Marco Polo x Lee Fields & The Expressions - Just Can't Win (Marco Polo Remix)

  • Artist: Marco Polo
  • Track: Just Can't Win (Marco Polo Remix)
  • Producer: Marco Polo
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

Nearly half a century after dropping his debut single, Lee Fields is still making music that sounds like it was recorded in the golden age of soul. Don't believe me? Take a listen to Just Can't Win, a standout off his latest album with The Expressions. Of course, this version of the record boasts a few more contemporary elements, as it's been remixed by Marco Polo. The Canadian beatsmith uses a light touch behind the boards; the most significant change is that the percussion has been beefed up and pushed to the front of the mix. Without overpowering Fields's soulfully weathered vocals, Polo ups the cut's head-nod factor considerably. For the original version of Can't Win and much more, cop Fields and The Expressions' Emma Jean LP, out now in stores and online.
