Not only is it a challenge to remix a classic, but also a risk. Bassnectar took on the job of “digitally enhancing” Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good.” The added sizzling big beats backs the diva’s powerful vocals in his work and it does a pretty fine job of revitalizing the classic.
Bassnectar’s remix joins other producers such as Kaskade, RAC, and Zeds Dead in a project that reworks other lengednary vocalists such as Billie Halliday and Ella Fitzgerald. All of the tracks will be compiled in Verve Remixed: The First Ladies Project.
The album will be officially released on July 16, 2013.
