Producers from the ATL based WERC Crew collective take a stab at recasting the sounds and feel of Chantae Cann‘s latest album, the Journey To Golden LP. What results is a assortment of tracks that maintain the sweet and uplifting aspects of Chantae‘s writing and vocal work while adding tight remix arrangements that range from low-key uprockers to blissed out and futuristic funk flashes. Standout cuts include “Da Da’n Da (DJin Re-WERC)” with its island carnival feel, “Beauty Speaks (D Mills Re-WERC)” with its fluidly funky tones, a wavy electronica take on a fan favorite with “Free Your Dreams (“WestWindz Re-WERC)”, and a soulful and spirited house-music dubplate titled “iChange (Jeremy Avalon Re-WERC)”.
Two roads intertwine to create an unexpected pathway of future sounds and hypnotic vocals. Chantae Cann’s Journey to Golden RE-WERC project is just that. For this edition of WERC Crew’s RE-WERC series, producers fused Chantae’s contemporary jazz vocals alongside a progression electronic backdrop. This uncanny pairing will come courtesy of Chantae Cann’s debut album, Journey To Golden, which dropped March 2016 and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Charts and #7 of the Jazz Billboard Charts. It’s not everyday that an exceptional Jazz vocalist teams up with a super group of extraordinary DJs and producers to construct a project.
