Vibes4YourSoul Loves Edits#21 - Gil Scott-Heron - We Almost Lost Detroit (Florian Rietze Tool)

We Almost Lost Detroit is one of my top 3 favorite songs of Gil Scott-Heron. A superb ballad from 1977 evoking the (still very topical) subject of nuclear energy's dangers.

German producer Florian Rietze does an amazing job revisiting it through a deep house angle, blending samples from the original song as well as live vocals from Gil introducing the song.

Thanks to Hannes Fischer for highlighting it through his latest excellent Lazy Afternoon Session#4 mix.

Streaming below,a s well as a splendid solo version from Gil  !
