Our good friend, DJ lil'dave dives deep into the stories and influences around a group of carefully selected songs, this episode he shares the history of the classic "Tighten Up". Check out the podcast below!
On today's episode of Excellent Reception, we are looking at a song that, for whatever reason, inspired a seemingly endless stream of reinterpretations. It was a number one hit in the 1960's, but it still has a way of getting the dancing floor moving after all of these years. This song is "Tighten Up" by Archie Bell and The Drells.
It’s been a busy year for Jimpster, with his Soul Spectral and This Thing (with Rich Medina) EP’s both being amongst the best received and highest selling releases of his to date. He has also added his touch to The Sunburst Band, Soichi Terada, Feiertag, Baiana System, The Secret and Retromigration in the form of some massive remixes to boot, as well as having just released an Anthology spanning 4 vinyl.
