The Temptations – Ain’t Too Proud To Beg (Pinot Filter Vintage Re-Love)
This was dropped a few months ago on that lovely site AOR Disco. Looking at its history I can’t quite work out who did what and which version you’re listening to here:
It looks like young London-based producers Pinot + Grigio did a re-edit of the Tempations’ classic and Ben Zaven Crane of Mojo Filter then worked soem of his magic on it, resulting in the finished article you see above. This is an absolute stonker of a track. Despite the David Guetta-esque pumping kicks and grinding electro-bass, David Ruffin’s rasping, soulful vocals come through riding over the top and meshing in beatifully.
This is a dancefloor banger, pure and simple. Forget your cold, minimal techno beats and let yourself go to this.
