German producer Blinded Hearts has teamed up with Swedish singer Louise CS to recreate the classic 1981 hit “Just The Two Of Us”. The duo’s version pays tribute to the original track by Grover Washington Jr. and Bill Withers by sampling its iconic saxophone line. However, Blinded Hearts add a clear modern feel to his cover. Adding four on the floor drums and smooth electric guitars, the track has an undeniable Deep House influence.
The artist says that inspiration struck him at an unusual time and place:
“On a lazy afternoon I watched a episode of King Of Queens. The original track from the eighties was played in the background and so I had the idea to cover this all time favorite. And once Louise CS was on board, it all made sense.” – Blinded Hearts
“Just The Two Of Us” is sure to be a favorite of Deep House fans, as well as fans of the original track!
