Week six takes us from Bizzi to Bowie in the British Book of Hit Singles. No actual Bowie, instead feast your ears on nearly 14 minutes of completely irresistable funky Chicago house from Lil’ Louis. You’ll know the main vocal hook from a thousand other tracks, but this is the motherlode, the original. Where has it been in my life, lodged between Black Machine and Black Riot in the British Book of Hit Singles. The last 5 minutes are non-stop bass nirvana, courtesy of one Gene Perez. Unknown to me, he was the foundation of lots of Masters of Work remixes and it’s no disservice to say that this could be a sample from the thumb of Bernard Edwards himself.
