Christian ‘Kon’ Taylor’s KONTemporary imprint goes from strength to strength! This, the fourth release sees the Boston crate diggin’ selector, producer and remixer extraordinaire reworking Alicia Myers’ gospel tinged roof-raiser ‘I Want To Thank You’ to devastating effect!
This killer 1981 Rare-Groove / Disco classic has long been a secret weapon of DJ’s who dig that bit deeper, an underground classic for sure. Imagine then, getting your hands on the master tapes, and being allowed to go DEEP on the arrangements and stems and crafting your own special versions of this absolute monster cut? Well, that’s what KON’s done! On this high quality, top-shelf 12″ you get 2 brand new mixes including a heavyweight ‘dubapella’ version pushing Alicia’s gorgeous voice deep into the delay. KONtemporary always bring that heat, and this latest jam is no exception, boasting full sleeve artwork, stellar mastering and a super nice pressing.
Essential business right here! The first pressing of this was going for silly money on Discogs. Thankfully they did a repress!!!
A – I Want To Thank You (Kon’s Shine Your Light Remix)
