THE HARRY BELLS: Kingman Island EP Remixed (2016)

Kingman Island Remixed EP The Harry BellsI hope you’re in a calypso/ latin beats mood for here are The Harry Bells (Washington’s foremost – and for all I know the only – horn and bell tribute to Harry Belafonte) getting the remix treatment from MB favourites Daytoner and Honest Lee along with Kid Gusto and Sol Power All-stars. Daytoner applies a rolling drum break to Coconut Woman for that extra lilt, Sol Power All-Stars go for the full dancefloor afro-latin calypso sound clash, Kid Gusto does a lowkey but insistent world beat thing and Honest Lee gets in no fewer than two remixes – one on an afro tip, the other in a very trippy-hop stylee. Tricky to pick a standout as they’re all good.
