Wale’s “Attention Deficit” drops in stores November 10th. As good, bad or indifferent as we all are about DC’s standout international ambassador, we can all agree on one thing. When done correctly, any acapella taken on a journey into the land of breaks, horns and 125-plus BPMs usually comes out sounding pretty fantastic. Thus and so is the case regarding Baltimore club legend DJ Jonny Blaze’s remix of Wale’s second single from the soon to drop debut, “Good Girls.” Wale’s been taken into the Bmore realm before with Scottie B on “Elevators,” however, this remix just continues a pattern and will likely be an add to most any DJ’s Serato crates for the fall and winter. Blaze is famous in club music circles for his “Spongebob Squarepants Theme” remix, as well as the Eddie Murphy sampling “Ice Cream Man,” and generally for having a 20+ year career and being influential in the development and progression of the Baltimore club sound. This isn’t a remix that reinvents the wheel. It isn’t a remix that revolutionizes and reinvigorates the song. It’s quite simply, a Baltimore club legend creating a remix that doesn’t embarrass the legacy and sanctity of the sound. Classic material from a classic creator. Enjoy!
