Florida-based artists, Dirty Lowdown and Dominican Don , are preparing to release a
brand new single on Friday, July 31 . The new single, ‘ Just A Little Bit Of You ,’ is a
reworking of the 1975 Michael Jackson classic. The track, distributed by CD Baby, will
be available on every major
digital music platform and
streaming service. (iTunes,
Amazon, Spotify, etc.)
‘Just A Little Bit Of You’ was
originally released on Michael
Jackson’s fourth solo effort,
‘Forever, Michael.’ The soulful
nature of the record laid the
groundwork for the rest of
Jackson’s career, and his
departure from the famous
Motown Records shortly after
opened a new chapter in the
young prodigy’s career. (The
album was released when
Jackson was sixteen.) The late legend passed away six years ago, leaving an incredible
legacy and catalogue. He was, after all, the King of Pop.
Dirty Lowdown and Dominican Don shed the Motown vibe of the track for a more
contemporary, modernized sound. The two artists are elegantly accented by heavy
electronic instrumentation, tight beats, and string sections. There’s also a significant
addition of hip-hop lyricism on the latter half of the tune. While remaining faithful and
respectful to the original song, both Lowdown and Don take creative liberties when
reenergizing it for a new generation.
The creative license that Dirty Lowdown and Dominican Don take with ‘Just A Little Bit
Of You’ is widely successful. Paying homage to the King of Pop seems natural and
fitting, as the musical lineage of both these artists can most certainly be traced back to
Jackson and the Motown sound. In 1975, Jackson charted well with the song, scoring
his biggest hit in three years and top honors on both the pop and
soul charts. Now, in 2015, forty years later, ‘Just A Little Bit Of
You’ is ready to return.
Both Dirty Lowdown and Dominican Don are seasoned, veteran performers that have
extensive live and studio experience, especially in the Florida area. Dirty Lowdown
was previously featured on the song ‘Unstoppable,’ a tune supporting the Miami Heat.
The song was remixed into several versions and was successful in harnessing the
community’s support of the team.
The single will be released under the rising independent label, Mark Of Excellence
Productions . Information regarding the artists and the label can be found below. The
release will be available globally on July 31.
