    It's an uncredited cover of Modern Romance - Can You Move with different lyrics (or vocal adlibs, whatever). Once you get past - and it's hardly an isolated case in the history of dance music, tho this is unusually brazen - it's a pretty banging cover. And they picked the right tune - Can You Move, with its heavy Latin stylings and loopy disco not disco vibe, is the perfect candidate to update as a proto-freestyle track incorporating bits of everything interesting in NY club musics ca. 1984. Probably slots in somewhere between disco not disco and the electro and early freestyle Jellybean was playing at the Funhouse, tho you could also see it as a spiritual forerunner to something like Willie Colon - Set Fire To Me.

      It's a crime no-one's reviewed this, so I'm going to, because it's one of my most treasured records. Raw, funky and incredibly original, cannot fail to light a fire under any dancefloor. Gloriously mashes up the best of disco, electro, house and latin freestyle, and that unforgettable breakdown in which our plucky hero overcomes a tricky language barrier to get his end away. A joyous slice of the hedonistic melting pot that was New York in the 80s, and absolutely one of the greatest dance records of all time.
