dancing the night away
David Drake says
"It's there a greater joy in life than total immersion of feeling,
losing yourself completely and pushing aside all cynicism
It's why you drink, dance, and throw yourself into a vast,
unknowable nightlife despite the uncertainty,
the possibility of failure and of heartbreak;
It's why we love the night away. Tiedye, a duo known for
a nearly flawless string of gorgeous tropical-inflected
tracks on the Italians Do It Better label, have taken on the task
of remixing DJ Kaos' already-excellent "Love the Nite Away,"
and effortlessly re-framed the striking vocals into
a shimmering pop masterpiece.
The bongos are pure Balearic disco,and the gruff, assertive,
and sincere vocals firmly in the tradition of Italo classics.
But the end result is a passionate dancefloor
slow burn of intense beauty, an incomparable summer soundtrack.
