Following on from their re-work of the George Benson classic, ‘Give Me The Night’, London’s Latin disco fusion kings, Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel team up with the original 70’s London Disco fusion survivor, Spiteri on their new breakbeat fuelled release, ’The Power Of Disco’.
On this latest gem, the London based Venezuelan producers deliver their finest work to date as they pay homage and celebrate the little known work of their fellow countryman and original London-based 70’s pioneer Spiteri. Hailed for his seminal work fusing Latin, disco and funk, including the magical 1973 album ’Spiteri’ (hugely influential on a new generation of Latin bands), with this new re-work, the iconic Spiteri musical legacy continues to evolve and attract new fans.

The tasty breakbeat style disco vibes kicks off this insanely catchy stomper, quickly followed by all the essential ingredients of funky driving bass, flying clays, stings stabs, cutting rhythm guitar, even a synth solo that early Kool & The Gang would be proud of. And as if just to show off and tease us – a wonderful piano part right at the point of fade.

Fast approaching their 100th release with their Imagenes label having racked up over a decade, the duo are a worthy testament to the Latin funk and disco sound. To make music this authentic requires an amazing mastery and craftmanship of their art form, …this track will now be your new favourite disco record!
