The Supremes - "Stop In The Name Of Love" (Yoroku Saki Remix)

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Yoroku Saki has remixed the iconic Motown classic "Stop In The Name Of Love" by The Supremes. The result is a gorgeous downtempo track from Saki that adds an unexpected contrast to the original vocal. The most interesting byproduct of the creative license taken by the producer is the way in which the subdued electric piano and intermittent bass thump force an emphasis on the lyrics of the song that is not possible with the voluminous walking bass, bells and claps of the original. What you get is a track that sounds a lot more current and emotionally weighty than it once did - Yoroku Saki breathing an unexpectedly fresh new life into an old favorite. Check it out.
