Soul folk of a certain vintage will have fond memories of George McCrae’s 1975 outing ‘I Get Lifted’. The tune’s been regularly sampled (most famously by Luther and Janet on ‘The Best Things In Life Are Free’) but now it enjoying a complete makeover courtesy of Sheffield DJ SANDY TURNBULL.
Released on his own Galleria Records, Sandy puts a pounding, insistent soulful house spin on the tune and opts to simply call it ‘Lifted’. With so much going on (femme vocals, beefy brass, a hypotonic riff) he can keep that title nice and simple!
The B side is a bumpy, ‘The Musica’ … big beats and funky, looped disco elements!
‘Lifted/ The Musica’ will be released on Traxsource promo June 21st / Full release July 5th 2016 on Galleria Records.
