1970’s Cloud One disco brilliance and one of P&P’s most well-known cuts gets a much-needed official reissue. A studio project masterminded by the legendary Patrick Adams and P&P Records’ Peter Brown, Cloud One’s ‘Disco Juice’ showcases the genius of Adams’ songwriting and production prowess. A bundle of joy from start to finish, every element is given space and arranged exquisitely from the soaring strings and Venus Dodson’s celestial vocals, to the vibraphone twinkles and power piano keys. Deliriously good grooves.
On the B side, ‘Charleston Hopscotch’ a cosmic funk-fuelled jam bouncing guitar riffs, sweltering synths and piano stabs out to the stratosphere and back again, returning with another Patrick Adam’s masterclass.
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says:
One of the finest underground disco albums ever is "Atmosphere Strut" by Cloud One - the unmatchable project of Patrick Adams and Peter Brown. "Disco Juice" and "Charleston Hopscotch" are two of the finest moments on the LP, and are here presented on a brilliantly pressed 7" which doesn't suffer from any of the background noise present on the 2004 reissue of the LP. Essential stuff for any disco collector.
