Extended Mix exclusively available on Beatport: https://www.beatport.com/release/what-time-is-love-live-at-ssl-mix/1808437
Lifelike and Kris Menace return with another trip into acid house history. This time they rework The KLF’s classic tune What Time Is Love, resulting in an overwhelmingly cool dance record, incorporating the chants, vocals and sirens, as well as the dark synth chords. It’s acid house taken from the vault, and electrocuted back to screaming life with nowadays sounds.
Instant classic again!

"This track was so special to us, as it's from the first dance album I ever bought back in the early 90’s. The KLF always represented this new electronic indie scene who took over the majors, and their album "The White Room” is a real masterpiece for us. When we tracked down Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty to see if they would agree to let us rework "What Time Is Love?" I wasn’t expecting any answer. Incredibly, not only did I receive a mail from Bill himself, but also a "thanks for sending this”, ending the mail with "you'll hear from us, be certain of that. Hope it is warmer where you are than here, yours Bill”. We couldn't have dreamt of a better answer. From then it all moved really fast and here we are now, introducing the brand new reworked version" - Lifelike & Kris Menace
Lifelike & Kris Menace rework of the legendary What Time Is Love will be exclusively available on Beatport July 18th.
