Joey Negro Funk Equation Mix
Shield & Corrado Bucci Re-Edit
Rebirth is proud to release ‘Free Bass’, the brand new single from Dave Lee Aka Joey Negro.
Under a plethora of other monikers including Akabu, Doug Willis, The Sunburst Band, Jakatta, Raven Maize, Sessomatto, and Z Factor, Dave was one of the first artists to incorporate disco samples in house music when he began his production career in the late 80’s.
Dave moved to London in 1986 where he launched his first imprint, Republic Records home to early recordings of Burrell, Blaze, Frankie Bones, Da Posse and many more . In 1990 he released his first solo single on the prestigious New York label Nu Groove and in the following years the launch of his new label Z Records.
Joey Negro has produced remixes for artists such as Kelly Rowland, Mariah Carey, Royksopp, Roisin Murphy, Diana Ross, Pet Shop Boys, Labrynth and produced artists such as Take That and Robbie Williams. Crossover hits like ‘American Dream’, ‘The Real Life’, ‘Must Be The Music’, ‘Make A Move On Me’ and My Vision (with Seal) have led Joey Negro to be considered as one of the greatest ambassadors of European house music.
Despite the mainstream successes the majority of Dave’s productions have had their heart in underground clubland, with releases on seminal house music labels like Transmat, Easy Street, JBO, Azuli, Deconstruction, Guidance and NRK.
Freebass is an ode to the bass guitar, an unusual nu disco cut that is completely centered around a live bass jam – not unlike something you’d hear on a Larry Graham or Stanley Clarke LP.
Add in a slamming beat, some super funky clavinet riffs, a Parliament style vocal chant and you’ve got quirky club cut that’s hard to stay still to.
Rebirth producers Shield and Corrado Bucci get together to create a strong re-edit, adding atmospheric swirling, filtered strings and giving the track a deeper touch.
Surely something you will hear in your summer nights!!
Repressed on limited black vinyl.
