Moodymann delivers a stellar remix here, taking the original downtempo jam and turning it into a broken jazz house cut. The theme of "Forgotten Places" is reimagined as a tale about Detroit, a city abandoned in many ways after the 12th Street riot in 1967. Kenny Dixon himself adds vocals, shouting out streets, neighborhoods (including Black Bottom, a black neighborhood demolished in order for Interstate 75 to be constructed) and famous figures from the city of Detroit, even namechecking Buy-Rite records, the small record shop that once employed Rick Wilhite and himself and was one of the underappreciated centers of techno out on 7 Mile. A fantastic deep ode to black Detroit!
