Aussie outfit Midlife has been one of the success stories of 2019, with their psychedelic take on jazz-funk fusion earning them a swathe of high profile fans (Gilles Peterson included). Here they make their bow on Heavenly with "How Long Does It Take", a heavy dancefloor cut rich in driving bass guitar, restless drums, cute keys and dreamy flute lines. On the flipside the track is given a makeover by Afro-cosmic/cosmic disco originals Daniele Baldelli and Marco Dionigi. They first offer up a chugging, funk-rock tinged cosmic disco "Remix" that makes great use of crunchy swamp funk guitar licks and those fluttering flute motifs, before offering a more druggy, synthesizer-fuelled "Malba Remix" that blissfully rises and falls throughout its mesmerizing duration.
