Legendary rapper, hip-hop producer, and founding member of the influential collective D.I.T.C. crew, Lord Finesse is back with his most ambitious project to date: Motown State of Mind, a set of handpicked Motown classics remixed and re-imagined. The inspired new remix album will be available to stream on June 26 via Motown/UMe and the remix of Marvin Gaye’s I Want You is available to stream now. In true DJ style, the remixes will also be released as a 45 RPM box set on July 24 containing seven 7-inch records on black vinyl featuring the remixed version on Side A and the classic original on Side B. In support of the release, there will be digital activations throughout June including livestreams and IG live takeovers from Motown’s various handles.
Curated and arranged for the new generation, going back to the original masters/sources, the remixes include chart toppers such as Michael Jackson’s I Wanna Be Where You Are and DeBarge’s I Like It alongside deep cuts from Motown’s catalog like Sisters Love’s Now Is The Time.
