Skyy (Can You Feel Me) – DJ Day*

He recreated one of my favorite tracks of all time…

From DJ Day:

This is all Cosmo Baker‘s fault. I mean, I’ve always loved Saadiq going back to the TTT days, but hearing Cosmo’s mix of his work really put it all in perspective. Raphael Saadiq is a genius. Period. Just listen and you’ll see. From Tony! Toni! Tone! & Stevie Wonder to Q-Tip & DJ Quik, he is just that dude.

So, without jumping further on his nuts…fast forward a couple days later and I’m driving around town bumping this CD. “Still Ray” came on and stayed on and that’s when I knew I had to re-do it (now I know how Dre must’ve felt).
I came home and listened to it, figured out the piano part and played everything else from there. Once I was finished I called my man Miles Bonny to lay down vocals and trumpet like only he can and here it is, free for you.

This was going to (and still might) come out on vinyl with another Saadiq cover I did that’s an instrumental. I’ll keep you all posted and I might just post it on the strength*.
