Behind the Scenes: Future is Mine

  • Behind the Scenes: Future is Mine
    Posted by Dana on October 06, 2015

    "Years ago, DJ Cassidy began a mission to redefine modern dance music, aligning studio stars of the late ’70s and early ’80s with their faithful 21st century decedents on his anxiously-awaited breakout debut Paradise Royale. We’ve already been gifted three stellar cuts ahead of the release in the super-smooth uptempo ballad “Calling All Hearts,” the sweeping dance floor boogie of his R Kelly-assisted “Make The World Go Round” and the full-swing sophisto-funk of “Future Is Mine” featuring electric duo Chromeo and DMV bomber Wale.

    But with all the feel-good vibes swirling, it can be easy to glance over just how historic these records are, not merely in the seamless channeling of pristinely clean two-stepping fodder, but in the talent rallied to make this thing float. Luckily for you and I and the boogie-loving world, we’ve been granted the opportunity to show you just how this breezy r&b brilliance of “Future Is Mine” came together. In an exclusive clip from the studio, we find Cassidy, Dave-1 and P-Thugg playing maestro, recruiting legends like Patrice Rushen (“Forget Me Nots”,) prolific drummer John “JR” Robinson (of Rufus, Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones fame) bassist Bobby Watson, Funk Brothers alum Wah Wah Watson and legendary arranger Jerry Hey for their all-star roster. A true-school-meets-old-school cast of the highest degree." - Read more on OkayPlayer
