Take Me To The Bridge  

  We've covered a lot of post-disco electro funk material here at Beat Electric, here's a little throwback with a more traditional straight ahead disco sound. This beautiful Canadian cut was included in a Trocadero Transfer mix we posted a while back. A friend of mine gave me this 12" around December and its haunting infectious sound has found its way back on my turntable many times since. Canadian keyboardist and member of Nightlife Unlimited Louis Toteda handled production duties on this masterpiece. Enjoy the full seven minutes of swirling disco perfection.

    Great quality rip of Take Me To The Bridge - the entire album from which the track is from is worth a listen - especially the last track 'Bizz Bizz Buzz Buzz' which has some really deep analogue synth sounds and deep groove.

    I got a rip of the album from the sadly defunct Disco Connection blog, so the quality is excellent - anyone interested in the Bizz.. track here it is below:

    Such a beautiful track. I'd first heard it from Marcello Giordani. I like to play it real slow.

    I used to think that Golf Channel Recordings were one of the very few labels putting out new material that had any originality or meaning, but the Mind Fair 12 Inch that includes the cover of Take Me To The Bridge doesn't win them any points - when a track is as good as this, there is no point in just doing a speeded up cover version (and I do like some of the Mind Fair releases like the Downtown Nubian EP).

    Personally, I could imagine someone like the Chromatics, Glass Candy or Farah taking it on and doing something magical with the track, but like I said above, you can't improve on perfection so why bother.

    Likewise, the early re-edits by Moton, Blackdisco, RVNG, and Mindless Boogie to name but a few labels were an absolute breath of fresh air a few years ago, but I must admit, in the last couple of years, the tsunami of so-called 'disco' re-edits of the same old tracks (how many edits of Like An Eagle do you need!?) and the sterile, insipid nature of "nu-disco" has pretty much left me cold for new releases (with the odd exceptions like The Meridian Brothers) and I would rather listen to things like the couple of Tropical Disco Hustle compilations than wade through disco simulacra.

    Damn, I clearly needed to get that off my aging, wheezing chest!
