DJ Funk - Three Fine Hoes (Sinjin Hawke Remix)
Although grandiose horn arrangements and orchestral stings might seem at odds with the relatively no-frills aesthetic of ghetto house, Sinjin Hawke has melded them in manner that is engrossing and altogether thrilling. Hawke's remix of DJ Funk's 'Three Fine Hoes' is in part notable for its incessant climbing; about two thirds of its play time are swells and rises, finally giving way to a brief segment that only vaguely resembles the straightforward trappings of its original. Sinjin's project seems to be an effort to maximize the impact of ghetto house's trademark minimalism by juxtaposing it with an exceptionally extravagant production. It's pretty damn safe to say he did a great job of it. Forthcoming on France's Booty Call Records.
