Impassioned Disco connoisseur Mannix teams up with his regular studio mate VillaLife on a fantastic live instrument driven cover version of Junior’s 80’s smash, ‘Mama Used To Say’. Florian Macheck provides awesome guitar licks and a powerful live bass, whilst Simon Plötzeneder delivers a beautiful trumpet performance. Andre Espeut’s vibrant vocal is very respectful towards the timeless original, yet putting his own stamp on it, he takes the song into different dimensions. Brazilian Disco don, DJ Meme offers a groovy 80’s tinged Disco remix, rounding off this uplifting sing-along package, primed to re-ignite dance floors and terraces this summer!
