Lovers of a Bob James sample may recognise a theme on this track before, 'Housematic' gets computerised - chek out the artwork!

Jazzy funk house is just what we like on a Bandcamp Friday and 'Oh Crazy Baby' is followed up with a Chicago funk al la Roy Ayers synth that's got a European boogie twinge in 'Music Love Dance' featuring the vocals of Okuali.

That would be a strong first release for any label but Move On Up Records were not content with that and they literally moved up with a remix of 'Oh Crazy Baby' by LTJ X-Perience!

Also known as Luca Trevisi, he's has been DJ/producing and remixing of decades and updating 70s jazz and Latin dancefloor favourites, most notably Joe Bataan's 'Ordinary Guy' and this caught the attention of Gilles Peterson and the rest is history.  Just to name drop, I met Joe and Mrs Bataan once in London and a really nice chap his is too.

It's a beautiful groovin' remix that's worthy of 7 minutes on a 12".  And getting back to that artwork, for now, this release is on 12" only so you'll be able to admire it full size so to speak as well as the music.

P.S. If you're going to Barcelona, this is where these guys are based and it'd be more than worthwhile checking them out.
