Sade "Give It Up (Vin Sol & Matrixxman Edit)"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The easy flow and smooth voice of Sade are certainly fitting for Valentine's Day, and thanks to West Coast producers Vin Sol and Matrixxman, Sade's classic "Give It Up" has now been rendered into a steamy house jam. Pushing a helping of extra low-end and filling out the original's beat with a new kit, the pair of beatsmiths elongate Sade's tune into a nine-minute expedition. The results are soothing, a bit romantic, and graciously jazz-touched, making the tune perfect for Valentine's dance parties of two or more. And of course, if you feel like taking a dive into Sade edits passed, might we suggest dropping Kenny Larkin's and Stacey Pullen's "Illegal Remixes" of "Surrender Your Love"—which date back to '95—into your Valentine's mix, if you can find them that is.
