FULL FLAVA · REFRESHED

Dome Records
Oct. 1, 2021


Over the past two years Full Flava, led by UK producer/songwriter Rob Derbyshire, have released a series of well received remixes of key songs from their 20-year history. Working with a stellar line-up of US and UK female vocalists – including CeCe Peniston, Chantay Savage, Carleen Anderson, Donna Gardier and Incognito’s Joy Rose – they cover a wide range of styles from Latin to disco, soulful house to soul-jazz. “Refreshed” is a 2CD collection of remixes together with new recordings like “Get Down Saturday Night”, a new take on an Eighties club favourite, with a powerful soul vocal from Chantay Savage, and Rod Temperton’s “Love X Love” featuring Izzy Chase, with a Latin-flavoured mix by Incognito.

Among the most streamed Full Flava recordings are “September”, also featuring Chantay Savage, remixed by Sunlight Square; “You Are The Universe” featuring CeCe Peniston, remixed by Michele Chiavarini; “Was That All It Was”, a disco era favourite featuring Carleen Anderson, given the soulful house treatment by Micky More and Andy Tee; and the Stevie Wonder composition “Betcha Wouldn’t Hurt Me”, with Donna Gardier on vocals. Blue Lab Beats bring a soul-jazz twist to “Stories”, featuring Carleen Anderson.
