D'Angelo's "Spanish Joint" Gets An Uptempo Remix That Leaves It Ripe For The Dancefloor From DJ Kero One

D’Angelo‘s “Spanish Joint” gets an uptempo remix from DJ Kero One that preserves the beautiful chords and leaves the Voodoo standout totally ripe for the dancefloor. The remix is dense with hi-hats, synths and plenty of bounce. The real gem of the production emerges around the 2:30 mark, when a break allows Kero One to flex a bit with an off-center chop of vocals and chords that round things out quite nicely. Kero One delivered this track with a nice little note explaining the method and madness behind the infectious rework:

I’ve always been a fan of the track Spanish Joint by D’Angelo but I felt like the original is fairly mellow and couldn’t find a way to fit it or any D’Angelo for that matter, into my DJ sets. So i remixed this acoustic “Spanish Joint” with a more vibey dance feel so I can play out. Added new synths, keys, drums, bass, and sound efx.

    Man i’ve been listenen to this song since 2000. And it only keeps getting better. Just keep recycling this shit man it never gets OLD.

    30 years from now I pray that Hip Hop will be alive and well and a new crop of Preemo’s, Pete Rocks, and Dillas will be pulling this album from the crate. Heroes get remembered but The Funk never dies.

    I prefer the original. This is kind of an obvious way to play this song

  • ZarZ

    I think Kero prefers the original as well, but I think this is a cool little remix regardless, & I will happily add to my collection. It’s been well over 10 years, & no one else has done a dance version of this killer track as good as this. Thanks for the free track Kero1. Good work.
