Favorite Tracks: StooShe – Black Heart
I recently got a DJ promo of a great new track from the UK R&B girl group StooShe, called Black Heart. The fantastic remix from Bimbo Jones (one of several remixes) gives the otherwise retro sounding track some seriously great energy, and while it sucks the retro right out of it, it doesn’t complete obliterate the song’s character.
The original version, viewable with the official video on YouTube, was a bit of a surprise when I heard it—after falling in love with the the dance mix. I’m not sure I’ve heard someone attempt to revive the classic 60s sound quite so unabashedly. (Embedded below.)
In any case, this is another you can expect to hear regularly in my mixshows for awhile to come.
Regrettably, the girls’ label—Warner—hasn’t seen fit to release the track in the United States. What a shame.
