Spiteri’s “Night Time Love Affair” gets the remix treatment of Barcelona’s Disco-Funk outfit: Fundacion Tony Manero. Taking on a parallel path from their usual production style the Spaniards convey a quality Euro sounding groover which manages to smoothly balance out both, traditional club culture sounds and live instrumentation.
As for the flip, London / Venezuelan producers Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel take off in a Moroder inspired trip and do their reconstruction in an uplifting Italo-Discoey direction.
The original mix from 1980 is also included on the release without any alterations to the delight of the rare groove diggers.
This release is a continuation of a series of reworks from Spiteri’s Latino Funk fusion album, originally recorded between 1978-80 on the London premises of EMI studios.
