“I WON’T LET YOU DOWN”
Knee Deep USA
Soulful and thrusting grooves are the trademark of the infamous Knee Deep boys. Basti and Toddie, both in production and DJ-ing, are never too sophisticated or stuffed with loops, yet have managed to combine soul, funk and Latin into a sound that is downright charming. “I Won’t Let You Down” includes three mixes: the classic “KD Club Mix,” which comes with a slamming’ bass line, guitars and classic big drums. On the flip are two mixes: “KD Reprise” and “Bird’s JFunk Dub,” which has long guitar filters, brass and tight arrangements. Out now!
