Well, when you need some grooving blues music, one of the best around is Junior Wells for sure. Junior was a king of the harp and everybody should have a copy of his Hoodoo Man Blues album. His music is still today an inspiration for many musicians and also DJ’s know how to adapt his work for a remix. Junior Wells hit “Messin’ with the Kid” for example was beautifully remix by DJ _AZK_.
Tom Azk a.k.a. dj _AZK_ remix “Messing With The Kid” fantastically. The song is groovy as hell, the funk in fueled intro is a killer and overall you’ll find some danceable beats in this remix.
AZK has been on the musical scene of the north of Spain since the 90’s. He started as a singer and guitar player in local rock bands until he fell in love with the blues and the harmonica, which is now always present in his productions and live shows.
