King Tutt Pays Tribute To Loleatta Holloway
King Tutt just released this tribute to disco diva Loleatta Holloway, who passed away on Monday.
“Burning Up,” samples Holloway’s 1980 hit “Love Sensation” (familiar to every and anybody via Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch’s “Good Vibrations”), dropping pieces of her vocals into the kind of electro-house production Tutt’s been mining ever since he sorta rocket-propelled past the basic club music elements a few years ago. Towards the end, there’s this pretty thrilling bird squawk sound or something? It really sends the track over the edge. According to Tutt, it was made about a year ago and pulled from the archives following news of Holloway’s death.
