Dimitri From Tokyo

Dancing Fool EP

About this item

Everyone's favourite globetrotting disco socialite is back in the house, bringing with him three tasty duty free treats from the land of the rising sun. So pop a cork and drop a shoulder, it's not every day you get down with Dimitri. Up first is a heavy duty groove you might recognise from Village People's "My Roommate. Dim adds one of his killer drum tracks with consummate ease, then extends the arrangement and works the filters like only he can as you get taken on a trip to disco heaven. Flip the disc for a killer looped up version of The Trammps' "Disco Inferno", which Dim revisits to remind us that beyond the now cliche chorus, there's plenty to be loved in this raw and soulful disco groove. Naturally, there are shredding guitars, roving clav, jazzy rhodes noodles, and red hot horns, not to mention that Jimmy Ellis is in fine fine voice on this cut. Massive rework from the Frenchman. Lastly, Dim takes on a big number from the Larry list, reworking Paradise Garage favourite "Bad Mouthin" by the Motown Sounds. Anyone who owns an original copy will tell you that this is one tough sucker to mix, so first off, Dim's straightened things out a little and beefed up the drums for contemporary DJ use. Dim then gets to work with the scalpel, pimping the arrangement for maximum floor burning intensity. All the gorgeous and intricate instrumental parts are EQ'd to the max to give them the limelight they deserve. Immersive and unstoppable disco magic which will be right at the front of the box for months to come.
