MeLo-X Reworks Maxwell With Amazing Results

Melo-X-Cover.jpgI have kept pretty quiet when it’s come to my opinion on Maxwell‘s latest album. Voicing one’s disdain is never a good look amongst the throngs of those who are in complete rapturous ecstasy, now is it? That being said, this remix EP by MeLo-X, his attempt to rework Maxwell’s BLACKsummers’night, seems tailor-made for me and those who may feel similarly about Maxy’s latest effort. On this EP, yes, Maxwell’s voice has been chopped up to a staccato as well as the beat, so these reworks are no longer strictly red light special-type of grooves as Maxwell intended. But these tracks are proof that touching something that until now was pretty much deemed untouchable is possible. Below are my favorites. Do not sleep on this one. [H/T: OKP]
