How apt that during this brief UK heat wave ‘Sunshine’ from LOS CHARLY’S ORCHESTRA continues to fill dance floors. Hardly surprising. It’s a great feel good tune. Perfect for summer, one of its big attractions is the Phil Bailey slanted vocal from ANDRE ESPEUT.
Fans of Mr E and his soulful delivery will be delighted to learn that he’s joined up with soulful house collective SITUATION for a new single – ‘Be A Better Man – that channels the same optimistic summer groove as ‘Sunshine’.
Situation won big praise for their 2015 outing ‘Get To Know Me’, and ‘Be A Better Man’ is set to join it as a 2016 party and festival floor filler.
The tune, as you’d expect, comes in a cornucopia of mixes. At the mo’ we’re loving the Juan Hoerni mix which combines a Californian vibe with an irresistible Latin groove courtesy of the flute and trumpet of David Soto. The Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye mix digs deeper while the Ourra tweak brings out the tunes’ big boogie undertow.
However, whatever mix you go for (apart from the instrumental, of course) you’ll be delighted that the mixers, tweakers and twiddlers have kept the Andre Espeut vocal right up front!
‘Be A Better Man’ by Situation is released on Situationism on July 8th. (vinyl and digital)
