The heat is growing on a new set of Neil Diablo edits released this week on Kat Records. The limited EP, available now from Piccadilly Records, features four hard-to-find tracks given the classic Diablo stretch-aaaaand-relax treatment.
Kicking things off is ‘Cannae Believe’, an Italo / New York dubbed out-disco slo-mo electro-disco cut with synth stabs and ‘Love Is The Message’-esque pads. Next up is ‘Disco Special’, a ‘walking’ mid-tempo melter which drops guitar-led Balearica, funky bass, arpeggiated synths, syncopated hand claps and space toms a-plenty before lifting off into string-filled ecstasy.
On the flip we have ‘For Your Love’ is a slinky 2-step soul gem originally released in 1982 by the Fats Gaines Band and featuring sublime vox by Zorina. Stretched, diced and strung beautifully back together, this has summer anthem written all over it. Finishing things off is ‘Christina Debs, Behind Bars”. Originally out on Ze Records and produced in Detroit by Don Was in 1984, this nu-wave disco chugger adds another dimension to proceedings and this EP feels all the mightier for it.
Rave reactions from the likes of Dave Harvey, Ashley Beedle, Huw Morgan, Tristan da Cunha, Andy Wilson, Jim Baron aka Ron Basejam, Bonar Bradberry, Red Rack ‘Em, Andy Ash, Sean Brosnan, Kev Beadle, and many more.
