Track: Ultra Flava (Original Flava)
Artist: Heller & Farley Project
Ultra Flava was first produced as a dub version for Ultra Naté's How Long - a track from her 1993 album One Woman's Insanity. Take a listen to Heller & Farley's (mixed under the Fire Island alias) remix of How Long and you'll instantly recognize the genesis of this track:
Slowly but surely the underground scene was buzzing about this mix, requesting a proper release. Two years later, Heller & Farley delivered the goods with the release of Ultra Flava (title paying homage to Ultra Naté') - laying down one of the all time most infectious organ grooves to the delight of DJs and clubgoers worldwide. Moreover, the track is perfectly balanced with first rate percussion elements. There's been many remixes over the years, but nothing has topped the original IMO.
