I first found out about this in 2006 on the NINA SIMONE Remixed & Reimagined release, which features some amazing reworking of Nina Simone’s work but this by far is the stand out cut on the record. It is another formative remix by legendry Body & Soul NYC DJ François K. Remixing the implausible voice Nina Simone in ‘Here Comes The Sun’ into another one of those timeless epic DEEP-House cuts he is so well known for releasing.
This was a classic Disco cut to begin with & when someone like Frankie Knuckles gets hold of the masters, you know its going to be a special moment in HOUSE music. If you ask me it is also one of the finest bits of remixing work he has ever put his name to. The man just seems to have a such a great ablity to remix R&B & Soul into a House like nobody else.
Originally released in 1987, “Someday” was an inspired collaboration between the raw driving house sound of Chicago legend Marshall Jefferson and the sweet, hauntingly soulful voice of CeCe Rogers. The result was the creation of a powerful political message highlighting the need for racial harmony in apartheid South Africa. The popularity of this beautiful piece of music has seen it ranked number 3 in MixMags‘s 100 Greatest Singles of All Time.
The single “Blind” featuring guest Antony Hegarty (lead vocalist in Antony & The Johnsons) was released on 3 March 2008, and the debut album (produced by Butler and Tim Goldsworthy) was released on 10 March.Their self-titled album has been critically well-received and charted in the top 40 in several countries. The touring group in 2008 featured guest vocalist Nomi Ruiz.
