Ruben & Ra’s Retrospective label has become the go-to imprint for high quality re-edits of seminal, and sometimes forgotten, ’80s classics.
Their latest release ‘Back top the 80’s Vol.1’ is the first official release from rising star of the edit-scene – and Warrington’s finest – 80s Child, aka Danny Worrall.
Raise on a strict diet of Toto, Prince and Michael Jackson, Danny is establishing himself alongside fellow edit-ters like Greg Wilson, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Get Down Edits, Tiger & Woods, 78 Edits and of course Retrospective’s own Ruben & Ra.
To be released on 12-inch vinyl and as two digital singles, Danny takes four tracks of funked-out boogie and gives them a new lease of life.
We’re excited to be premiering 80’s Child’s re-edit of Donna Allen’s 1987 seminal classic ‘Serious‘ – a classic joint of 80s flamboyant pop that doesn’t exactly need much adding to it in our mind – so it’s nice to hear Worrall amplify the best parts of the original: namely the bellowing brass sections, those stodgy drums and, of course, Allen’s sublime vocals.
