The fourth volume in the Luv N’Haight Edit Series features a re-work of Harry Whitaker’s Black Rennaisance classic “Magic Ritual” by GB (Gifted & Blessed). The deep spiritual vibe of the original is present in the edit/remix but is transformed into an electronic, percussion-heavy beast.

Harry Whitaker’s Black Rennaisance "Body, Mind, and Spirit," album is considered a holy grail amongst collectors of soul-jazz and rare groove, and an album so rare it's virtually a myth to many. Luv N’Haight’s re-issue of the album in the early 2000’s brought much needed attention and focus to this legendary piece of work.

Widely known for his work using the pseudonym GB, Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker is a producer, composer and electronic musician with a particular enthusiasm for analog electronics. Though his music ranges wide stylistically, he classifies his work under the umbrella term technoindigenous studies; the integration of the technological with the spiritual and ancestral. Armed with this concept, he transforms “Magic Ritual” into a brooding, techno-afro dance tune that borders on meditation with it’s repetitive, hypnotic percussion.

GB finds himself in the unique position of being an early champion of the Los Angeles beat movement as well as being at the forefront of the current underground house and techno scene, all while keeping a low profile. Reyes-Whittaker has collaborated with a long list of creative minds, among them J*DaVeY, Spacek, Airto and Flora Purim, Jody Watley and many others.
