The original vocal reggae version of DJ Hutchy’s “Jamaican Gigalo” revealed a distinct go-go influence. So it’s no surprise that the flip side of the “Gigalo” 12-inch on Grapevine Records features a “Go Go Vocal” remix: On it, go-go percussion is seamlessly worked into the spare techno-riddims of the original. The song’s original reggae, “the version,” and the hiphop mix are currently available at Live & Learn, Afro-Caribe Records, and Tower; the go-go mix will be out within two weeks.
