Days after dazzling 80,000 people in the middle of Chicago with his Elements of Life band, Louie Vega drops another funky disco bomb on an unprepared world.

“Love Having You Around” is the latest single from Louie Vega’s fruitful collaboration with Nervous, culminating in the release this month of Vega’s long-awaited and teased LP NYC Disco. This time he’s joined by legendary vocalists Barbara Tucker and First Choice’s Rochelle Fleming on a positively ridiculous nine remixes, all grooving to the thump of an absolutely nasty bassline. Check the “Mute Horn Dub” here:

Louie Vega talked about the making of “Love Having You Around” with Krystal Rodriguez:

For the NYC Disco album, something interesting that I did was a duet with Rochelle Fleming from First Choice and Barbara Tucker. It was cool because I took someone who was a huge influence and icon from the disco generation, and then I took another influence and icon from the house generation, and combined them on this record called “Love Having You Around,” which was a song that Stevie Wonder wrote many years ago. I’m really excited about it.


“Love Having You Around” is in promo release on Traxsource, worldwide on June 15 2018.
