Los Angeles based Mestizo Beat release “Featherbed Lane” their debut single for Colemine Records on February 2nd 2018. The 45 is a cover version of a track lifted from Mongo Santamaria’s 1971 album Mongo’s Way. Mestizo Beat apply their fusion of Afro-beat, Afro-Cuban, Funk, and R&B to the single the result being an astounding reworking of the original recording. This is a dance floor filler if ever I heard one! The B side “Handcuffed to the Shovel” is more quality Afro-beat. This will be released on Pink Vinyl (Limited to 300) and MP3.
