The latest music video by Warrington-via-Leeds electro funk six-piece The Winachi Tribe has already clocked up 5,000 watches on YouTube.
Channelling the hypnotic grooves of late 80s and early 90s acid house, US producer Mark Pistel’s #TimeForLove (A1M Records) reworking evokes the musical textures of the Haçienda without leaning too heavily on its myths. These hipshakingly peachy beats splice with the original‘s funky guitar licks while retaining its infectious lust for dancefloor boogies.
The video, courtesy of Oldham-based filmmaker Shari Denson, mesmerises by depicting the full experience of touring as an independent music act in the 21st century – from Aberdeen to Manchester, taking in red brake lights and drizzled window panes, as well as the band’s packed headlining show at Manchester’s Gorilla.
Fusing live footage with motorway landscapes, party vibes with panoramas, bustling crowds with busy streets and moving feet with snapshots of the M60, Denson’s images are propelled by the hi-hats, minimalistic beats and mellifluous synths of the remix, crafted by Hercules And Love Affair’s Mark Pistel, who lists Grace Jones among his enviable production authorship.
The band’s next show will be at Portsmouth’s Victorious Festival on Bank Holiday Sunday 28 August, 2016.
