Henri-Pierre Noel x the Reflex remix

"Wah Wah 45s return to the 12” format to bring you three incredible re-works from French disco don The Reflex, for our very own legendary Canadian/Haitian keyboard wiz Henri-Pierre Noel, plus an additional remix exclusively on the digital version.

Henri's "Funky Spider Dance" is a percussion heavy bomb that The Reflex has turned into an even more dance-friendly destroyer. His rework of "A Fifth of Beethoven" takes its time to build into another heavy hitter. Last, but not least,The Reflex’s Revision of "Back Home… Sweet Home" is a modern Island Funk masterpiece with organ and tropical guitar riffs making way for sunny brass stabs all underpinned by foot friendly beats.

The original versions of "Funky Spider Dance" and "Back Home… Sweet Home" can be found on Henri’s "One More Step" LP, and his take of "A Fifth of Beethoven" was recently available on 7-inches of wax – all on Wah Wah 45s of course. "The Reflex Revisions" all appear here together on vinyl, in fact anywhere, for the very first time!"
