For the next installement of Manc institution El Diablo’s Social Club’s ‘To Rack & Ruin’ edits series comes from local Manc lads Out of the Basement bring us two summer bombs. These tracks have both been kicking around for over a year now in slightly different forms but now we bring them to you fully refined and suitably mastered heavily for the dancefloor.

Out of the Basement are Steve Leggat and James Ellis. Both have been involved in Manchesters’ colourful music scene – amongst other things Steve has been running Manchesters legendary Beat Club with The Stone Roses Mani and James is the founder of Manchesters now defunct deep house label ‘Drenched’.

Side A is a splendid edit of lost soul classic with beats and instruments added for full effect.

Side B is a sleazy slo mo cut up of the Brothers Johnson version of the summer anthem Strawberry Letter 23.

Early DJ support comes from Pete Herbert, PBR Streetgang, Crazy P and Begin.

This hand stamped release is limited to 300. You’ll only end up sorry if you don’t buy one, you just know you will.
