Ella Fitzgerald - Blue Skies (Maya Jane Coles remix)
This is incredible. I haven't heard much from Maya Jane Coles lately that has really wow-ed me, but hearing this remix of Ella Fitzgerald has reminded me of how talented she is. I found the contrast of retro and modern produces something that is really memorable and stands in contrast to the incessant sampling of more contemporary R&B samples i.e. Brandy, Cassie, Aaligh etc, in a lot of house tracks at the moment. Beautiful!
