”I Need Your Love” was written by Sargent Tucker & Martin Riley (aka) Bud E’ Bluz. In it’s original version, the song has started to build in the UK with modern Soul fans. I heard the song and my first thought was wow!! if only Drizabone could remix this gem, then it could be one of the Soul tracks of the year, Billy Freeman of Drizabone is currently working hard, completing his new Drizabone album which looks likely to be set for release next year.
So to this the day, it’s been two years since I asked Billy to remix SouLutions rough demo of Listen, which reached #1 in many UK Soul Charts, one year since, Ola Onabules Soul Town, so i thought it must be time for the UK Modern Soul maestro to hit the mixing desk once again.
Drizabone reached the UK top 30 twice with, Real Love firstly in 1991 when it reached, #16 and then again with a remix in 1995 when it climbed to #24. Drizabone have had national remix hits with, Lisa Stansfield, Mary J Blidge & Shanice ”I Love Your Smile” Drizabone remixed changed the songs fortune in 1992 to reach #2 UK & #1 in America where the song in it’s original mix had staled. I’m sure you’ll agree this is one of this years most outstanding Soul cuts and we hope you can feature this song in your playlists over the Summer. Lets bring on the heat with, I need Your Love.
