Put On Your Boogie Shoes!
This mix was inspired by ‘Nobody Puts Disco In A Corner’, a fantastic mix from Labellerouge and the video of ‘2 AM’ from Heim and Human League singer Philip Oakey. If you listen to the first one and watch the second one you will understand what I mean! ;-)
I don’t play music of German lips-sync act Boney M very often (although I like ‘Daddy Cool’ a lot), but when I heard two edits of ‘Rasputin’ (‘Russia’s greatest love machine…’), an extended one from Schratchandsniff and a reworked version from Ashley Feraude, I decided to make a version of my own. I used the original intro from Cozy Powell’s ‘Dance with the devil’ instead of the poor rip off from German producer/con man Frank Farian. Then I combined the versions of Scratchandsniff and Ashley Feraude to finish it off.
Enjoy! Picture below from Tracy Toler.
