Since we are now officially in the Summer season, why not kick it off with a bit of Trinidad Island Funk vs. Archway Riviera vinyl goodness? Mukatsuku Records do it again with a double side of tropical heat to get people out of their seats and get sweaty whether you’re at the beach or not. The dance floor friendly Mavis John “Use My Body” (Nik Weston Official Exclusive Edit) is a hot and sweaty grinder that oozes not just sexiness, but screams hot, humid, funky dance time like no other. This tune is a tune to get them moving and into (or out of) what ever you want to. Tropical funk disco goodness at its best. This record cures what ails them, and the prescription is Mavis John and her sultry side exclusively edited by the man Nik Weston himself. The flip, is as tropical as they come. Guy Benton & Nik Weston “Riviera Jam” (Tropical Storm Steel Panapella mix) brings back island sounds and the steel drum, which a mover on its own. The track was taken from the long deleted Archway Riviera Tropical Jam EP 12 inch that first surfaced on the label in Spring 2013. Now on convenient 45 format, it still packs a punch. Whether you are kicking off a summertime set or trying to get them sweaty some place else, Mukasuku Records heat things up in all directions on this forty five. Check out snippets of each track below, and jump over to the Juno site to get the record which is out now.
