Nancy Martin, also known as Nancy Martinez, released this sultry jam in 1982. This track is one of a handful she released using her more Anglo sounding moniker in the early eighties. Her first releases came out on her Canadian home label Neige. This one was produced by Dominic Sciullo and Rick Annett.

This track, like many produced in Canada, shows a lot of italo influence. It seems to have equal parts Robotnick and Sharon Redd with a bassline could easily be warped into a modern minimal techno track. This cut was a crowd pleaser at the Garage, which is easy to imagine. It is hard to see how this track would fly in a club nowadays, I would bet that it would require a good crowd with a particularly high serotonin level.

I have the Atlantic promo release, but the original looks way cooler. The Neige release is also a minute longer.

    Great record, big big tune here in Glasgow, UK.

    I also think that Theo Parrish either sampled or copied the bassline for his tune Dusty Cabinets

    Great song. And this reminds me, if I recall correctly, I believe BT said he was going to give me a copy of this record...

    always loved this one, although somehow the intro always throws me, i always feel like the hats come in to early

    i guess that's what years of 4/4 house music has done to me

    also, awesome synth solo

    Yeah, it comes in on the up beat like a lot of techno. It can be a train wreck for sure.
