Luchito & Néstor - Tighten Up (Original Gravity)
25th May 2022
Luchito & Néstor
The mind boggles as to why we haven't featured this label on 45 Live before now but we can't think of a better introduction to the Original Gravity label than this latin funk scorcher. One thing's for sure, this label will remain on our taste radar from this point forth. On this release they shine a light on Luchito & Néstor's 'Tighten Up' version. The artists have taken Houston's Archie Bell & The Drells original version and accentuated the Latin elements of the track giving more bounce per ounce thanks to a driving percussion and horn section accompanied by Luchito's charming Spanish Harlem tones. We are feeling this one and one's things for sure the full force of this track will be felt on a big system. Play it loud! This is a flaming hot version of the much covered floor filler, and one of the best out there!
At the time of writing there are currently just a handful of copies available of the blue vinyl second pressing on The Original Gravity website so we strongly urge you to grab your copy post haste while you still can. Out now on Bandcamp. GO!
