Discossession Does Linda Di Franko
Released last year on Japanese imprint Crue-L Records, cosmic disco outfit Discossession’s T.V. Scene feat. Rie Lambdoll is a modernized interpretation of Linda Di Franko’s 1985 ultra rare classic. The LP includes 3 versions: an original mix, a Soft Rocks remix and lastly, a second Discossession version titled “Celestial Forest Mix”(which is actually 2 songs weaved together).
Brighton U.K. production, remix & edit team Soft Rocks offer up, for me, the main attraction. It’s a slightly more raw and funked up take on the original and features an additional chorus by the now legendary disco singer-songwriter Kathy Diamond, who you may know via her collaborations with some of the best nu dance music producers around, including Maurice Fulton (one of my all time favorite producers), Aeroplane, Permanent Vacation & Nick Chacona.
