Heads Records - South African Disco-Dub Edits



Released: 11th May 2018


Soundway follows its scorching ‘gumba fire’ selection with some more sure-fire disco burners; this 4-track, dancefloor-orientated EP draws its tracks from the brilliant but short-lived Heads label out of South Africa.

Here, Starlight's original track "Picnic" (a single whose B side "Picnicing", featured on ‘Gumba Fire’) joins edits by New York's JKriv (Deep & Disco Recordings / Razor-N-Tape) & Frankie Francis (Sofrito Sound), whose magic touch on 2017's edit of Steve Monite ‘Only You’ was one of Soundway's most popular releases of 2017. The Heads label lasted a brief two years between 1982 & 1984. Started & run by the late South African producer & singer Emil Zoghby, it released only a handful of records before folding. The early 1980s in the country was a time when disco was starting to fade into what was becoming known as Bubblegum: pop music aimed at the black population of South Africa.
