CLUB BAND - CLUB IS MY PASSION 12" (BEST ITALY)
Though Club Band’s “Club is My Passion” was written as a radio jingle, it is nonetheless a dancefloor bomb. As was the case in 1987, BEST RECORD ITALY presents the track as a vocal and instrumental version, and in the vocal cut, marimbas dance aside swinging funk guitars as claps fire over pianos and hard hitting disco drums. Brass leads mesmerize the mind before the track drops into a minimal verse, where electro rhythms and slap basslines flow beneath a cool masculine croon, which is at times supported by backing vocal and whispers of funk guitar. During ascendant choruses, erotic screams and diva dreams coalesce as computronic tracers spread out in every direction. And in excising most of the vocals, the accompanying instrumental version pushes ever closer towards dancefloor detonation.
