Picks of the Week
Patrick Green featuring Nimba Burr "Qua tanka" (Sofitone Records CD Promo)
It took some time for this beauty to finally see the light of the day (Spirit of House did review the rough original back in Mach 2005), but it definitely has been worth the wait. Patrick Green teams up with Liberian diva Nimba Burr for the powerful yet soulful "Qua tanka" that is on an afro-house vibe featuring a lovely orchestration including an outstanding saxophone solo, lovely guitar and wicked organ ride, with Nimba Burr providing a passionate vocal performance. Beside the main 'Grass Roots Mix', there is the 'Organ Ride' which puts the organ center stage and a dub that slightly smoothes things down for a deeper take perfect for late night play. Mr. Cubanix goes even deeper, turning out a wicked reworking featuring catchy synths that make this a winner. Completing the package is very useful acapella version.
