The adrenaline-fuelled groove machine that is The Winachi Tribe release a remix of their debut single ‘Time For Love’ through A1M Records. Initially released five years ago, David Tolan (Primal Scream, Tears For Fears) has given it a thumping update ahead of the release of their debut album in early 2021.
Lead singer, Liam Croker‘s voice is a gritty fusion of the eccentricity of George Clinton, delivered with Shaun Ryder attitude, tempered with a white northern soul funk-rock style, reminiscent of Sly Stone. ‘Time For Love’ is full of swagger and funk. Adding to their unique funkadelia sound is acclaimed percussionist Inder Goldfinger who is best known for his work with Ian Brown and Fun-Da-Mental with his neo-classical tribal rhythmic style.
A 5-year unstoppable journey has led The Winachi Tribe to the suburbs of Hollywood from the urban streets of Manchester through relentless hard work and a good slice of hustling. They’ve jet-set around the world, wowing at festivals and played with Grand Master Flash, Sugarhill Gang & Furious Five and The Happy Mondays. Along the way, they’ve received global radio support and clocked up hundreds of thousands of streams, picked up acclaimed U.S. songwriting awards and appeared in the L.A. Times

“Working with Winachi is an absolute pleasure; their enthusiasm and commitment to their art/songs/funk/soul is infectious and inspiring.”
