Lotus Disco - #Love #Hope #Desire (CD)
Over the last few years, Vietnamese DJ Lotus Disco has been taking the international soul scene by storm. Here she presents her first compilation CD, a 12-track salvo packed to the rafters with high-grade boogie and disco treats. While there a few well-known scene staples present - think Claudja Barry's "Sweet Dynamite", Staple Singers' cover of Talking Heads' "Slippery People" and the killer dub of Geraldine Hunt's "Can't Fake This Feeling" - it's the lesser-known delights that really sparkle. Highlights include the soulful disco-funk shuffle of Project's "Love Rescue", the slap-bass propelled brilliance of Dee Dee Sharp Gamble's "Breaking & Entering", Shawn Jackson's sensual electrofunk roller "Loveline" and a pair of hot-to-trot slammers from Suzy Q.
