Part Four in a series of 12” vinyl EP’s celebrating 30 years of Z Records and the legendary Dave Lee. Featuring sought-after tracks and remixes by, Joey Negro, Horse Meat Disco, The Sunburst Band, Mistura, The Revenge and The Reflex.

First up, Dave Lee joins forces with London's super disco collective, Horse Meat Disco to rework the classic, 'Candidate For Love'. This 2014 debut collaboration for Dave and HMD also features long-time Sunburst Band vocalists Diane Charlemagne and Donna Gardier.

Kendra's original downtempo version of 'Smile' was a monster on the UK soul scene. JN gives it a housed up mix for the A2 with a clear nod to the classic Suburban sound of Musto and Simonelli.

On the B side, South African goddess Letta Mbulu has one of her classics, ‘Kilimanjaro’, reworked by edit royalty The Revenge before The Sunburst Band - The Secret Life of Us gets that magic touch from another standout re-edit wizard The Reflex.
