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