Roy Ayers – Sugar (The Reflex Revision)
Originally unearthed and released by BBE as part of the Virgin Ubiquity (Unreleased Recordings 1976-1981) project, ‘Sugar’ is a smooth funk/disco gem recorded in 1978, which features vocals from Carla Vaughan as well as Roy Ayers himself.
‘The Reflex Revision’ of ‘Sugar’ is light and elegant, letting each part breathe on its own whilst making the most of the potent percussion and horn sections. Created with DJs in mind and with summer on the way, we might just have yet another pool party classic on our hands. An instrumental version is also included, which further showcases those incredible original parts and creates a real dance floor-friendly groove.
