— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

BABY DON’T STOP.

This is certainly one of the tracks (and remixes) of 2010. Baby Don’t Stop is from the prolific hand of Nu-Disco pioneer Lindstrøm and is the fantastic result of a collaboration between himself and the vocalist/lyricist Christabelle (A.K.A Solale). Their long-player Real Life Is No Cool is a prime slice of 1980’s boogie and nu-disco joy  The album itself has been knocking around the producers mind for a while and came to fruition only after Christabelle took the tracks that make up Lindstrøm’s classic opus You Go Where I Go To and dropped her own vocals and lyrics over the top. A rather chaotic process ensued, but what a good one it is!  (Check out this review here for full album highlights and what not)

With all that good karma knocking around, it’s no wonder Baby Don’t Stop is an absolute dancefloor monster, and not just for disco nerds or hipster dancefloors. It feels like something out of a 1980, a lost acetate from one of Quincy Jones sessions with the Brothers Johnson or George Benson. Don’t be fooled though, this is not a retro re-rub for the sake of it, the Nu-Disco groove that made Lindstrøms’ collaborations with Prins Thomas so compelling and hypnotic is still there, tight yet liquid at the same time.

It’s a great platform then for remixers of certain vintage to get their chops around, which luckily, two of the best have done, Aeroplane takes the track and bolsters it’s cosmic brushstrokes and amps them up, taking a similar approach to their awesome remix of Williams Blood by Grace Jones last year. While Aeroplane fly through the cosmos, the Idjut Boys Re-edit ramps up the groove, bending and twisting an already great dancefloor track into something that a John Morales 12″ might sound like. (More to come on this guy) It’s a track you could put on in an empty room and be pretty sure the dancefloor would be full up soon after. Good work boys. And keep an eye out for more mixes of this one, it’s got the lot.
