Review

Whatpeopleplay reels in another biggie for their second release: “western starland” is surely one of the signature tunes by tech-funk luminary John Tejada and his long-time collaborateur Ariane Leviste. Originally released in 2001 on his Palette imprint this is one of those tunes that never leave the crates of many DJs and if you have been dancing anywhere in the last 10 years you’ll surely instantly recognize those synthetic string chords. Tejada himself gets busy here and revamps the also included original with a brand-new 2011 mix: the original signature elements are right there from the start but fused with a beefy house beat, a new bassline, a hissing soul organ and lifted to the next plateau by thundering staccato chords in a classic detroit style. The flip holds the glorious original plus the not any less brilliant John Tejada VIP mix from 2003.
