Marlena Shaw Woman Of The Ghetto Remixes Cold BustedNo, I didn’t think it needed doing, either – some classic tracks just oughta be left alone! So I’m somewhat surprised – but very happy – to report that Azerbaijani producer Alizadeh has absolutely knocked this one out of the park.

In his hands, Woman Of The Ghetto becomes a lazy, laidback jazzual affair, all dusty beats, squalling sax, fluttering Moog, wukka-wukking geetar and of course that vocal, or at least the “I want you to get together” bit of it. And as I said, it’s a stone cold bomb, the combination of Marlena’s voice, headnoddin’ trip-hop beats and just a touch of jazz-funk noodle proving irresistible.

If you want to be a bit more subtle with it, there’s also an accompanying instrumental.
