Los Amigos Invisibles & Dimitri From Paris – Glad To Know You

Los Amigos Invisibles & Dimitri From Paris Glad To Know You Gomma
Proving that you can't keep a good tune down, that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, that talent borrows, genius steals and, er, other platitudes, three new releases for ya tonight that all, one way or another, pay homage to classic tracks of yesteryear.

First up, this cover of Chas Jankel's Glad To Know You from 1982 – something of a fave on the disco/boogie floors and now re-rendered in remarkably faithful fashion by Venezuela's Los Amigos Invisibles and their regular collaborator Dimitri From Paris. Their version is just a wee bit housier than the original and comes accompanied by an instrumental, but the most exciting news here is the inclusion of an 11-minute-long Ray Mang Flying Dub.

If the words "11-minute Ray Mang dub" don't get you at least a LITTLE excited then you're probably reading this blog by mistake. If they do, then we'll just say it's every bit as lo-slung, groovy and slightly bonkers in a vaguely Levan-esque manner as you'd expect, and leave it at that.

Beards and cardigans are optional; checking for this isn't.

Out: This week
