FINESE: Brandy – I Wanna Be Down (Remix)

Get ready to groove along to this smooth remix of a classic 90s hit, which also happens to be one of my all-time favourite songs. Fact. Hailing from Brazil, Alisson Fluente aka FINESE adds some subtle flavours of neosoul to the original with some stunning results. Try and get this remix outta your head! You have been warned.. :)

FINESE_Brandy - I Wanna Be Down (Remix)

Let’s take a trip down memory lane when R&B was at its peak – the 90s.

1994 in particular, when one of my favourite songs (and still is to this day!) was on high rotation on the radio. Okay, so I was barely 8 years old when this song came out, but I remember the video clip and I remember how catchy that hook was – obviously not knowing what the lyrics meant though. 😛

Compared to what Ta-ku created for his first ReϟTwerk EP when he sampled this same song, this remix from Finese definitely gives the 90s classic a smooth and sexy makeover.

Without taking away too much from the original, this is a refreshing, subtle and laid-back release from the up-and-coming Brazilian beat-maker.
