E IS FOR ESPIRITU (PT2)

Espiritu were a latin dance outfit from the early 1990s. Originally associated with Boys Own mixes (even though they were on another label). This post is really for Bonita who has waited patiently since December for Espiritu’s “Francisca”.

 

Espiritu were initially, a collaboration between Vanessa Quinones and Chris Taplin (ex-Frazier Chorus). They had originally come to my attention through the Weatherall remixes of 1993 single “Conquistador” (see Espiritu Pt 1 post). But other Boys Own remixers had previously got their claws on Espiritu, with Farley and Heller working on 1992’s debut single “Francisca”. Very much a feel good tune. Expect South American brass.

 

Here it is original instrumental and remix form:
