about

“That’s the whole message in all the sounds! Man, you can turn your TV on today and watch a war just happening! Right before your eyes! Things are really moving fast! This is … I don’t know what we are going to do… Too much lack of understanding… it’s unbelievable!”
Lonnie Liston Smith

These words spoken by Lonnie Liston Smith to describe the inspiration for the lyrics to his timeless classic Expansions are sadly as true today as when he spoke them all those years ago. It was this notion that prompted Japan’s UnitedSoul (DJ Uchikawa and Soul-T) to revisit this message, reinterpreting the song as a deep soulful house cut complete with live instrumentation for a new generation.

They also enlisted a stellar cast to provide the remixes.

Osunlade brings the funk out in his extended “Yoruba Soul Mix”, while Ian Friday was so inspired that he decided to make his own cover version with the “Libation Remake” featuring Byron J Moore on vocals.

Completing the package is Chi-Town’s very own Excursions crew (Cordell Johnson & Skorpeze) taking it to the club with their “Excursions Go Deep Remix”.

They also provide a digital bonus with the "Excursions Break Of Dawn Mix".
