Back in 1982, Q picked up some interplanetary frequencies and laid down a gamechanger. "The Voice Of Q" delivers a discoid 4/4, spiced up with syncopated electro funk hats, a garbled sequence, slap bass, sci fi synth tones and killer vocoder work. The original mix introduces some peppy vocals for those who feel frisky, while the B-side keeps things stripped back for cybernetic dancefloor freaks. The previously unreleased "Keep It Strong" shifts gears a little, packing punchy piano licks over a shuffling garage groove to totally nail the proto house vibe. Warm, light and euphoric, this shoulder roller should sit perfectly next to "Casa Beat", "Free Yourself" and Soft House Company.
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: Back in stock and sounding better than ever. This supersedes all the other previous bootlegs. As timeless a slice of Italian greatness as one could possibly get. One of those every home (read: DJ) needs one records.
