) is out now on all streaming platforms! This is the first song from my album ‘Motown State of Mind,’ available for streaming & download on 6/26 and in an exclusive 45 RPM box set on 7/24. I want to Salute all involved assisting me making the following project come to life."

Tracklist: (box set will include the original versions of songs)

Michael Jackson – I Wanna Be Where You Are (Underboss Remix)
Marvin Gaye – I Want You (Underboss Remix)
DeBarge– I Like It (Soul Synopsis Mix)
Switch – There'll Never Be (Solidified Soul Mix)
Eddie Kendricks – Body Talk (TBG Mix)
Sisters Love – Now Is The Time (The Mack Revisited Mix)
Jackson 5 – Tribute Medley (Underboss Remix)

...personally I'll be picking up the regular vinyl since I don't need the OG versions, but I wouldn't knock anyone who grabs the box set, I can't imagine they'll be many of them. Also, I don't think I've came across any DeBarge remixes, that's dope.

We talked at length about the project, and delved into his legacy and impact. As cool and knowledgeable and you'd suspect.

...i often wondered why as dope as he is on the mic, his output is more as a producer. ...and yes, anyone who hasn't seen him spin live? He's SUPER DOPE, one of my favorite DJ's who's got an amazing ear, plus he's nice as fuck with the scratching, blends and timing.

It trips me out that his career as a solo rapper pretty much ended close to 25 years ago. Since then he's rapped on the DITC project and a few scattered guest verses, but he's mostly worked as a prodcer.

Haven't had the pleasure. Would love to catch him live, but in this day and age, who knows when I'll have the chance again.

It sounds like a dope project, but i'd much rather have it on one record than a bunch of 7's
