    ***UPDATE: I felt both pleased and felt kinda bad that people like this remix but some missed out on it, so just for a limited time, I'm making it available for download via this ALTERNATE link: http://ahmedisthemusic.bandcamp.com/track/fatback-faith-love-wicki-like-this
    Enjoy...***

    This is what happened when I took 1974's "Wicki Wacky" from The Fatback Band and mashed it up with 1998's "Love Like This" from Faith Evans...

    I present to you...FATBACK FAITH's "LOVE WICKI LIKE THIS"!!!

    The title may look funny at first appearance, but I bet you'll have fun saying it and even use your hand like you're scratching a record lol

    So, I took a few samples from Fatback, got the entire a cappella of Faith Evans' lead & background singers' vocals from my good buddy DJ Phaze, did some semi-fancy editing and added new percussion and horn sections parts that aren't from either songs, did the hokey-pokey and turned myself around, mixed, mastered, and finally bounced! I didn't time stretch or even change the pitch of the songs...they were BOTH in the exact same key and relatively in the same tempo (just had to shift the vocals a little since the original was live w/ no click track, naturally.

    That's about it...was a headache to edit (took over 4 days to get the right feel I wanted). Looking forward to hearing this in the club because people hardly know about "Wicki Wacky" unless they grew up during that era as it was one of the club bangers of its time, and obviously "Love Like This" was and still is the club banger of the 90s and onward (though mostly the Fatman Scoop remix version).

    I can see B-boys/girls as well as senior citizens rockin to this and hope you enjoy, too!

    100 downloads and then it's GONE!!!
