about

Originally conceived as a digital-only loosie, XL Middleton’s “Can’t Help The Way I Feel” was first released on wax in 2015 by Ghost’s Spectrum Records label.
The Parisian DJ/Producer was just opening the doors of his label and saw the potential in XL’s track, a modern boogie gem that lives in the gray area between edit and full-on original song.
A rare sample flip from XL Middleton combines with his signature lead synth lines, keys and pads.
What Ghost saw in “Can’t Help The Way I Feel” proved to be on point too - The original 7” sold out, was repressed a few years later, and now both pressings fetch heavy sums in the second hand market.
To this day the song remains a staple in boogie/funk sets worldwide, and was even sampled by DJ Fresh for his Tonite Show album with Jay Worthy & Mitchy Slick.

Thus, a third repress has been overdue.
This time, Spectrum goes all out, reuissuing “Can’t Help The Way I Feel” with full color artwork jacket, and a new b-side by Ghost himself, “Deeper Love”, not included on previous pressings.
“Deeper Love” features Ghost’s signature cinematic late 80s-inspired synth riffs, which take cues from soundtracks of the era as well as UK street soul.
