peter croce takes the baton back from blair french for rocksteady discoís 9th release entitled agape. its vision is similar to standing still is an illusion, with peterís unique take on this afrobrazilian deep house threetracker.
kampana delivers once again with a pair of dance floor gems that will please lovers of funk, disco and gospel alike. on the a-side, aroop roy means serious business with reason to dance. driven by an outrageous slap bass, infectious horn stabs and a limb-shaking vocal refrain, its no surprise that this has been the secret weapon of his recent sets around the world. on the flip, detroit native peter croce, fresh from the huge success of his razor-n-tape ep, comes in equally strong, with the gospel-fuelled disco cut just like heaven. the track builds patiently, lingering on a raw disco groove, honing in on a powerful brass section and spirit-lifting vocals, and eventually climaxing with epic strings and thunderous piano.
peter croce has been making some noise lately with his rocksteady disco party and record label, and here he brings his burgeoning rework sensibilities to rnt with a varied pack of revisions straight from detroit! on the ecstatic uptempo face-melting tip, we have spirit dance and get up and boogie, either of which are sure to burn down any disco. then there s the hard-working, grown-ass groove of proletariat blues, and made in china, a beautiful slow-burner for those early evening spins or late-night comedowns.
after 2 years as rocksteady disco head honcho, peter croce makes his 12inch debut with revival, which features a speech by rev. william barber ii as well as peters own electric bass performance. the a side is the main mix while the flip gives us beat and a capella versions. early support from jamie, (chicago), chuck daniels (detroit), ladymonix (la / detroit), stacey hotwaxx hale (detroit), and pontchartrain (detroit)
