Minnie Ripperton re-rubs are hardly a new commodity in electronic music. As far ago as last month, Strictly Rhythm released ”Inside My Love”, a track that paid homage to Ripperton’s track of the some name with sure fire distinction, complimenting it cleverly while also being sure not to detract from its original merits. What is unique then, is the soulful handling of her tracks when it comes to how they’re manipulated in electronic music. And much like London buses, here comes another poignant reminder of her talents, with French label Goldmin Records calling on ”Lovemade” to bring the heat.

And boy, does it do that. Essentially, it’s a re-working of the still fresh sounding ”Lovin You”, only it’s carefully tweaked to give off a modern sheen that maintains the soul whilst simultaneously adding enough zest to make it light up the floor. It’s the twinkling keys that really grabbed our attention, and – much akin to the original – it’s a celestial sounding track, albeit one that’s underpinned by a gentle, rubbery kick. And by the time the vocal is properly let out of the bag, it’s sure to prompt many a euphoric moment on the floor. As an added bonus, there’s an extended mix too. Music enthusiasts of all persuasions are sure to lap this one up in their droves. 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
