The next release on Isle Of Jura is the first official reissue of Yvonne Archer’s ‘Ain’t Nobody’ 12″, a reggae disco cover of the Chaka Khan classic. Its the first time the 12″ club mix has been available since the original release in 1983 (unless you want to part with £100 for a copy on Discogs) . I play a lot of Reggae and Dub at my weekly gigs so doing some reissues has been something i’ve wanted to do since starting the label back in 2016. Its really a question of the stars aligning when it comes to licensing and through a mutual connection was fortunately able to link up with producer John Rubie and license a number of songs, the first of which to see the light of day is ‘Ain’t Nobody’.
I did two edits, a main edit pulling back on the electric guitar in the original and a Dub using some subtle delays and sparse use of the vocal to let the killer groove work its magic.
