Review: The year is 1979, disco is at its peak and tracks like this one from Cuban-born percussionist Candido, who backed many Afro-Cuban and straight-ahead jazz acts from the 1950s onwards, are blowing up spots all over the UK and United States. It's a lively, up beat disco gem laced with funk and soul, chunky drums and a killer lead that make you want to shake your bones loose. "Thousand Finger Man" on the flip is a more smooth-crusin' jam that sweeps you up and carries you away on a breeze of horns, keys and percussion.
Rafael Cameron - "Let's Get It Off" (Dr Packer rework) (6:13)
Ripple - "The Beat Goes On & On" (Dr Packer rework) (7:30)
The Salsoul Orchestra - "You're Just The Right Size" (Dr Packer rework) (6:07)
Review: UK born, Australia based DJ and producer Dr Packer is back with more of his on point edits. He tackles some serious disco heavyweights here on Salsoul and first off, disco diva Loleatta Holloway and her mega-hit "Runaway" gets a fresh 2020 update with some soul uplifting studio skills. A heavy funk remix of Rafael Cameron's "Let's Get It Off" is next, with the original still taking centre stage, then the shimmering and glistening disco gold of Ripple's "The Beat Goes On" follows before in-house collective The Salsoul Orchestra also get treated to some elegant orchestral work and a sultry vocal hook.
