Chaka Khan - Ain't Nobody (MikeQ Remix)

East Orange producer MikeQ's latest in a long line of remixes, transforms Chaka Khan's timeless classic "Ain't Nobody" into a break laden shuffling, dance-off. Of course it keeps its throwback feels by leaning on a fair amount of the original structure, but it also has a distinct mid to late '00s vibe. That, in combination with MikeQ's creative additions, make it a force to be reckoned with. I picture an absolutely packed club, still moving to every note, despite the sun's immanent rise. At worst, it's a powerful DJ tool. At best, it's a five star, must-start-my-day-with-it, masterpiece. For most of you, it'll be somewhere in the middle, which is a venerable slice of throwback feels, that successfully repositions a classic.  MikeQ has made the track available absolutely free, so grab it while you can.
