It’s been bothering me that we haven’t had any Weatherall for too long. And then I got a request asking “Can I have an E please”. Didn’t see it for a few days as Google was sure it was a dubious drugs reference and stuck in in the spam folder. Instead, it was for some Espiritu as mixed by Andy Weatherall in his Sabres Of Paradise days.


Espiritu were signed by Heavenly in 1992. Initially, a collaboration between Vanessa Quinones and Chris Taplin (ex-Frazier Chorus), this was cracking house music with South American rhythms. The featured tracks date from 1993 when Espiritu looked as though they would achieve a breakthrough into the mainstream. But then it all went quiet for a year or so. When Espiritu returned it had evolved into a solo vehicle for Quinones in collaboration with others, particularly Tin Tin Out, and the music had declined into cheesy house.


But from 1993, here are tracks from the “Conquistador” single, mixed by Sabres of Paradise – mixes No.s 1 and 2. I’ll save Mix No. 3 for when we finally get to E … got to keep you reading somehow.
