2003 Room 5 featuring Oliver Cheatham: Make Luv

Well that artist credit is a bit misleading for a start - 'Make Luv' is a Disco House remix of Oliver Cheatham's 1983 funk soul tune 'Get Down Saturday Night', though the shake up is not major and Cheatham's song is clearly visible through the thin plaster of Room 5's (aka Belgian producer Junior Jack) remix to the extent that he should take lead rather than a supporting role. 'Make Luv' merely loosens the struts of Cheatham's original load to thin out its groove which, with the added aeroplane 'whooosh' samples make its backing track a deadringer for Spiller's 'Groovejet'. Quaint and retro it might be, but 'Make Luv' is a busy tune trying to catch a train that left the platform some years hence.
