I was there in 1976 when "Fly Like an Eagle" came out; it was ubiquitous and yet I don't remember it for the socially-conscious cast of the lyrics, and I don't remember the overall song being this good. Uh, because it wasn't ... not the way this Soundhog remix is: in a word, brilliant.
What he does, this Soundhog chap, is to recalibrate our appreciation of some classic number we think we know by remixing it to suit today's aural expectations. So, another theme of this set is increasing our delight in classic tracks through either remixing or recontextualizing in a mix.
The tunes included here go from strength to strength -- in fact, the set is mainly drawn from the decade spanning 1995-2005, or as it is wistfully known to devotees: The golden age of downtempo, music that was the soundtrack to many a 4:20-themed event, I have no doubt ... just as it is today.
Caution: Exposure to Rhythm, Grace and Pleasure may be temporarily, deliciously disabling.
