Fat Freddy’s Drop need no introduction but let me give you a bit of background on the collab between FFD and Jazzanova. They wanted to create a new feeling. “Flashback” is a heavily dub drenched souler, Jazzanova wanted something light, a house tune for club peak times but also for mediterranean after hours. In one word: something “easy” .
The metamorphosis started, “Flashback” became more and more lifting and driving and in the end a real house burner which is also released on the CD version of the “Worldwide Compilation Of The Year”, “Jazzanova – Remixes 2002-2005”. Jazzanova deliver the proof that the outstanding voice and charme of FAT FREDDYS DROP´s vocalist Joe Dukie shows its unique flavor in way more than only one context. There´s nearly nothing left of the original mix besides some snippets of the FFD´s brass section.
