Gulf Aid Allstars – “Ain’t My Fault” (Magnum Remix) by Magnum.

Over at the Six Degrees office we are blessed to not only work with amazing artists that are on the label, but to also have employees who are very talented up and coming artists in their own right. Will Magid, who, under the production moniker ‘Magnum’ has a hot remix for the Gulf Relief Foundation out now. Besides remixes you can hear Will playing trumpet with such diverse acts as Solomon Burke, Muytator, Afrolicious and Happy Rabbit to name a few.
You can vote for the remix on the Gulf Relief homepage, and even make your own track with Mos Def and Preservation Hall Jazz Band stems. More info after the break.

On May 12th, 2010, Mos Def and Preservation Hall’s Ben Jaffe met in New Orleans to collaborate on a song to benefit The Gulf Relief Foundation, an organization providing relief for those affected by the Gulf oil spill catastrophe.

In an all-night jam session less than 12 hours later, they recorded the song at Preservation Hall with the newly formed Gulf Aid Allstars: Mos Def, Lenny Kravitz, Trombone Shorty, Tim Robbins and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The result: a remake of the New Orleans rhythm and blues classic “It Ain’t My Fault”.

The track and accompanying music video of the session are now available for download exclusively on iTunes with all proceeds to benefit The Gulf Relief Foundation. As an extra incentive, your purchase of the single gets you a free 1-year subscription to Spin Magazine, just enter your iTunes receipt number at SPIN.COM/PreservationHall
