The second single on Ruff Diamond's Supaearth label comes from Anglo-French producer Electric Diplomat, who creates a head-nodding, disco and boogie-fired backing track on which New York mic man Lord K.C.B can do his thing. The resultant "Main Mix" and "Radio Edit" are wonderfully catchy, with authentic disco and pop instrumentation combining to create an addictive chunk of life-affirming positivity. Label chief Ruff Diamond provides the remix, pushing up the tempo to suit peak-time floors whilst making the most of Electric Diplomat's fine synthesizer work. The result is little less than P-funk flavoured nu-disco gold. Like the fine "Main Mix", the Diamond geezer's version sounds like a hit in the making.
Once upon a time, Chris Robinson AKA Ruff Diamond was an in-demand remixer reworking hits from the likes of Estelle and Beyonce. He's now returned to his disco roots with the launch of a new label, SuperEarth. Naturally, he provides the debut release, asking us to hold on to our hats as he attempts to "Rock The Discotheque". Robinson provides Main Mix and Radio Edit variants that giddily fuse elements of nu-funk, electrofunk and chunky disco-house with arresting hip-hop vocal samples and a sweet, R&B style vocal. '80s Child heads up the remix package, serving up a bongo-laden electrofunk revision in keeping with his boogie-centric catalogue, while Lempo lays down a tooled-up version that adds sweet synthesizer sounds to a chunkier peak-time house groove with impressive results.
