Reel People proudly present ‘Upside’, the third single from their critically acclaimed album ‘Seven Ways To Wonder’. Remixes come courtesy of Karizma, Bugz In The Attic and Pete Kuzma.

The original album mix, a slice of classic and contemporary soul, has a sunny, club swing with a crisp, perfectly pitched vocal performance from New York underground soul artist Darien.

As the title would suggest, Karizma’s ‘Old’s Kool’ mix has an air of Morales, Knuckles or Terry, and loops the vocals into a trance-like state over a tough, bumpy track with rhodes-y keys. An accomplished international DJ with an innovative, highly skilled style, Baltimore’s Karizma, alongside DJ Spen, has worked on tracks for Mary J Blige
Everything But The Girl and Lenny Kravitz. Plus, Karizma’s productions have been championed by the likes of Louie Vega, Dennis Ferrer and Tony Humphries.

Bugz In The Attic do what they do best, re-working the track into a bouncy, broken beat floorfiller in both vocal (‘Upside’) and instrumental (‘Dubside’) format. Bugz are a collective who require little introduction, having won themselves a place in the hearts of clubbers worldwide with their DJ sets, productions and remixes, which include Zero7, Macy Gray and 4 Hero.

Pete Kuzma’s remix has a similar vibe to the original, adding different sounds, instrumentation and shuffle. Kuzma is currently musical director and keys player for Jill Scott, produces records with Jazzy Jeff and has toured and performed with Stevie Wonder, Mos Def and Musiq Soulchild. Kuzma has also produced artists including Herbie Hancock and Dwele.
