We all know that DJ SPEN and his QUANTIZE crew love nothing better than putting new spins on soul classics and for their latest release they’ve chosen a 24 carat cut to work on… Anita Baker’s ‘Whatever It Takes’

The lovely tune first surfaced on Ms B’s 1990 ‘Compositions’ album and it was wonderful showcase for her talents then at their  soulful peak.

Undaunted by the beauty of the original, Quantize have had Belgian master mixer KREWCIAL reimagine it. He cranks up the beats, of course, but the track remains ultra soulful – that’s  chiefly down to a fab vocal from NIMIWARI whose delivery has some of those remarkable Anita Baker vocal mannerisms!

The original mix clocks in at a lovely eight minutes plus and there are the usual edits. Recommended!
