The "Last Night Changed It All" EP covers, and reimagines the classic B-boy and Hip-Hop classic originally made famous by Esther Williams and sampled by Hip-Hop notables such as 2Pac, DJ Shadow, Public Enemy and many more. The Love Loungers lovingly recreate the song with a heavy emphasis on rhythm and percussion adding an updated soul and funk feel. Anyone who is familiar with the original version will find this to be a welcome twist and a sureshot crate staple.
The rest of the EP finds lead singer Allison Malone working alongside producers Roane Namuh (from OK Hand Signal and Cloudshine fame), Dundiggy, and Matt Nelkin (from Boombap Riddims fame) to beautifully remix and reimagine the song into different genres. Dundiggy and Matt Nelkin join forces for a modern Hip-Hop and R&B take that maintains the original’s melody and song structure. Roane Namuh on the other hand gives the whole composition a complete makeover with a Nu-Disco groove that fits around the lyrics perfectly and will be an undeniable force on any dance floor. And lastly, Dundiggy rounds things out with a slow House & Dub version that adds some thick synths and heavy kicks to anchor the Dubbed out vocals.
The “Last Night Changed It All” EP was truly a labor of love between The Love Loungers and the project’s producers and is aimed strictly at music lovers with a passion for the past and an eye towards the future.
