"Putting a roomful of people in the moment. Amazing them, surprising them, challenging, even confusing them; pushing, electrifying, loving them; carrying them with you towards a better place. Shaking the dull daylight out of their bones, waking them into their other life."

Has many weak points

just lol. killer groove, superb arrangement. Not Disco at all, Boogie to the bone. Just listen to the rhythm, it's not a generic 4/4 Euro Disco beat. Paradise Garage classic too of course.

Alltime favourite, late Disco tune. Great composition, progressive arrangement, strong vocals, sweet strings. I can't praise this one enough, one for any situation on the dance floor. Played heavily at The Saint and Ice Palace / Fire Island.

"Disco Kicks" is one of the strongest tracks of the late Disco / early HiNRG era I would say. The arrangement is really perfect to get any party to its boiling point. Still works perfectly today. Alltime fave forever!

Cover version of e Ad-Lib's Northern Soul hit. For me one of the sweetest and most beautiful Hi NRG tunes. And it's still pumping anyway. The refrain is a little whack though.

Played at "The Saint" / NYC a lot, obviously.

The Wild Pitch mix of that one is a real banger. RuPauls vocals are cut-up and layered above each other in a dramatic way, creating a magnetic build-up. Yet all this is broken down to the real core elements in a break and built up again. Secret Weapon!

"Mist" is my favourite on here, hidden tune on the CD version. A real banger where you have pounding tribal beats and a hypnotic bassline on top of soothing voices and soft piano & synth sequences... It's these contrasts that make this tune a masterpiece.
