DJ Spinna Adds Some More Stardust On Darkhouse Family’s “Just So You Know” Remix [Premiere]
Earl Jeffers and Don Leisure select their friend DJ Spinna to curate a remix of “Just So You Know” from their remix project An Extra Offering.
Darkhouse Family, the partner-in-beats duo of Earl Jeffers and Don Leisure, team up again for An Extra Offering. The five-track EP takes the energy and effort from the group’s debut album The Offering, which dropped late last year on First Word and allow friends and legends (DJ Spinna and Kaidi Tatham) to curate remixes for your head top.
The Brooklyn cut-creator DJ Spinna has not one, but two tracks on An Extra Offering. His Galactic Soul rub of “Another World” flips the original into a deep soulful 4/4 house cut, featuring the lush vocals of Esther and Charlotte Church on backing vocals. Also included is Spinna’s Galactic Funk take on “Just So You Know,” which is making its premiere here on Okayplayer and features Vanity Jay on vocals.
If you missed out #LunchtimeDJ set with DJ Spinna then surely do not make the same mistake twice by not pressing play on this song.
A mid-tempo bop like the original, but Spinna adds that season and flavor that makes the kicks bigger, the snares snappier, and the synths make the audio meal complete. Seriously wavy and a groove all on its own, “Just So You Know” is a gumbo of riddims. Those who are not shy should seriously keep this in your rotation.

An Extra Offering illustrates just why Darkhouse Family is a name you should add to your memory banks if you haven’t already. Their range of influences and sounds, as curators of sound and as music makers themselves, make it apparent that you’ll be on an intergalactic ride for a very long (and enjoyable) time.
There will also be two previously unreleased bonus instrumental tracks from The Offering sessions that will be available exclusively on the Bandcamp digital version. “Synergy (Rebirth)” and the instrumental version of the album track “Another World” are those songs.
