Clinton People Power In The Disco Hour(Meccico)
People Power In The Disco Hour[I](Meccico)[/I]
Taking as a prototype [a]Norman Cook[/a]’s stellar work with [a]Cornershop[/a]’s comparatively dull and plodding ‘Brimful Of Asha’ original, a trio of remixers tackle Clinton‘s underwhelming ‘People Power…’ in efforts to spice it up for potential dancefloor smash-hit globetrotting. The Wiseguys speed it up and add a funky elastic band squelch that sets it on par with Beck‘s ‘Mixed Bizness’ in the Prince-miming stakes, Los Amigos Invisibles slow it down and highlight the, “lean on the horn/ There’s double-parking on the dancefloor” refrain for a deep, warm, sensual, bell-bottom-pantsuit-slit-down-to-there spin, and Romanthony takes it out for
a breakdance under the glitter ball with giddy arse-liberating bass and zaps of fizzy synth. Even with enthusiastic DJ power buttressing this baby up, however, its ‘fro remains too flat to fly. If you know what we mean.
