The tingle of pleasure before the real head rush.
In truth, none was required: it doesn't take a genius to appreciate the instant appeal of these immediately gratifying surges of pure disco pleasure. Played by every discerning DJ
in Ibiza and far beyond, 'Running''s first side, 'Intro', is joyous French-filtered house built beneath a swirling vocal. The other side, 'Most Wanted', marries filthy Giorgio Moroder-ish synth squiggles to strutting funk, but, you know, in a really good
way. It's difficult to overstate this record's brilliance. You can play 'Intro' and 'Most Wanted' again and again and again but you'll never get bored. What's more, it's proof, if it were needed, that when they can be bothered, Paris' dance titans are still utterly invincible.
