Cool Creations of St Maarten were formed in 1975 by Carlyle Barriteau, Funk Gumbs and Winston Macco. They were all in their last year of High School in St Maarten. The name "CoolCreations" was inspired by Kool and the Gang, one of their off island influences. The band mainly played hotels, local dance clubs and carnival parades and they recorded one LP. These two tracks were taken from that little know but much loved LP which was recorded in San Juan, Puerto Rico (no one can remember the name of the studio). "Wish Upon Love" is a Modern Soul Floater of the highest order that's been a favourite summer joint of mine for years and recently been getting spins by Four Tet and others. The flip is perfect for a Balearic sunset or deep warmup, this is a personal favourite, hope you love it as much as I do.
