    The Sunburst Band's lush "In The Thick Of It" has been a big club and radio hit throughout the summer, one that has even won praise from diehard fans of the Brenda Russell original.

    Now Sweden's Opolopo (hot from his Gregory Porter “1960 What” rework) gives the track an 80’s boogie/proto house rework.

    Squelchy stabs and funked up synth bass make this a sure fire winner for both the muso’s and dancefloors.

    Yes, there are quite a few boogie influenced house tracks but most of them are based around big samples, where as this contains none.

    If you prefer things a little less vocal then check the Boogie Body Land Dub, this grooves along without any house clichés.
