REVIEW: Whirlpool Productions - From Disco To Disco (Remastered) on Universal Music Germany

Source: Discogs.com

Whirlpool Productions 20 years ago conquered the charts. 1st place in Italy! Top Ten in the Benelux countries! "From: Disco To: Disco" was surprising hit for the Cologne experimental electronic music trio. In fact, Eric D. Clark (the San Diego-based pianist and gospel vocalist), Justus Köhncke (studio professional and biggest Chic fan) and Hans Nieswandt (Spex editor and bassist) just wanted to work on their LP "Dense Music". The Veuve Cliquot was already open, Köhncke started this beat at the Can-Studio in Weilerswist, the R & B samples sung "Looove!" And Eric D. Clark improvised over a piano motif he had sung in his head for years: "From disco to disco, town across town, everybody is trying to get down! "

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Whirlpool Productions have manage without even trying or having it as aspiration to produce one of the biggest classics of all time. From Disco To Disco is back once again after many remixes in the past for new career in 2017. The package includes the vibrant and still so funky and ultra sexy original version Remastered with crispy beats and wonderful atmosphere that keeps all the elements from the first take without any edit allowing the listener to enjoy the actual recording that sounds so perfect because it is imperfect and packed with mistakes. The new remixes are using generously the cool vocals and the brilliant unfinished piano melody that gives you goosebumps instantly.  Tiefschwarz never disappoint and this remix has rolling basslines, strong percussion, awesome application of the love vocal sample while on top the full vocal sounds so witty and clever working perfectly to create the right beach bar atmosphere and relax you while you are jamming on the disco floor. Adam Port Remix provides slower pulsating exotic grooves with nice organic percussion, sci-fi futuristic atmosphere, new synthy hooks to raise tension, distorted vocals and the shivering piano riff. You can call it deep hypnotic even trancy and mysterious. Lastly Hot Chip deliver the 10 minutes marathon with complete new vocals and fantastic arrangement with recreation of the classic melody and new live like feeling that carry the listener away and you may think that 10 minutes duration is not enough. Is it worth it to re-release it or sacrilege? #PureGold Love IT   [/content]
