You can never go wrong with Stereolab when you have a small gathering at your place before you head out for the night, its like no one is going to say “hey, come on man, turn off that crap” because that person can just go home.
I’m not sure if Tom Croose ever put this song in his mix since he turned me onto it but this is a better Phil Collins edit than the one with Bone Thugs n Harmony on many levels.
I have not met a dance floor that didn’t like this Wighnomy Brothers song, its about as potent as Metro Area – Miura.
Jan Hammer knew something that a lot of producers didn’t back in the late 80s, its like he almost nailed this comfy Miami sound but then just got off the beat and path with the ok guitar solo and new age chimes but the melody and groove in there in the background probably influenced a lot of the late 20 year old producers today that make slow disco.

Agreed, it really matters on the song, often people would gladly go home because of poor music selection, I have left plenty of “parties” because of bad music choices and i’m sure you have too

Stereolab has a permanent residence in my heart, mainly because of L’Enfer Des Formes and Doubt is beautiful too, thanks Jakub!

I absolutely adore Stereolab, however their last album I felt fell short of what I loved about them. Ever since Mary left the group, I really feel as though they suffered a serious loss. I always look forward to the next Dots and Loops though.
