LA smooth groove kings Leisure Council are back with this little edit they’ve whipped up of The S.O.S. Band’s classic High Hopes. The track’s got a killer proto-boogie bassline, which makes it prefect fodder for a modern dancefloor retouch, and Nicky, Jeremy & Sam seriously deliver the goods.
Keeping true to the original, this edit is slick and sexy all the way. A bit more emphasis is placed on that bassline, the bests are beefed up a bit, taking on a B-Boy swing, all kept in touch with the tracks soulful vocal. Edits should be all about making older tunes fit on todays dancefloors, and Leisure Council have done just that right here. Hot summer nights vibes all round.
