Black Daylight

Suntzu Sound, 1Luv

Yoruba Records
YS10 | 2006-10-26  
Dr. J, of the Suntzu Sound artist collective in Seattle, has been quietly turning heads with his 1Luv music project. 1Luv began its quiet assault on the music world with the brazilian influenced 'The Answer' which was featured on Jazzanova & Resoul compilation 'Secret Love 2'. Then in mid 2006, producer extraordinaire, Dixon, remixed 1Luv's 'Above You' which was featured on the Japanese compilation 'Inspiration 'Exclusives''.

But the song that has been talked about the most this year for 1Luv is their broken beat banger, 'Black Daylight'. Originally released on the Suntzu Sound Label, this tune quickly became a favorite in the West London broken beat scene and a massive anthem at the legendary 'Co-Op' nights. The song was then picked up by Osunlade to get the Yoruba treatment, and now is re-released on Yoruba Records with some exclusives not featured in its original release.

The original song has been revised and engineered by Yoruba master himself, Osunlade, so you can now enjoy the original with an extra thump and punch that will make the listening experience even more enjoyable than before. Now, let's get to the exclusives.

On our first remix, Yoruba's mysterious wunderkind, Afefe Iku, brings a total funked out reworking of 'Black Daylight'. Jzabela's lovely vocals find a beautiful spot in Afefe's infectious groove. With its hard hitting snares, and slapped bass funk, Afefe steps out of the dance realm we're used to hearing from him, and bangs out a blazing remix for this release. We can't say enough about Afefe, and as long as he keeps bringing it like this, we really won't mind whether he wants to talk or not.

Finishing off the already sure fire single is a big remix for the househeads courtesy of Sonar Kollektiv's own Slope. With this remix, Slope captures some true Yoruba vibes on this one with its minimal yet very expressive and percussive beat and aims straight to the dancefloor. Some nice synth work here, but it really is about the beat Jzabela's voice. You would think you would need something more, but Slope's beat and her voice carry the song so well that the minimal electronics might not even seem necessary. Check out the reaction from the crowd once the breaks hit. Yoruba does justice to a song that probably didn't need, but we're sure glad we got it.
