UK house producer Eden Prince re-imagines Siedah Garrett’s 1985 classic ‘Do You Want It Right Now’, giving it a fresh dance edge while paying homage to the original. The 2021 edit highlights Siedah Garrett’s distinct and powerful vocals, while Eden Prince reworks the bassline and adds the energetic house flair he is best known for.
Eden Prince explains his focus for the remix, “’Do You Want It Right Now’ is such a classic and I was honoured to have the opportunity to add my touch to it. My aim was to bring a new energy to the original and present Siedah’s fantastic vocal from a fresh new angle. The result is a feel good house track that I can’t wait to play out as soon as clubs re-open!”
Siedah adds “The single ‘Do You Want It Right Now’ has always held a special place for me. It was the very first song that I recorded for Quincy Jones after he signed me as an artist to his record label. My dance music fans have kept the Jellybean remix alive for years, and now, I couldn’t be happier that Tinted Records is breathing new life into it with this incredible Eden Prince collaboration. When I finally get back to performing live in the clubs, it’s gonna be hard to choose which remix version I use for my backing track! Maybe a mash-up?”
