Lovebeat (feat. Clarisse Muvemba)

A 4 track house single (25m 1s) — released December 11th 2006 on Heya Hifi

When Sumo played this song to us for the first time we were totally blown away by the vocals of Clarisse Muvemba. We were aware of Sumo's skills from their previous work, but combined with Mrs. Muvemba in the song booth the outcome was simply amazing. The common denominator – an unpolished musical attitude with a touch of jazz – seemed so perfectly matched that we decided to do two things. First, give this release a proper remix for every dj of class. Second, do our very best for a future co-op.

With this record we have fulfilled mission number one. We asked the much appreciated eclectic duo Innocent Sorcerers to do whatever they felt was right with this song, and their 'Off Beat' remix is exactly what we didn't know we wanted – a broken piano-groover with plenty of soulful humour.

Second call was Karizma, a producer with a sound that has captivated the whole spectra of house-lovers for years. A remixer with seriously sensible ears. We didn't even have to ask before he replied 'I'll do dub, that's ok?' While listening to his 'Darq Dub' you'll know exactly what we're trying to say.

The last mix is by Sumo themselves, adding their own meaty dub. This one goes deeper than the roots of the holy oaks in France. Think Afro. Think disco. Somewhere in space.

I do like this one, particularly the jazz mix (Innocent Sorcerers). - Dimitri From Paris

I played Lovebeat dub in St Louis, and I played both the dub and Karizma dub in San Francisco. The crowd went nuts. Excellent track from Sumo, and I'm gonna be banging this for a while. - Jojo Flores
