OYOBI feat. Karen Lee Andrews
Don’t Let It Go To Your Head / Se Te Va
Latin vibestars reinterpret Gamble & Huff/Jean Carn classic – Vinyl 45.
Commissioned by Groovescooter, Sydney Latin trio Oyobi knocked us out when they heeded the call to turn the Jean Carn fave Don’t Let It Go To Your Head into a more dancefloor-ready/DJ-friendly track. Working with gutsy, big-tonsilled singer Karen Lee Andrews ensured the first pressing of this sold-out in just over a month. Luckily the repress is here and now comes with bonus stickers and new artwork. On the B-side is an equally motivating tropical bomb, written by Oyobi themselves – made up of percussionist/producer Vincent Sebastian, bassist Adam Ventoura and in-demand keyboardist Daniel Pliner. Both mastered beautifully by William Bowden and pressed to vinyl. No Digital!
