Weekend Sun / You’re Good To Me


Darlingtons finest funk band (ok, it’s not a long list, but still, these guys and gals are damn good, so hear me out) Weekend Sun are back with another batch of beats on Hero Records.

The title track, You’re Good To Me is a proper funk shuffler with a beautiful soul vocal from Esther Taylor. Cracking litle sax solo in there as well.

The flip side,  Her Name Escapes Me is a far mellower affair, with slinky strings and a bossa-nova beat that hits the perfect ‘summer evening’ vibe.

On remix duty for the A side are the Renegades of Jazz, who lift the energy levels and drop a stack load more horns on it – always a popular move in my book – before a triple play from Hero No 7. with the Distant Hero and a pair of B-Boy mixes, the first of which makes things a little darker before the latter two sign out with a properly beaty take on life

If you’re liking the sounds, it drops on 28 August on limited edition 7″ vinyl via Kudos, and digitally soon after.
