Every time our friend from down under Copycat applies his precision scalpel to a beloved classic, the results are a respectful transformation, maintaining the spirit of the original but adding enough boom bap to satisfy the dance floor. Those in the know number high enough that his free downloads disappear with a quickness.
Available since last night, his remix of Sade’s “Jezebel”—from 1985’s Promise full-length—continues his winning streak. Copycat is “giving away the first 100 D/Ls for free. Once [they’re] all gone this will be available only via Bandcamp later today as part of the Summer On The Street E.P.”
At eight tracks (generous for an E.P.!), the forthcoming tracklist looks promising:
I’ll Take You There
She Is A Woman
Long & Winding Road
