I, Ced - Call Me Up XL Middleton Remix

Call Me Up XL Middleton Remix
7" | 2021 | EU | Original (Mofunk)

Release:2021 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
I, Ced’s MoFunk Records debut Interpretations was a daring departure from the LA label’s trademark modern funk sound. Now, label head XL Middleton steps behind the boards to rework a favorite cut from the album, “Call Me Up,” giving it a vintage repackaging that MoFunksters will find more sonically recognizable, via dusty boogie drums and glimmering electric piano keys. The icing on the cake is the warm analog synth bassline and lead combo plus additional bass plucks courtesy of Josh Solomon, better known to the online world as @thecitypopbassist. The result is a tune you can step to, or perhaps roller skate to, should the opportunity present itself. The remix has been given the vinyl treatment, with a limited 7” pressing of just 250 copies. Included on the flip is Ced’s remix of “Reflect (I Thought It Was You)” feat. Moniquea, a bouncy rework with a downtempo house rhythm.

I, Ced has been something of a “best kept secret” among creators and aficionados of modern soul music. His wide array of skills ranges from production to vocals, keys, and studio mixing. His talents have found him in the company of many heralded contemporaries, including Jean Grae & Quelle Chris, Coultrain, Jimetta Rose, & Dam Funk. After having lent his talents to so many other luminaries in the underground music scene, Ced is now poised to make an impact with his own material, via his next project on Los Angeles-based MoFunk Records. As a label best known for synth-heavy west coast funk tunes, the partnership with I, Ced marks a daring expansion of the MoFunk sound.

I, Ced unites his distinctive “future soul” aesthetic with XL Middleton’s left side bump on the remix to “Percu,” first heard on Ced’s “What Are We Looking For?” album. It’s a stellar marriage of sharp synth bass, warm Moog-style leads and shimmering Rhodes chords with Ced’s hypnotic vocal chants and thickly-layered percussion sections, from which the track clearly derives its name. The remix is further heightened with an emotive vocal performance from fellow MoFunk artist Moniquea. As a bonus, the original version of “Percu” is included on the b-side, marking the first time any of the tracks from “What Are We Looking For?” have been pressed to wax.

With a limited run of 300 7”s this release is sure to move quickly, carrying broad appeal for followers of the modern funk movement or contemporary soul alike.

As a label best known for synth-heavy west coast funk tunes, the partnership with I, Ced marks a daring expansion of the MoFunk sound. After debuting on MoFunk with an XL Middleton remix of his “Percu” single, Ced is now prepared to drop his first full-length with the label, Interpretations.

Ced’s songs are cinematic, expansive, and lush, a world removed from simple loops with vocals on top. Every instrument played, every vocal inflected, every chord change implemented, is treated more like a singular brush stroke on a painting you have to step back and take in as a whole to appreciate. In a musical landscape driven by catchy singles and viral promotion, it’s become exceedingly rare to find an album which plays out as an experience. Interpretations is exactly this. If Ced’s inspirations were colors on a painter’s palette, you might see dabs of Jam & Lewis, or Prince, or maybe Shuggie Otis, or even Sun Ra. But Ced does far more than pay tribute to his influences by intimating their unique styles. Indeed, he pays them the highest tribute of all by working them into his own sound - his Interpretation."
