Jimmy Edgar Gives Away Free Edit Of Dj Spookie’s ‘Reload’
Jimmy Edgar has uploaded a thumping edit of DJ Spookie's mid 90s ghetto tech jam Reload. Feeling in a festive mood, he's gone and given it away for free via his Bandcamp. Reload first surfaced on the What EP, a 5 tracker Spookie released on Green Velvet's Relief Records back in '96. Edgar had the following to say about his version –
"This track has been one of my personal joys since I first heard it in 1998. I decided to make an edit, mostly because all of my vinyl copies are in such poor condition. Coincidentally, Traxman introduced me to Emmanuel Pippen (aka DJ Spookie) just a day before this free release. After speaking, I was surprised to find out he produced another top record of mine, Emanuel "Me & 909" on Trax Records."
"Emmanuel gave his blessing with the edit, which is important to me because I wanted to keep the integrity of the track while also adding my personal flavor to it. Thank you for sharing this moment with me."
