Red Astaire- Marvin's Groove

I've posted this track before in the past, but I really feel like I should articulate how special of a remix it is. With a few subtle touches, Red Astaire ups the melancholia quotient in Gaye's original and coaxes much more emotion out of the vocal by virtue of his arrangement. By adding simple keys, gentle, pulsing drum programming, and percussion constructed from clips and hisses of static, the result is incredibly intimate and stirring enough to make the hairs stand up on your arm.
