Newban's deep, fluid Jazz Funk 'Magic Lady' was but one of the eight stellar tracks on their highly spoken of, 1977, eponymous album. It's described as a jazzier Earth Wind & Fire set, with a warm and unique voice. I'll definitely be hunting it down, more especially after listening to this fantastic edit from Brighton's DJ Greymatter of their already mentioned 'Magic Lady'.

If you are a fan of Mr Bongo records, as I happen to be, then you'll already know Greymatter from his 'Brazilian Beats & Pieces' compilation as well as their radio show on Samurai FM. I also rather like and played a fair bit of his remix of a Novalima track, also for Mr Bongo. Graham (to his mum) is also the main man and founder behind the Unique Uncut label & club night - Basement Soul. Go check out his myspace for further info, more music and enjoy this extremely beautiful & exclusive rework which he has given to ANOE and you.
