AnnieB's Detour: Keedz

There’s this track that’s been floating around the blogosphere and I guess it’s been on heavy rotation somewhere in Europe. Anyway, the reason behind the latest hype appears to be because Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E” comes to mind. People have been speculating that it’s Justice under a different alias, or that it is Keedz but mixed by Justice. The tracks are rather similar, so there’s no real breakthrough or anything.

In the end, it’s really just a rebirth of a gospel song. I'm a bit confused and am not sure if it's by Celestial Choir or The Joubert Singers. All I know is that it was mixed back in the day by Larry Levan, a legendary dj of his time, and that now we have a modern version with a current artist’s name linked to it. Here’s the older version for comparison.

My name is Phyliss Mckoy Joubert, and I am the owner of KEEDZ. I also wrote Stand on the Word in 1982. It was remixed, signed onto Universal France, and now KEEDZ and The Glory Gospel Singers are coming to Japan this december to sing it. thanks,
