Philadelphia’s Arctic Records is one label with rich history and a deep catalog of music that has been filling dance floors for years and from time to time provided Hip Hop’s elite producers with loops and samples to create new works. The label recently struck a deal to collaborate with local Philadelphia record shop Brewerytown Beats to release a series of previously unreleased (or remixed) 45’s from their catalog, beginning with the first in the series from Honey and The Bees “Music (Make’s You Wanna Dance)”. One single from their endless catalog that seem to be on just about every collectors want list, yet very few actually own the original is The Ambassadors “Ain’t Got The Love of One Girl (On My Mind)” most famously known for and used by Pete Rock (and C.L. Smooth) for “Ain’t Got The Love”.
Given the popularity of this tune it was a no brainer to include it in the series but this isn’t just a reissue by any means what so ever. As with the previous release, the label brought in the legendary Tom Moulton to remix these tracks from the original master tapes. So what you will find on this 7” is “Ain’t Got The Love Of One Girl” on the A-side b/w an instrumental on the flip that features drums brought more to the front and extended for your doubling up pleasure. What more can you ask for when a release such as this is waiting in the wings and ready to fill your crates.
This 45 will be available for pre-order on May 4th starting at 12 noon EST, will begin shipping on May 18th, is limited to 500 copies and sold exclusively through Brewerytown Beats
