Interesting one here, a re-interpretation of Steve Reid's 'Lions of Judah' as imagined by space jazz drummer Nick Woodmansey and Ahmed Abdullah, a trumpeter who worked with the sadly departed Reid in the Legendary Master Brotherhood. This single is a right stomping deep spiritual jazz funk fest that makes hard for the dancefloor and comes up smelling of roses every time. I really like the 'Red, Black and Green' vocal chant, the warm sensuous horns, the blistering propulsion of the hard funk drums......the ferocious celebratory drive of it all, just a great, great tune! It REALLY doesn't fucking need a Four Tet re-edit, he's obviously approached it with a bit of trepidation and hardly deviated from the pace or groove of the original so rather than making some epic rafter-bending house odyssey he's just transformed it into more stunted, sterile cyclical dancefloor fodder in turn losing some of the uniting spirit of the original.
