Groove Junkies, Chellena Black

MHR0052 | 2012-03-19  
This explosive cover of the Billie Holiday classic is an uplifting, Gospel house inspired workout with a message that’s as timely as ever. Groove Junkies’ venerable front man Evan Landes and singer extraordinaire Chellena Black (remember this name) team up on a studio collaboration that’s destined to take the party to the next level!

Early support from: Danny Krivit, DJ Spen, Richard Earnshaw, DJ Meme, King Britt, DJ Yass, Jask, Groove Assassin, Bobby & Steve, Hec Romero, Luis Radio, Marques Wyatt, Master Kev, Robert Owens, DJ Pierre, DJ Dealer, Morten Trust, Shane D, Craig Stewart, Dave Doyle, Benji Candelario, Husky, Craig Bartlett, Sarah Foote.......and more (see below).

Los Angeles by way of Chicago vocalist Chellena Black has shared the stage and worked with the likes of Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Yolanda Adams, Erykah Badu, Ann Nesby, Teresa Griffin, Byron Stingily, Ron Carroll, Mike Dunn, Georgie Porgie, Tony Powell and Gabriel Horizon to name a few. Her Gospel roots, blessed spirit and incredible talent is on full display and we’re thrilled to be able to showcase her on such an iconic song.

And there’s yet another Chi-town connection with the project. We’re honored to have the ’Legendary’ Terry Hunter on board handling remix duties! Terry truly needs no introduction as he has done remixes for some of the biggest artists on the planet, produced and penned numerous chart toppers, wowed fans around the world with his DJing prowess and has worked with a ’who’s who’ list of producer’s and singers throughout his remarkable career.

There are 3 standout vocal mixes with 2 instrumentals from Evan and Terry to choose from. “Groove Junkies Bless The Vox Mix” and the “Terry Hunter BANG Sunday Club Mix” pay homage to the original song’s structure, but also include additional original lyrics and background vocals that make this cover so unique. Both mixes are similar in flavor, but each producer’s nuanced style gives each mix their own distinct personality. “Groove Junkies Elevation Mix” bypasses the verse’s and chorus’ and features the hyper ’call and response’ vocals and instrumentation, taking things straight to the Sanctuary! All we can say is pick your poison!! Oh....and be on the lookout for the PT 2 package a little further down the road with none other than DJ Spen tagged for the remix. ENJOY.
