version galore is a newly found label, deeply rooted into the music culture. we are bringing you the selected reworks / re-edits from the top producers in the game, showing lots of respect and care for the original, but elevating it s spirit and taking it somewhere else. it s all about the dialogue of cultures and the idealistic desire to pass the music legacy on! no half-measures, played-out tunes, lazy cuts, or boring -808-kick boosting- biz! on the first release of the label we are delighted to bring you the chosen cuts from the man that needs no introduction - opolopo. he knows a thing or two about making a personal version of a track that can easily overshadow the original, and we guess that s the case with the two cuts he prepared for us on this records. things escalate fast. on the a-side you will find originally a midtempo mild jam -go get it-, which is turned by opolopo into an effectively-upbeat stomper that will inject true feeling and groove in any house or disco set alike. it s one of those rare occasions when a soulful tune turns out to be super dance-floor efficient no matter what! the b-side is all about the raw and emotional funky madness of -american promise-. it s infectious groove, pinpointed with growling sub-bass is just devastating. epithets are irrelevant here - just play it loud, but with caution! -version galore - play some more!-
