“Do you remember the 21st night of September?” are lyrics that are indelibly imprinted in the minds of all Earth, Wind & Fire fans, and to celebrate the classic 42-year old composition and just released remix, PRO MOTION. The Brad LeBeau Company releases their exclusive interview with the legendary R&B/Pop band.
Organized by the world’s oldest and largest independent dance music marketing company and Sony Legacy Records, America’s top tier club deejays, radio programmers, club culture tastemakers, and remixers came together via Zoom to meet with the three original members of EWF and discuss one of their biggest hits and its lasting significance.
Executive Produced by Brad LeBeau’s 37 year old PRO MOTION firm and re-produced by dance music veteran DJ/producer Eric Kupper, “September 2020” follows the teams’ Billboard dance chart topping remix work for the Diana Ross classics “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough 2017”, “I’m Coming Out/Upside Down 2018”, “The Boss 2019”, and “Love Hangover 2020”), Judy Garland’s 1954 “The Man That Got Away”, and the 1978 staple, “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor.
Per usual, Kupper artfully maintains the integrity of the original 1978 version of “September” while adding his signature production style that appeals to original Earth, Wind & Fire fans as well as a whole new generation of pop culture listeners.
