Another ahead-of-its-time Prelude masterpiece, still played by David Mancuso at The Loft, and plenty of other forward thinking DJs from the old school to the "NU-SKOOL". The vocal side is nothing to get excited about, IMO, so flip this baby over and enjoy the relentless, dark, stark, electronic disco of NYC Disco-Production veterans Eric Matthew and Darryl Payne. It's mostly instrumental, with cool, subliminal vocoded mumblings incorporated into the mix.
If you're an audiophile fanatic like I am, get the white-label promo 12", which was cut at 45rpm, giving it that slight sonic edge over the commercial 33rpm pressing. This record is really well-produced and engineered to begin with, so either version will satisfy...after all, they were both mastered by lacquer-cutting legend Herbie Powers Junior!
