Erykah Badu – 20 Feet Tall (Yoruba Soul Remix)

After several months of desperate searching I finally tracked down a copy of Osunlade’s Yoruba Soul remix of Erykah Badu’s 20 Feet Tall.  Doesn’t look like this is gonna see an official release (or even a white label), and that’s a shame as Osunlade really worked his magic here.  Through a subtle and tasteful arrangement, the maestro has transformed Badu’s meditative, almost dirge-like original into an uplifting dancefloor burner.  Brilliant.

Pick up the original on Badu’s latest LP, the fantastic New Amerykah, Pt. 2: Return of the Ankh. Buy here.
