1100 copies of this were pressed and it is already sold out and in this day and age that is absolutely incredible. New York's Rvng Intl. have been doing their own thing with aplomb for a couple of years now and they've never been one to follow trends - although it does seem that popularity has caught up with them somewhat - and everything from hand screen-printing the record sleeves to pressing their singles on the best quality wax makes them an absolute breath of fresh air in these troubled times. Jacques Renault - a member of the group Runaway who just released the absolutely monster track Brooklyn Club Jam - is fairly new to the scene and this EP should elevate him to a higher place amongst the disco cognoscenti and I'm not sure what the original source material for this is but it does go rather well with the Fela tune below. A great record from somoeone to keep your eye our for.
