I can remember the first time I ever heard “Dancer” by Gino Soccio. It a disco epiphany that won’t leave my mind anytime soon; my brain completely melted beneath the swelling builds that lead up to belting vocals that I feel directly led to the existence of modern-day disco bands like Escort. In a word: Gino Soccio is a master.
“Michael” by Bufi & La Royale gives me a lot of the same feelings, except the output of the build is completely different. While there aren’t any vocals really threading the track, the punchy instrumentals are there to take you on a ride, where the vehicle is a terrific four-by-four beat inspired by GS himself.
Listen, and groove.
