Lost but not least! Gene King feat. Sacha Williamson – That’s Enough For Me (TrackWyze Dub) (Shines Records)
From the vaults of Shines Records, here we go with the instantly appealing ‘That’s Enough For Me’. With no one else but label head Gene King along with Canadian songstress Sacha Williamson on this solid soulful House gem.
Meanwhile, in charge of the remix duties, DJ Jalal would give it a fascinating treatment back in 2007. This under the form of this syncopated jazzy dub carrying the elements which have been for much on his unique trademark…
That’s enough for me, but what about you?

Hailing from Chicago, IL, Jalal Johnson, aka DJ Jalal, pretty much came up with what must be seen as a signature sound in the second half of the 2000. Thus standing at the crossroad between Deep House, Techno and Electro Jazz.
All in all, Jalal delivered the major part of his productions on the Consortium Muzik label. Beginning with ‘The Strength Of A Man’ along with Carolyn Victorian and Ovina Gregory. The latter receiving the remixing treatment courtesy of Abicah Soul a few months after. But also ‘Trak Wyze Presents DJ Jalal’. An EP that features his remix of ‘Happiness’ for Harold Brandon. Then he came to rework Andy Tamashi feat. Victoria T‘s ‘The Meaning Of Love’. And he also managed to brilliantly reshape his own ‘Strength Of A Man’ as a part of ‘The Pilgrimage EP’.
Elsewhere, he brought his contribution to Gene King featuring Sacha‘s ‘That’s Enough For Me’ on Shines Records by the end of 2007. Then he also managed to come up with ‘El Matador’ on Unified Records. A track which we ended up considering as the Single Of The Year on the first version of IDMW.
