IAMNOBODI Puts A Little Spice Into D'Angelo's Brown Sugar

Friday, April 4, 2014


There is a bear rocking a ballerina tutu in the room --- and we all know what it is. Yeah, I'm quite tired of entertaining the idea that D'Angelo is on the road to comeback and releasing new material. We thought it was going to happen last year for really reals, and well, we got some great live performances right? Ah, well, he'll get around to making album #3, just that I hope I won't be residing at Shady Pines Retirement Home with a messed up hip when he does. I mean, I want to enjoy some newness while I'm still able to get out of bed without my bones cracking and my hearing intact.

Retracing steps back to the classics of D is what has to be done, and IAMNOBODI has put his producing wizardry (which you can experience more in-depth at his SoundCloud spot) to the test by crafting what is a mighty stellar remix of "Brown Sugar". He already had help, as "Brown Sugar" is just an all-around great joint from 1995 (and my favorite D cut, btw), but he revs things up a bit by lacing the track with swirling sonic synths to take the song to a noughties slickness, and it's some hot brown sugar that is just bubbling over. As we lose keep our patience with one of soul's biggest enigmas, this refix is the pure remedy to fill the void till D's proper return.
