Ray Charles “I Got A Woman (Dan Gerous X Basement Freaks Bootleg)”
“I’ve Got A Woman” by Ray Charles is a tune that always seems to do it on the dance floor no matter where you are. There’s just something infectious about the song and as soon as the vocals hit, everyone gets on the floor. Basement Freaks and Dan Gerous have gone and done a really nice remix version with and added some modern club boom. Basement Freaks has been a long time favorite producer / remixer of mine. If you have not done so, do yourself a favor and check out his other tunes on his Soundcloud page here.
