Released from 430 West Records in 2000, Blackwater is an epic house tune by Octave One. The detroit techno inspired song opens with a fabulous string intro and emits feel-good vibes that “flow like the sunshine” for almost 9 minutes. Carl Kennedy “modernizes” the classic with his interpretation. While Kennedy’s version does not differ greatly from the original, Kennedy’s version is less organic and more electro-ish than the original.
