Ramsey Lewis - Do What You Wanna (Mr Scruff Soul Party Mix)
on Verve Remixed 2
(CD/2xLP) Verve/Universal, 2003.08

Lorsque Verve (à New York) apprirent que Mr Scruff était en ville, ils se hatèrent d'aller lui jeter le grappin dessus pour lui demander de remixer un track de leur vaste catalogue. Plutôt indécis face au choix trop large, Mr Scruff, en bon gros fan de Ramsey Lewis, opta pour un de ses albums favoris, "Inside Ramsey Lewis" (en fait une compilation sortie en 72 en double vinyle), et le track "Do What you Wanna", trop court à son goût. En effet à l'origine le track fade au bout de 3-4 minutes, frustrant ainsi l'auditeur affamé de jams jazz-funk. Surtout qu'à priori ça devait être une belle fête dans le studio de Ramsey Lewis, à l'époque, vu le bordel ambient qu'on entend derrière. Mr Scruff a conservé cette ambiance en y ajoutant quelques épices d'aujourd'hui, façon Moodymann au final. Bien évidemment il ajouté quelques beats un peu plus actuels, tout en joyeusement allongeant le track, même s'il a largement conservé l'esprit du morceau d'origine.
