The original composer of the timeless classic "Respect" was the Soul artist Otis Redding, but this tune of 1967 became famous through the vocals of Aretha Franklin (I even heard that Atlantic made a repress of it recently).
Even though, "Respect" was recorded more than twenty years later by the singer Adeva, most precisely in 1988 and, in this version, her delicious vocals match perfectly with ultra funky basslines and sensual beats. That’s what the so-called ‘House music’ is all about: a sensual mood that at the same time compels you to dance euphorically. I remember Marky telling me that he used to play this tune several times when it came out, and that certainly was the case of several other DJs of underground repertories. It was definitely a reference for the big clubs of the east side of São Paulo, among the best ones of the city during the end of the eighties (nearby 1988). That's why this tune is so special, by the way: it's as funky and soulful as a House track must be.
