DJ/producer Kungs remix of This Girl has rocketed up the pop & dance charts right across Europe including over a month as the Official #1 in France, has just entered the Official UK Top 10, is on the BBC Radio 1 and Capital FM Playlists and also reverberated around stadiums on David Guettas’ recent tour which feature Kungs as his support act.
The original version of Cookin’ On 3 Burners ‘This Girl was released back in 2009 – and became one of the best loved retro soul hits of the last decade. Taken from the band’s album Soul Messin’, the track went onto cross over massively on the contemporary Northern and Modern Soul scenes – becoming a huge favourite around the world – from Japanese funk clubs to legendary events like The Southport Soul Weekender. Copies of the vinyl 45 began to change hands for serious amounts of money online, and each subsequent repress sold out so quickly Freestyle Records couldn’t keep them on the shelves!
Kylie Auldists’ simply stunning performance is just one factor in this songs amazing appeal, riding on top of the bands mellow, beautiful playing on this incredibly catchy song. You can watch a live performance video of the song HERE
Freestyle have decided to re-release this classic track, coupled with the previously unheard instrumental and acapella versions, which may well bring even more people under the spell of this magical piece of music!
