Alan Fitzpatrick remixes Patrice Rushen’s classic into a modern disco delight
Fitzpatrick revisits and then revitalizes the upbeat original, whipping the underappreciated classic into a Radio 1 Future Anthem with a scrumptiously funky bassline and slightly jazzed-up tempo of 130BPM. What makes it all work, however, is how the English producer preserves the “tender touch” and “gentle heart” of the original, polishing and re-structuring much of its predecessor’s elements without really changing their identity. As much as he’s known for his rave inducing sets and burning techno productions, it’s always a refresher to see someone in Alan’s position to go beyond what’s expected and just to share some of his musical tastes. Let the results speak for themselves.
