Much loved songstress Heidi Vogel (The Cinematic Orchestra) lends her fabulous soulful tones on the dazzling single, "Coral Drive Hustler", which hails Ben Smethurst’s new 70’s Disco inspired project, "The Pleasure Principle".

Having cherry-picked some top-class musicians from the London scene to work on the project, including Mike Patto, Faze Action's Robin Lee and Toni Economides, this smashing release ticks all the boxes of an authentic disco stunner.

Ben and co. deliver a shimmering soundtrack of brass, sweeping strings, a funky bass hook, all underpinned by live drums. In addition to the superb original version, Ben amps up the feel-good vibes with a lovely soulful house mix and Toni delivers a smoking disco dub.
