Lil­ly­Good Par­ty 004! – Onward International’s / Elberti­na “Twinkie” Clark’s 

Since launch­ing in the sum­mer of 2017, Alex Attias’ s edit-focused Lil­ly­Good Par­ty label has con­sis­tent­ly deliv­ered the goods. It helps that Attias approach to re-edit­ing mir­rors orig­i­nal scalpel leg­ends like Dan­ny Kriv­it – think killer rearrange­ments with no cheap pro­duc­tion trick­ery – but this would mean noth­ing if the select­ed mate­r­i­al was below-par. This time round he’s on a Latin-tinged jazz-funk and dis­co tip, first team­ing up with broth­er Stephane Attias to deliv­er a superb, horn-heavy rework of Onward International’s 1985 all-day­er slay­er “Foot in the Door”. It’s a right­eous and funk-fueled affair guar­an­teed to bring a dose of sul­try sun­shine to any par­ty. On the flip, Alex goes solo to lov­ing­ly extend Elberti­na “Twinkie” Clark’s 1981 gospel dis­co-soul treat “Awake O Zion”, with pre­dictably fine results.
