Lucky Paul "I'd Rather Go Blind (Etta James Rework)"

Before he releases his "Elephant Island" single via somethinksounds, New Zealand-based producer Lucky Paul (whom you may remember from this or this) has delivered a timely rework of Etta James' classic "I'd Rather Go Blind." This tribute of a production preserves much of the song's original structure, keeping the swaying pace nice and slow, but toys with its overall arrangement—adding in bits of synthesizer, subtle bass tones, and beefy percussion before dipping the whole tune into a lush reverb chamber. Look for Lucky Paul's new 12", which also features remixes from the likes of Midland and Ossie, on Feburary 13.
