Super Value Edits – Eddie Kendricks – Goin’ Up In Smoke

This amazing re-work of a classic from yesteryear is a prime example of the benefit in less is more. Taking the best bits from the original that are complimentary and opening with a hypnotic groove and subtle vocal overtones, this is one is certainly best suited to a packed dancefloor in the early hours of the morning (which is where I first heard it). Getting well into the track before the real drop the long four four beat lays the platform for it to shine in its full glory around the  5.oo minute mark and what a wondrous drop it is. I need to be honest and say that I don’t know who was responsible for this edit but to all the people who are opposed to editing classics then I would tell them to listen to this and then re-think that stance.
