Marlena Shaw: Woman Of The Ghetto

Marlena Shaw: Woman Of The Ghetto
Artist: Marlena Shaw
Title: Woman Of The Ghetto
Product Type: 12-INCH SINGLE

Cold Busted's 100th release is now available on a 12 inch. How does a label celebrate such a milestone? By going one above today's current wild wild west landscape of digital sampling and officially licensing a legendary '60s-era song that's made it's rounds in the golden era of sample based hip-hop. Akshin Alizadeh, the man from Azerbaijan, is the lucky one tapped from the label's roster to remix Marlena Shaw's "Woman of the Ghetto." The producer's strong funk and nu-jazz influences, as well as his ability to combine funky grooves with punchy hip-hop beats, are on full display once again. Rightfully dramatic orchestral strings give way to bluesy rhythmic wah-wah guitar plucking, slightly cabaret-ish piano, pitch bending keys, and a totally sultry sax. The percussion sounds like signature Alizadeh with a flickering hat pattern, well placed snare rolls, and punchy interplay with the kick. For the DJs needing to spice things up, an instrumental is included. If this achievement is any indication of the new century of releases from Cold Busted then bring on one hundred more!
