    I call this track The Long Neck, after a phrase that a buddy of mine coined to describe the prolonged, involuntary and repetitive head nodding caused by hard and soulful grooves. My approach to this remix is an homage (of sorts) to the music that I grew up with; music that was born of the African diaspora. The sounds, the rhythms, cultivated over generations in juke joints, woodsheds and block parties, spawned what the world would come to know as the Blues, Jazz, Rock, Funk and Hip Hop. 

    Some of the inspiration came from the likes of: Rose RoyceBooker T and The MG'sJoe Farrell, Joe Zawinul and Cannonball AdderlyHerbie Hancock and Richard Pryor.

    My goal for this track was to stay close to the source material and craft an arrangement that these guys (Hunter/Harland) might see themselves actually playing. Not sure if I accomplished that goal, but it was a fun exercise, nonetheless.
