After digging through the Nylon Trax archives Jaymz has reworked a couple of great tracks for the 3rd installment of his remix EP series.
“Power To The People” featuring Joshua Tree is a reminder that our civil rights are constantly under attack often resulting in death of an innocent, false imprisonment or the many other injustices that plague our citizens.
Joshua delivers powerful and timeless vocals that are drenched in pride and inspiration while Jaymz keeps you locked into a hypnotic rhythm that is both stouthearted and sumptuous.
“Shine Like A Star In The Morning” vocal is a direct reference of a Negro Spiritual or Field Song created by enslaved African people in the United States.
Negro Spirituals were primarily expressions of religious faith. Some may also have served as socio-political protests veiled as assimilation to white American culture and other songs contained explicit instructions to fugitive slaves on how to avoid capture, and on which routes to take to successfully make their way to freedom.
Jaymz stands firm on the original message and brilliantly frames the vocals into the modernistic Deep House sounds of today.
