From The Desk Of Global Noize: Billy Holiday’s “Glad To Be Unhappy”

Jason Miles has been around for a long time, programming synths for and jamming with the likes of Miles Davis and Luther Vandross, let alone producing other side projects over the years. DJ Logic has been around, too, working with ?uestlove, Vernon Reid, Marcus Miller and many more. The two have been through a lot together, traveling the world from Japan to Marrakech before finally releasing the first Global Noize album in 2008, later joined permanently by Indian vocalist Falu on their latest, A Prayer For The Planet (Lightyear/EMI). Global Noize will be guest editing all week. Read our brand new Q&A with Logic and Miles.

DJ Logic: She has such a smooth, soulful voice that scats across any vibe. This is a song that uplifts you when you’re down, and I got goose bumps remixing this track.
