balearic disco edits funk Re-stocks soul

A1.  Alphonse Groove (Andy Kidd Refunk)

B1.  Dirty Love (Situation Edit)
B2.  Dance Baby (Lucci Capri Edit)


Messalina returns with another superb EP of reworked Balearic rarities. In Side A’s ‘Alphonse Groove’, Cafe Del Mar DJ Andy Kidd expertly moulds an under- appreciated 80s jazz-funk B-side from Mr. Mouzon into an eight-minute long irresistible floor filling slo-mo groover with mellow pads and percussion added to taste. With the promo having already enjoyed heavy rotation from Ibiza DJs this season, this is sure to grab the attention of soul, funk and Balearic heads alike. On the flip Messalina welcome the ever-popular Situation. With releases under their belt on Disco Deviance, ChopShop, Masterworks and Editorial to name a few, the Stroud-based crew here deliver a red-hot party-starting disco boogie bomb ‘Dirty Love’. Last but definitely not least is ‘Dance Baby’, label boss Lucci Capri’s loving rework of a super-cool and super-rare Caribbean disco bubbler. Top quality as usual from the Ibiza imprint.
