About this item
To accompany the "New York Cake" LP reissue, also available this week from the proto-Italo supergroup that is Kano, we have a tidy remix 12" featuring Dr. Packer and Mr. Master mixes of two of the group's most pleasurable of hits.
"Unconditional Lover" is off the LP "No Cents...Go Funky!" which marked the gleeful return of the band in 2021, some 38 years since their previous release. Whilst dividing the critics due to the omission of original vocalist Glen White, it's a worthy addition to their catalogue of which the Pet Shop Boy-indebted, "Unconditional Lover" is one of the better moments. "I'm Ready" is taken off the original 1980s self titled LP. Here, Dr. Packer and Mr. Master give both tracks a modern makeover, filling out the frequency range with the kind of dazzling instrumentation we're used to off the Glitterbox releases the two producers regularly populate. It's full of that authentic disco flavour, relentlessly spiraling into the disco ball; but all elements sparkle with an up-to-date flair: DSP fx and weighty mastering setting them apart from their 80s cousins. Recommended!
