The title of trumpeter Etienne Charles’ new album Creole Soul refers to the mixture of influences on the project  and his own ethnically diverse background as a Trinidadian. Though the base of his sound is in jazz, Charles’ music includes influences from the French, Spanish and English speaking Caribbean as well as North America, from Haitian Creole chants and blues to rocksteady, reggae and calypso.

Complex Magazine just published a Top 10 countdown of the best Bob Marley remixes on their website the other day. The list was inspired, in part, by the recent release of Legend: Remixed, a new UME/Tuff Gong release featuring official reworks of Bob’s biggest classics from names like Z-Trip and Thievery Corporation, several tracks from which were featured in the article. Perhaps the compilation and the list should have waited, though, because we just heard what is easily one of the best Bob remixes we’ve ever encountered, blowing most of their inclusions out of the water.

Remixing any legend’s tunes is risky business. But remixing Bob Marley is like remixing Michael Jackson. You don’t do it unless you really know what you’re doing.

Clapton-Marley-Every-Little-Thing

The connection between Eric Clapton and Bob Marley runs deep. “Slowhand”‘s 1974 version of  “I Shot the Sheriff” is perhaps the most famed reggae cover of all-time, and the song that gave Marley’s music some of its earliest mainstream exposure in the U.S. To this day, it’s the only Clapton single (solo or otherwise) to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the only Marley composition to do so as well.
