Sexual Healing LP
Hot 8 Brass Band

Released: 8 Sep 2017

Label: Tru Thoughts

The Hot 8 Brass Band’s legendary cover of Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing gets a special and extremely limited release for Record Store Day 2016. Pressed on gold coloured vinyl and housed in a deluxe pantone gold sleeve, this special package features the original edit of Sexual Healing alongside fresh new edits for the dancefloor. This stone-cold classic has been a fixture in radio, club and festival sets across the world for almost a decade and only continues to grow in popularity.

Alongside the original, this release features new reworks from Ibibio Sound Machine, Maddslinky (AKA Zed Bias), Werkha, J-Felix and more – the diverse package sees the New Orleans greats celebrating their classic track on an excitingly fresh note. With the band on the form of their lives, rocking packed venues with the sort of visceral, body-shaking live performance that only they can give, these eclectic new remixes sees their inimitable energy spreading ever further, crossing even more genre lines and reaching into every corner of club-land.

One of a very few brass bands who pour as much charisma, training and talent into their vocals as their horn playing, their sound packs an almighty connective power that remains uniquely Hot 8 no matter what influences they draw on. October 2015’s ‘Vicennial’ LP and sell-out UK/Ireland tour gained the band heavy and continuing support, from The Sunday Times, Independent On Sunday, Songlines and Metro to the world’s top radio and club DJs.
