SALES NOTES

UK born, Australia based DJ & producer Dr Packer, who has garnered worldwide praise and acclaim for his soul, funk and disco edits, gives the Rework treatment to no less than four cuts from the legendary Salsoul Records back catalogue. Disco diva Loleatta Holloway and her mega-hit ‘Runaway’ is updated with a 2020 groove that maintains all the character and uplift of the soul drenched original. Rafael Cameron’s ‘Let’s Get It Off’ is a heavy slice of funk, with Cameron’s powerful gruff vocal front and centre over riffs and strings. Next is Ripple’s ‘The Beat Goes On’ – a shimmering, uptempo disco cut where Dr Packer really exhibits the sound and vibe 70’s dancefloors for contemporary ears while in-house collective The Salsoul Orchestra get ‘You’re Just The Right Size’ reworked: the lush percussive beats and elegant orchestral work are brightened up and who can resist that sultry vocal hook? Dr Packer once again reworks his magic to perfection.
