It's been a while but it's time for another Villa's Vinyl Vault! In case you're just tuning in: in this category Villa share some of their favourite classics with us - vinyl only of course! This time we're in for a classic disco treat, remixed by legend Nile Rodgers.
ARTIST: Sister Sledge, Nile Rodgers, Bernard Edwards
ALBUM: Lost In Music 12"
RELEASE DATE: 1984
THANG SAYS: This particular track is built around two parts, a classic verse/chorus - verse/chorus, that are each introduced by a buildup - the last one of the two revolving into a repetitive groove that could just go on for hours. Each instrument and vocal is carefully layered on top of each other, forming a timeless harmony.
Several renowed DJ's have remixed this track, e.g. The Glimmers, Larry Levan, Gay Marvine, The Revenge, Dimitri From Paris and of course Nile rodgers and Bernard Edwards featured below. It's impossible to stand still to this song, a perfect ending to a great party!
