Espiritu - Conquistador 1993

Heavenly HVN 28CD

This is a classic example from my collection. A strange CD by a band nobody's ever heard of? Conquistador isn't a bad tune at all but it's not something worth shouting about. The tracklist includes an Extended Instrumental that is the same timestamp as the 7" Radio Edit? The sticker on the front boldly proclaims the inclusion of an Andy Weatherall club mix and if you are a fan of the Sabres Of Paradise sound, you'll love it... all tweakin' acid 808's, etc. But what has that got to do with Soul?

OK, first off, I gotta 'fess up. I have a lot of club music too. When Soul & Dance spawned House with Steve 'Silk' Hurley, I followed that road too. I bought into the Rave scene, Jungle (a bit) and UK Garage. I am still very fond of US House & Uplifting Vocal Garage. Don't let it put you off, this little number has a beauty included. I bought this for No Creo Mas which is a beautiful piece of Brazilian lounge bar shuffle. Diversity my friends, embrace it with open arms. Enjoy!

  1. As soon as I saw the name Espiritu my tired old tribes of neurons started dancing around my brain forming the words "that Sabres Of Paradise mix you used to have"...I loved this record, all the mixes were excellent though of course the AW & Co mix was the stand-out for about 303s on stun!

    Heavenly were putting out some pretty amazing records at this time as a quick look through their discography on Discogs tells me!

    Over two and a half years later and the links still work! You sir, are a star!
