This 10" should be of interest to anyone who likes their music soulful and upbeat. Produced by Juan Laya and Jorge Montiel, it features two delicious but contrasting cuts. "You Can't Beat It" has all the makings of a 21st century boogie anthem. With its parping horns, slick synths, fat slap bass and celebratory vocal, it sounds like the sort of record Teena Marie or Gwen McRae would have released back in '82. "It's Got To Be Music", by contrast, is deeper and sleepier, Andre Espeut's seductive vocal matching the sparse, low-slung soul groove. While not as thrillingly upbeat as the A, it's just as good.
