More Info:

É Soul Cultura captain, originator of Manchester's legendary Electric Chair and definitive people's champion, Luke Una taps into a lifetime's worth of musical discovery for the second volume in our Mr Bongo Edits series. A cosmic coming together that sees two of Luke's secret weapons, re-edited and re-contextualised by the man himself to provide optimal dancefloor euphoria.First up, Thandi Zulu & The Young Five's interpretation of Pure Energy's early '80s disco power play - 'Love Game'. With a distinctive South African synth bass and killer keys combo, Luke explains the original has this "bonkers alchemy of heavy machine soul, uptempo rawness and a majestic disco evangelism", making it ripe for a re-edit. On the B side, Lionel Pillay's Jazz dancer 'Plum'. "The original was a relentless 18-minute raw jam", Luke states, "which despite it's late '70s South African origin kinda reminded me of a 1986 Chicago piano House record".
