The Kalita sound is becoming more clearly defined with each release, as the London-based label continues to mine the rich history of overlooked disco, funk and soul from America and Africa. Darryl Douglas Inc. originally released "Holding On" in 1981, and when you listen to it it's no wonder that second hand copies used to fetch dizzying prices. It's a perfect get down jam that no doubt used to delight switched on diggers with money to burn, but a track this perfectly crafted for good times should never be confined to the ivory tower of the collectors. "Jesus Is The Light" is the original B side, a slower devotional soul cut with gospel undertones.
