Mind Fair 'Steppin’ Out' (Rogue Cat Sounds)

Joe Jackson’s 1982 earworm gets a crafty Balearic makeover from Mind Fair boys Dean and Ben, with bassist Derek Holt supplying a super-tight live groove to go with the tropical beats and sunshine synths. It’s all accompanied by a euphoric vocal which is far removed from the 80s party vibe of the original. ‘Steppin Out’ will be released as a two-part split on 7” vinyl – just like we used to see on many extended disco releases before digital was a thing – with a more vocal part one on the A-side and a sublimely dubbed out part two for DJs on the flip. Without doubt, this will make its way on to many a vinyl purist’s must-have list in the future and will be going for dirty money on Discogs soon after its release, so make sure you grab one while you’ve still got the chance.
