First Choice - First Choice Theme (Paul Simpson Remixes) (BRSPEC04)
Those keen on yellow 7" singles will be keen to hear about these two new cuts of spangly disco from Paul Simpson, pulling no punches in his reworking of 70s soul royalty First Choice and their breakout single, 'First Choice Theme'. Hooked up by the unmatched Brookside Records, this release is the happy result of Simpson's longtime job as a top-tier disco producer, him having been the student of legends like Tom Moulton and Vince Montana. Provided with only the crispest of stems, the A side ('Disco Mix') hears Simpson strip the track back to its bare percussive bones, rendering it clearer and temptingly DJ-able. The B ('Radio Mix') relinquishes vocals entirely, providing a keen disco-funk backdrop for any late night breaks bender.
