Artist: Ray Okpara
Title: Good Times Pt.1
Cat. #: mobilee 101
A1 – Good Times
A2 – Chi This Wonder Up
B1 – Chi This Wonder Up (Rodriguez Jr. Remix)
It’s just a small sample off the groove platter – a little something to whet your appetite, if you will. And who better to get the juices flowing than mobilee’s own versatile house-maven, Ray Okpara. “Good Times” is the track that sums up the self-titled, album to be released in November. Ray goes full-scale to produce an accurate 11-piece representation of his philosophy on friendship and a good time.
On the flip side you’ll find one of Ray’s darker and more contradictory tracks from the album: “Chi This Wonder Up”. Despite the smoky intro, there’s nothing bleak about this number as it meshes perfectly with the rest of the album by keeping the deep and hypnotic groove grounded on the dance floor.
Rodriguez Jr. fluffs up “Chi This Wonder Up” in his remix with bouncier bass lines, as well as a few other surprises and samples. The album will be followed by a “‘Good Times Album Tour” through Central and South America, Europe and Asia starting in November.
Vinyl lovers can also be part of the good times with a 4-piece front and backside coloured vinyl record plate package featuring 7 tracks from the original LP.
