Eddy & The Soulband – Theme From Shaft (German 12″)

Love this ’84 cover of “Shaft” from Eddie Conrad , produced by Albert Boekholt, Jacques Zwart and mixed by Ben Liebrand. It updates the shaft theme subtly (originally done by Isaac Hayes) and it is isn’t on Spotify (so no one knows it exists 😀)

The mix has certainly elements of Art Of Noise with all the cars ignitions but that slap bass! Plenty of oversampling of the brass section and that wah, wah guitar is priceless.

The extended version if for those who prefer less gimmicks.
