Our favourite Glaswegian double-act Shaka Loves You have been keeping themselves as busy as ever. Firstly, they’ve released their brand new Loose Joints 002, which is their EP series dedicated to the kind of Funk and Disco music that helps free up the limbs to create shapes and moves you never knew existed. Onboard volume 2 is a much fresher feeling and uptempo Disco re-edit of This Feelin’ by Frank Hooker & Positive People and following that is one of the funkiest jams you’re ever likely to hear as the guys work their magic on The Bump by the Commodores. Essential cuts if ever there was any!
The next bit of SLY news to inform you about is their appearance on Toy Beats excellent Disco Data Podcast with a guestmix that is littered with some of the classiest and most luxurious Disco music on the planet. You can find the tracklist for the mix at the bottom of this post but it in the meantime, feast upon the magnificence right here:
