This Soul Clap release became an instant favorite the first time I heard.
An edit of Jamie Foxx’s 2006 R&B summer smash, reinterpreted & extended to best suit the dance floor – added more brown sugar, I suppose. (A wave within the movement of soul/r&b –> house edits, a topic that I will eventually address.)
And just for kicks, here’s arguably my favorite of all Ugly Edits by the one-and-only Theo Parrish. Not completely incongruous as this is also an edit of an R&B song by Anthony Hamilton, but stripped down raw. Just beautiful really.
