Kings of Tomorrow
- I Want You (For Myself) (Sharam's Playa Remix)
Yoshitoshi Recordings | 29.02.2016
Sharam has picked an old favourite from the back catalogue of his well renowned and received label Yoshitoshi Recordings. Re-Releasing Kings of Tomorrow’s ‘I Want You’. The two part EP includes a remastered version of the original and a 2016 update from the label owner Sharam himself.
Sharam’s influence in the house music scene over the years, has given him the knowledge and skills to bring Kings of Tomorrow’s ‘I Want You’ into a new dawn, keeping the timeless spirit within the original. Controlling the energy in the deep dark elements released in the remix, and keeping Julie McKnight’s incredible vocals untouched. Allowing I Want You (For Myself) to keep its emotional power from the original.
“You know when a song gets in your head and it won’t let go? Sometimes to the point of annoyance? Well, thats what happened to me the first day i heard KOT’s “I Want You For Myself,” except it never got annoying. It got better with time. It stayed sweet and powerful and inspiring — year after year after year. 18 years running i still consider it one of the best Yoshitoshi signings and a true house classic. So when we decided to take on this behemoth project of updating theYoshitoshi Classics, as part of celebrating 20 years of releasing music that goes beyond categorization, I always knew which one i wanted to reinterpret. It was always Sandy Rivera & Jay ‘Sinister’ Saelee’s (Kings Of Tomorrow) ‘I Want You (For Myself)’ featuring the mesmerizing vocals of Julie McKnight. A seminal record that defined soulful house music for years to come, I hope I’ve done it justice 18 years later.”
