DR. DUNKS / BASTEDOS
"Eric Duncan keeps Keeping it cheap with vol 3 of this edits imprint. This time with a cutup from Felix Dickenson (Bastedos) as well as Eric himself. Both killers."
Eric Duncan (of Rub 'N Tug fame) drops number three in his Keep It Cheap series - this time inviting underground UK disco hero 'Foolish' Felix Dickinson to take care of B-side duties. Head and shoulders above the glut of edits out there, these dig much deeper and are purpose built for sweaty club use, rather than tantalizing bedroom bloggers (although these edits will do that too!). "Romanticos" rides the Brit-funk wave, slapping that bass through Modern Romance's 1982 post-punk disco gem "Best Years Of Our Lives". Want something less obvious than Haircut 100, Wham, Spandau's "Chant Number One" or the Clash "Rock The Casbah"? Here's your (not) secret (anymore) dancefloor weapon! On the 'Foolish' Felix side Mr Dickinson does that cosmic disco thing of re-recording a track at the wrong speed - we're talking slow here - making for a treacle-covered slo-mo electroid avant disco affair, again with a hint of new wave. Both sides rock! As with the cult COMBI series, we expect these to sell out in a matter of days - 300 copies only.
