‘Dancing People Volume 5’ drops in July of this year, and as you would expect, here is another release that digs deep into archives. London based artist XOA continues the edits series with 2 dance floor focussed belters in the form of ‘Sekele’ on the A-Side and ‘Nimele’ on the B- Side. The label has also teamed up with the legends over at Handy Supply Co to create a limited run of T-Shirts and socks in blue/pink pastel colours to compliment the physical release. Be sure to check these out on their Bandcamp store!
‘Nieme’ is high energy rework of the classic Afro-Disco track ‘Nieme Bolo’ by Charly Kingson from back in 1978. The original vocal takes a backseat in this edit, with XOA carefully sampling the vocal to emphasise selected elements that form new hooks instantly grab the listeners attention and holding it throughout . The unmistakable, emphatic brass stabs from the original are a key element in this edit, as is that classic 70’s funky bassline that could only have been born out of one of the analog Synthesizers of the era. This edit takes the original from the archives and puts it back on the dancefloor where it well and truly belongs!
As ever, strictly limited edition vinyl only release.
