Philippe Cohen Solal (of Gotan Project) celebrates the 50th anniversary of Summer of Love, covering one of its anthems "Aquarius / Let The Sunshine In" of HAIR the musical which premiered on stage in October 1967.
A complex but soothing modern reggae moombathon riddim carried by the ethereal harmonies of legendary Jamaican reggae singer Horace Andy (Massive Attack, Skylarking , Ain't No Sunshine...) with a delivering coda sung by an empowering choir.
¡Ya Basta! Records asked two legends of the underground scene, somewhat connected to the spirituality of the song, to remix this take. First with an Afro House / Deep-House take of the master of the genre @Boddhi-Satva , and jack of all trades, mashup virtuoso @JStar-1 (remixer of Major Lazer / DJ Vadim...) for a retro catchy drum'n'bass/UK bass remix. Finally Lazy Flow and Face-T deliver a dancehall filler of a remix.
