About this item
Vive La Musique brings you an official reissue and rework of the unique and highly sought after Zouk track 'Tabala Mouv'. The song is is the standout composition from the ultra-rare 'Tabala' series, released on vinyl in the mid 80s. After many months of searching, label head Aroop Roy managed to track down songwriter and producer, Maurice Agad, to the Caribbean island of Martinique. The 12" includes the original track and two brand new versions, making a special package that many are touting as one of the soundtracks of the summer. In the original, Detroit-esque keys and a Balearic beat captivate you from the opening bars and uplifting vocals and a euphoric horn section combine to transport you to an idyllic paradise.
Aroop Roy steps up the tempo and flips the groove for a trademark rework that will have universal appeal to house, disco and tropical music fans. The release is made complete with a subtle extended edit from Truccy. The package is presented with beautiful full cover artwork, limited to the first pressing, which is likely to go very quickly.
Patrick says: Though the house DJs will find plenty of use for Aroop Roy's saucy uptempo remix, it's the original that's blowing my mind here. Rolling along at an excellent mid tempo, this tropical tonker is gonna be a smash for the Balearic DJs.
