MUSIC: The Decoders – Respect ft. Mara Hruby & Van Hunt
by Reginald Duvivier
The Decoders are Los Angeles production trio Todd M. Simon, Itai Shapira and Adam Berg. Known as the band that helps bring the work of acts like Kelis to life, they are set to release their brand new record, “Adventures from Paradise: A Tribute To Minnie Riperton” later this year. One of the songs they tackle is “Respect”, made famous by Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin. They tackle it Rotary Connection style, along with assists from Mara Hruby and Van Hunt. In a live setting, The Decoders are 10 to 20 piece ensemble featuring LA’s top musicians and session players, and in the clip below you can see how they bring classics back to life and re imagined for the modern era. Check out the video (featuring the reel studio footage) of “Respect” below
