George Duke Tzina (King Britt Scuba Mix)

I have been a George Duke fan since like ’75. My dad had the Feel album and the cover was what got me at first. A very cosmic looking scene of crystals and lakes. Then the music itself was very galactic. On the back was this haunting figure behind the keyboards, The Duke! He looked like some cat controlling a starship.

So I listened to this forever (still today). Songs like “Feel” and “Rshid,” but my favorite was “Tzana,” a very trippy classical number, which was from an opera.

Luckily “Tzina” was very sparse in instrumentation. They didn’t have the stems but Sven from MPS sent me a better copy which turned out to be a completely different version. This is the version I used for this remix.

About 6 months after the remix was done, I got a call from George Duke, saying how he liked it and how on earth did I pick that tune!

Rest in Power my brother…..

soon
