TRACK REVIEW: Kerri Chandler – Sunday Sunlight (Delano Smith remix) by Amrit Sandhu


The original track of Kerri Chandler’s Sunday Sunlight came out back in 1999 on the now defunct Metaphor Recordings and is one of those deep house grooves that reminds you of the Detroit Techno movement. Delano Smith was born in Chicago but hails from Detroit’s west side and was one of the original youth that was mentored by legendary Motown DJ, Ken Collier. Smith’s remix puts a spin on this classic, which is noticeable on this track. This track, out on Apollonia is sure to create buzz.

Delano Smith has created a smoothed out version compared to the original, but it’s much more “house friendly/deep house friendly” than that of its predecessor. This song reminds me of chilling and hanging out at an upscale bar or club. It’s one of those songs you can kick back and relax to after a long day.

The progression throughout the song is steady without too many crazy grooves. The additional voices from the original track create a nice break that allows the song to mellow out. This song in not only emotional but gets your head bobbing.

This remix shows that Delano Smith is not ready to give up after being on hiatus and continues to produce high quality Detroit Techno. His latest releases include Haunted, working with another deep house producer named Hector. Delano Smith will be playing the upcoming Movement Festival 2014 in Detroit, look out for new music from him that’s just as groovy with a twist and surely to make waves.
