Beat The Street  

Sharon Redd, a formal Shaffer Beer girl, was an amazing singer. Thanks to some incredible production work and a mixe by the seminal Francois Kevorkian, her tunes are still moving dance floors all over the world. Beat The Street has a perfect blend of percussive guitar with a simple, yet iconic synth line. The vocals are a preview of what would later become Hi NRG and vocal house music. This track was featured on fantastic mixed releases by Chicken Lips and Chromeo.

    Classic track.

    I spent many a night doing tape edits of this track in my Suffolk bedroom.

    One of them Proto house tracks like early Colonel Abrams and stuff.

    Great blog.

    thanks, i'm really loving this track. there's a video for it up on youtube which is worth a view, gives me nostalgia for a decade i didn't even life through.
