STRANGE LOVING release – a rework of Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse’s classic Burnout out now on ITUNES

STRANGE LOVING and Gallo Record Company have released a brand new single – a rework of Sipho Hotstix Mabuse’s classic ‘Burnout’ which became the first major crossover hit in South Africa in 1984 selling more than 500 000 copies.

A spur of the moment idea, sparked by a friend who thought it would be a great idea to revive an old classic from the past, STRANGE LOVING was inspired by the 90s Daft Punk method of production to rework this 80s release into a silky offering with a hint of seduction.

Sipho remarked that he was delighted with the reworking of the track by these young artists and that it keeps to the integrity of the original song

Re-editing the track by using the exact sampling from the original record seeing as the separates from the original over 30 years back couldn’t be provided by the label, STRANGE LOVING added some fresh percussion and hats as well as their signature bassline which shines through in the end result.
