Label’s sales notes:
This album takes us straight to the madness filled summer dance floors. At the same time it is also true album, it is not just a collection of tracks, it has its own flow and rhythm as it moves us from song to song from the beginning to the end. Rayko sets us on the journey with Sumy’s Funkin in Your Mind, real sleaze funk workout, driving beat and loopable groove is polished but, psycho nevertheless. Womack & Womack Conscious of My Conscience is very sexy track, Rayko maintains natural feel and emotion of the original yet giving it much stronger dance floor appeal with driving rhythm and dreamy vocal rearrangement. Flip over to the B-side and get ready for a very surprising choice - 1983 Italo Disco number by K.I.D. Come and Get It. It totally works, much more serious transformation was needed here and Rayko delivers perfectly. Rayko stays fairly close to the original with his rework of Joe Coleman’s Get it off the Ground; it is a bit slowed down, 80s with big synths, a hypnotic groove & new killer bassline. Rayko continues with second Womack & Womack song Love Wars, this songs is completely rearranged, it is actually more of a remix than an edit. It comes with new layers, new pulsating stomping bassline, vocals are darker and way edgier. It is a gem. D Train Keep Giving Me Love is a disco house excursion; Rayko extends, blends, cuts & chops the EQ to produce essential rework of this 1983 classic for the modern dancefloor. As we get closer to the end of the album Rayko again surprises us with Bill House’s You are no Better Than a Common Thief, the original is quite bluesy and touching, Rayko preserves all of the important elements of the song - sensational vocals, original guitar and rhythm section, very pretty and subtle re-edit. The album closes with 1979 Final Edition’s I Can Do it (Anyway You Want), it is true indeed Rayko can serve it anyway you want, with this album Rayko clearly establishes himself as super disco producer of our time.
