We’re proud to be launching our brand new Bandcamp page with this stunning rework by NY House Music legend Frankie Feliciano – of our first release “I Know Someone” by Mike City. We’re making this move in spirit of building our online music community and connecting directly with the fans!
In the summer of 2017, Good Vibrations Music unleashed its debut release – a rich, indulgent and groovy house workout from label founder Sean McCabe and honey-voiced soul vocalist Mike City entitled ‘I Know Someone’. Almost two years on, the song has been given a new lease of life by New York house legend Frankie Feliciano.
Feliciano has long been renowned for the quality of his ‘Ricanstruction’ remixes, named in tribute to his Latin heritage and the Ricanstruction Records imprint he established in 1997. Fittingly, his suite of fresh remixes begins with a fresh ‘Ricanstruction Vocal’ of ‘I Know Someone’, where Mike City’s silky smooth vocal, toasty keys and mazy synthesiszer solos stretch out above a distinctively swung Latin house rhythm and a jaunty synth bassline. This trademark soulful vocal version is accompanied by ‘Ricanstruction’ Instrumental and Radio Edit mixes, as well as a mesmerizing ‘Beatapella’ in which Mike City’s breathtaking vocal takes pride of place above Feliciano’s toughened-up Latin house beats.
Feliciano isn’t finished there, though. He also offers up a chunky ‘Classic Vocal’ that sees him lay the emotion-rich vocal and his own twinkling keys, colourful synthesizer lines and headline-grabbing bassline over a throwback house beat. It’s one that should please the old school house heads. Throw in a ‘Classic Instrumental’ and a spacey, beat-free ‘KeyApella’ for the DJs, and you have a fittingly impressive collection of reworks from one of American house music’s most distinctive producers.
