Ruben & Ra

September 23, 2011

Well we’re getting ready for the Tiger & Woods show here in Miami on October 1st at The Electric Pickle, so I’m particularly in a re-edit mood (when am I not?).  Ruben & Ra have even been referred to as “Britain’s answer to Tiger & Woods.”  These guys are best know for their Retrospective series of releases (retro001, retro002, retro003 feat. Rayko) which primarily sample or re-edit classic electrofunk/boogie tracks like I Can’t Wait by Nu Shooz or Mr. DJ by The Concept and add a contemporary and punchier flair.  Edits have been around for a while but artists are constantly reinventing this art.  We have for you a sneak peak at the brand spanking new Retro004 that’s set to be released October 24th.  Here’s how they describe the release:

Dedicating the A-side to the golden era of stateside electro, ‘Street Dance’ lifts samples from Break Machine’s East Coast anthem ‘Street Dance’, while ‘Moving On’ pays homage to the Californian soul of Ollie & Jerry’s iconic ‘There’s No Stoppin Us’ from ‘84.Over on the flip, the Sun is shining brightly with two poolside jams in the form of ‘Do You Need My Love?’ and the EP’s secret weapon ‘Island Living’.
