Damn! What Track Was Dat?

So if you were at the Movement festival this year you would have seen Dennis Ferrer and Kevin Saunderson drop a hot ass jackin House track with an old swing sample. With the age of Beatport and Youtube, it was actually much easier to figure out who made it and how to get it. I remember asking DJ’s back in the day hopeing they would reveal their secret, or let me get a peep of the vinyl cover. With the internet swallowing everything up instantly, it makes it much easier to find out what the “Big” DJs are playing. Hopefully this tune won’t get played out as soon as it hits the streets. Anyways, the artist is Gramaphonedzie and the track is “Why Don’t You”. It is released on Guesthouse Music and available for download on Beatport. This particular track was sampled from Peggy Lee’s 1942 release, “Get Me Some Money Too”. The artist has many jackin swing like tracks available that are also way hot. The swing sampled theme is nothing new to house, and I could have sworn this track was made by Mike Dixon but the hottness can not be denied. It must be from Chicago or something right? Nope, try Belgrade, Serbia.
