The Right Way – Kenny Summit/Reelsoul

The Right Way

The first time I heard this track was at 7am, and I’ll be honest, there aren’t many tunes that will have me up and dancing around the lounge at that time, but this one is something truly special.

It is a remix of the 1990 track ‘Rub you the right way’ by Johnny Gill which made it to number one in the US R&B chart. If you think it sounds a bit ‘Bobby Brown’ then you’re not wrong – Johnny and Bobby were both part of the group New Edition (although they were originally not part of the group at the same time, in recent years they have worked together). New Edition had hits in the 80’s with ‘Candy Girl’, ‘Cool it Now’ and ‘Mr Telephone Man’.

Kenny Summit is from New Jersey and heads up the Good For You record label. He has been a DJ for over 20 years and has worked with Eric Kupper, Scott Wozniak and Frankie Knuckles to name just a few and his international reputation as a class producer keeps on growing. William ‘Reelsoul’ Rodriguez had his first DJ gig at the age of 11 and has established a stellar reputation as a DJ/producer having worked with the likes of Mr V, Groove Junkies, Sterling Ensemble and DJ Spinna. I know that if a track has Reelsoul’s name on it, then it is going to be a track that I want for my collection – I have been quoted as saying that Will Reelsoul makes the bestest, bounciest, funkiest, jackin, most bum-wiggling remixes.

The production on this track has brought it bang up to date, and there’s no mistaking the Reelsoul bass line, coupled with Kenny Summit’s magic touches. I haven’t stopped dancing yet – and this remix is already in the top ten of the Traxsource chart – wow – what a banger.

Kerrie-Anne is an accomplished vocalist and songwriter from London with an impressive 4 octave range. She began singing in church as a young child and has grown from strength to strength, specialising in jazz, gospel and soul, and has made many high profile performances.

‘Believe’ is an inspirational pure gospel tune coupled with a nice easy soulful production style, warm gospel keyboards and a dance bass line making this a versatile track which will suit your car stereo or your DJ set equally well.

Kerrie-Anne performs ‘Keep on Lovin Me’ with an effortless elegance, conveying the essence of deep unconditional love throughout the song.

The Circle of Funk remix has a bouncy bass line with captivating key and percussion sounds that give a soulful yet deep tone to their exquisite house blend.

The Wipe the Needle remix has a Latin feel with warm organ sounds and sexy percussion that makes this mix the star of the bunch.

The Gianni Junior remix has a clear techno vibe while Schooly’s Soulboy mix adds a gorgeous slower tempo piano and brass based vibe that will be a winner for the classic soul fans.
