Throwback: Moodymann-The Day We Lost The Soul

MoodymannTheDayWeLostTheSoul

Moodymann’s “The Day We Lost The Soul” is a tribute to Marvin Gaye and the effect his passing made on soul music. The song begins with a sample of a newscast announcing Gaye’s death on April 1, 1984, after being fatally shot by his father. Gaye’s falsetto is sampled in the background of nighttime keys and a ritualistic house beat to rival any drug. Moodymann’s acknowledgement of Gaye’s genius is not mournful but is instead a solid, celebratory dance.”The Day We Lost The Soul” is one of Moodymann’s several deep house essentials to come out on his KDJ Records in the ’90’s. On February 19th, K7 will release Moodymann’s DJ-Kicks mix session.
