ONE of Warrington's most successful homegrown bands are taking a step back to reflect on their journey through the music scene.

Latchford's The Winachi Tribe are re-releasing their debut single, Time For Love, to mark its fifth anniversary.

The song has been given a 'thumping update' by acclaimed producer David Tolan, who has worked with the likes of Primal Scream, Tears For Fears and The Charlatans.

And to go full circle, the reworked and remixed track is being launched by the record label which kickstarted the electro funk band's journey – Manchester's A1M Records.

Warrington Guardian:

The Winachi Tribe's five-year journey has taken them from Latchford to the Hollywood Hills.

Along the way, they have shared stages with the likes of Grand Master Flash, Sugarhill Gang and Furious Five and The Happy Mondays, picked up US songwriting awards and appeared in the LA Times.

David Tolan said: "It’s been great working with The Winachi Tribe on the reworking of Time For Love. My inspiration was some Giorgio Moroder arpeggiator synths and string runs reminiscent of very late 70s funk and disco records made by Chic and Sister Sledge.

"Hopefully this rework has sympathetically fused all these elements with the bands distinctive signature sound to produce something new, fresh and vibrant to uplift people's spirits and shine a little ray of light to help us though the darker days."

Paul Travis, founder of A1M Records, added: "From the streets of Warrington to the suburbs to Hollywood, The Winachi Tribe have been on an amazing journey. Were delighted to have kickstarted that journey five years ago."

The new version of Time For Love is out on December 4.
