Incredibly enough, between sessions and gigs with The Phenomenal Handclap Band, all-round good guy Bing Ji Ling found the time to record this gorgeous slab of yacht-rock called “Sunshine Love”. And it couldn’t have come at a better time, what with springtime being here and all – a time for birds, bees, sunshine and sweet sweet love.
Ray Mang (the man, the myth) was called upon for remix duties and he turned it into a mouth-watering slo-mo disco track. Oh, baby.
Bing Ji Ling is actually Quinn Luke, long-time funk soul brother with a special place in his heart for nearly nekkid girls and all things Prince, Stevie and Earth Wind And Fire. Apart from releasing beautiful records as a solo artist he is also a member of Tommy Guerrero’s posse and of The Phenomenal Handclap Band, with whom he has been causing a bit of a ruckus over the last twelve months or so releasing singles and an album on Tummy Touch, Gomma, Truth & Soul, Friendly Fire and of course Lovemonk.
