About this item
Best Records change lanes for the summer season, switching away from their recent boogie predilections to serve up two classic Balearic disco burners this week, starting with this bomb. Produced in 1983 by Easy Going member Peter Micioni (whose studio skills added serious weight to tracks by Gary Low, Traks, Mike Francis and Amii Stewart), "Turn Me Loose" and "My Design" pressed here in mixed fashion (as was the original release) take us for a night drive downtown for a full fourteen minutes. Slow disco beat, sultry guitars, emotive chords, delicate keys and a high drama vocal, this has every single ingredient needed for a Balearic classic. If you've never heard it in a club, this makes for the perfect set opener, end of night swayer or mid-set direction changer, and it's absolutely brilliant. Alongside the full fourteen minute bomb, we get a shortened version from German born Ibiza resident SIRS, whose ace productions have been championed by DJ Harvey right from the very beginning.
