Gecko Turner – Toda Mojaíta (12-inch) LMNKV23

Gecko Turner - Toda Mojaíta (12-inch) LMNKV23The second single from Gecko Turner‘s rather super album on Lovemonk (Chandalismo Ilustrado, if you were about to ask) comes complete with a pair of bumping version excursions from former Spiritual South-ist Danny J Lewis and the Dutch Rhythm Combo – a bit of a bonus for the floor…

The original takes Gecko into the deep Caribbean – a real Cuban influence here, and no wonder: the vocal comes from Gene Garcia, and the piano tumbao is from the legendary Javier ‘Caramelo’ Masó. It’s a beautiful little hipshaker, and no mistake…

Gecko’s typically quirky original is given the heavy percussive work-over in a deep Detroit house style by Danny J Lewis’s Afrofuturistic mixes– so Spiritual South it hurts.
