Paul Johnson – Me And My Queen [Nite Life Collective]

The triumphant celebration A3 jam off an underrated 1998 Paul Johnson “We Can Make The World Spin” album. Me And My Queen puts Johnson’s sampling sixth sense on display. Some of the more well-known hits from the Chicago house legend carry a tougher, speedier and sometimes raunchier sampling spirit, but you get the sense he practiced patience piecing this track together – borrowing the string-heavy clip from It’s Good For The Soul by The Salsoul Orchestra. Intricate, complex and dramatic much like the bookend of a night out partying or the lived experience between you and your queen perhaps. It’s my favorite cut from the album whether enjoying at home or mixing in mid-set and worth picking up on Discogs to dive into a full listen.
