Danny “Psychemagik” McLewin continues to broaden the scope of his Spacetalk imprint, adding this Euro Disco shuffler to the Soul and Soft Rock of previous releases. Lifted from the B-side of an obscure (naturally) Dutch 7” from 1982, Jaz, Party Dad, and Mudd expertly extend, Dub, and de-cheese (just a tad) the original. Jaz & Party Dad retain the dialogue, which recalls Amadeo`s “Memories”, while Mudd emphasises the Imagination “Body Talk” bass-line, both results slotting into a canon of mellow, Italo / Italo-Not-Italo that might include Girls Can`t Help It, DJ Look, Pat & Pats, Dr Togo, Ginni Gallan (thank you Jerome) , and the (also Dutch) Harvey-endorsed “Starlight” by Risque (I`d been wondering why everyone in Tokyo had started playing this – then Max Essa enlightened me), and appropriately (since Spacetalk is sponsored by Paul Murphy`s operation) those Claremont 56 “Originals”, Flyer, Bandaid`s “Tour Of Italy”, “Radio Rap”, selected way back when by Manchester`s Balearic Godfathers.
