Lee Fields & The Expressions - "Just Can't Win" (Marco Polo Remix)
Lee Fields & The Expressions get the remix treatment with a boom-bap inflected take on their Emma Jean LP standout “Just Can’t Win” from Marco Polo. The track is a percussive beast with an inherent warmth that plays up Fields’ gritty soul vocal and the burnt sugar of the blues guitar groove. The track follows the June release of the album, which has been the recipient of plenty of press as Fields & The Expressions continue to storm stages with their tidal wave of a live show. The combination of Lee Fields and Marco Polo was something of an experiment for Truth & Soul Records and they seem totally delighted – as they should be – at the killer end result:
Truth & Soul is proud to present the Marco Polo Remix of Lee Fields & The Expressions “Just Can’t Win”.
Marco brought his signature slamming drums to the table balanced out by the smooth keys and the raspy delivery of the man himself, Mr Lee Fields. Marco Polo has done production for the who’s who of Hip Hop music including Pharoahe Monch, Masta Ace, M.O.P., and Large Professor to name a few. We were really excited to see what he would do with Lee’s tune and to put it lightly we are not surprised.
