say yes

Today, a 2002 white label remix from one of San Francisco's favorite soulful house DJs, David Harness. His weekly Sunday Soul Sessions at Temple are something of legend, and though the man's production work is not as large as one might like, his remix work is expansive and ranges all over the musical map. The track I'm sharing today is an unofficial remix of this piece by Floetry. Harness reworks "Say Yes" in a magical way, transforming a smooth-ass soul sex jam into a 121-bpm deep house joint that could get floors smoking. In other words, the track still oozes sex, but in a sweatier fashion: hi-hats and kicks are high in the mix, lush and non-cheesy symphonic synths provide some nice backing to the masterfully-placed vocal samples, and the bass just rides like Randolph. Probably one of my favorite tracks at the moment, "Say Yes" is an earworm that'll have you singing whenever you see a hot something on the street. Check out Harness' upcoming release, "The Rhythm," featuring some choice remixes, too.
