“Good Feeling”

Etta James’ “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” has been sampled many, many, many, many times before, each version giving the impression that the original James tune is a slow, somber listen, which couldn’t be further from the truth. On “Good Feeling,” DJ Manny, young footworker and trax-maker in the Ghettoteknitianz crew, manages to make James sound even more laid back and gloomy, which is especially strange, given the dizzying footwork rhythms employed by Manny. (Good track for Tribe to weep to after the Red Legends embarrass them in the circle. JK JK JK.)

Check out the video above, which features Manny, Curtis, Dre, Sonic, T-MO, Jonvante, and Dewayne footworking to the track. And look for The Manny N Rashad Show, Manny’s collaboration with DJ Rashad, due hopefully sometime this year on Lit City Trax.
