Let's turn back the clock to 2004 when Phuture Sole Recordings dropped the marvelous soulful jewel "Fly" by 280 West which features a breathtaking rendition of the inspirational lyrics by Diamond Temple (supported by background vocals from Kenny Bobien, Christina Temple and Felicia Temple) alongside a masterly orchestration. In 2005 superb remixes by Blaze followed (also included was a beautiful ballad version of the song performed by Felicia Temple), fast forward to 2016 and we are being blessed with the highly anticipated Joe Claussell remixes of this timeless production. Beyond the shadow of a doubt, Joe Claussell's phenomenal interpretation best described as an epic masterpiece staying true to the original yet oozing with his distinctive beloved uplifting sound will take you on a magical musical journey you wish would never end; most definitely this awesome re-imagination will send shivers down your spine...
