Italian producers I-Robots has remade the classic 'Respect' and had it remixed by deep house artist Atjazz and Alex Neri from Planet Funk on this new package on his Opilec Music label. The track was written by Otis Redding in 1965 and became a global hit and signature song for Aretha Franklin in 1967. But in 1988, Adeva changed its key and flipped it into a garage house track that now gets remade by I-Robots, featuring Kathy Brown with The It/Jungle Wonz man and Chicago’s Harry Dennis also appearing.
Their Paradise Garage inspired version opens up and is eight minutes of elastic disco house. The bassline is tough, the vocals have attitude, and the synth work brings real light.
Alex Neri is from Planet Funk and Kamasutra and is head of Tenax Recordings and Wildflower Records in his native Italy. His take is awash with melodies and synths that aim to lift you off your feet.
Atjazz is a longtime Afro and jazzy deep house musician from the UK with his own back catalogue. His remix is late night and deep, with woozy chords and a vocal ready for those intimate moments. He also serves up a dub, instrumental and acapella.
