East West Connection featuring Pete Trotman ‘Once I’ve Been There’ (incl. L+T Project and Iconix Mixes) Chillifunk Records

Hailing the re-launch of the iconic Chillifunk label is a classy rendition of Norman Conners’ 1977 soulful classic, ‘Once I’ve Been There’, from the legendary production duo, Lofty and Dr Bob Jones (aka East West Connection), who together were the faces of Chillifunk and sculpted the signature sound of label. Featuring the voice of Pete Trotman (Blacksmith), EWC bring the song right up to date for today’s dance floors. The package includes a vibrant selection of mixes from L+T Project (aka Lofty & Tom), who deliver a striking Philly flavoured Disco mix and sublime Common Mix, and Iconix (Aka Lofty and Rude Boy Rupert) deliver a smooth percussive groover and sublime dub.
