V/A - Street Player EP (Vinyl EP)

Limited twelve inch vinyl pressing. The Street Player EP covers and reimagines the disco classic originally made famous by Chicago, and later sampled and turned into a house classic by Kenny Dope & The Bucketheads.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. DON'T JUST LISTEN TO MUSIC EXPERIENCE IT.
