Following a limited 7” vinyl release of SunPalace edits in 2020, BBE Music finally delivers the
full-length versions of Moodymann and Kenny Dope’s ‘Rude Movements’ remixes, alongside
brand new interpretations by François K, Frankie Feliciano and OPOLOPO, plus a special edit
by Phil Asher.
François Kevorkian needs no introduction to fans of House and electronic music. Featuring
keys by Eric Kupper, his ‘SATS Dub’ and ‘TradMix’ versions of ‘Rude Movements’ are simply
classic works, summoning House music’s golden era forward in time, to the here and now.
Bonus spaced-out ‘Flerken Space Bubbles’ and beat-less ‘Atmosphere’ revisions are also
included in the digital version: both invaluable tools for DJs. Ricanstruction label founder and
long-time champion of the good groove, Frankie Feliciano delivers a slick and faithful update
of ‘Rude Movements’, with a slight Latin soul twist. Swedish mix-king OPOLOPO turns in a
typically live-sounding, funky and dancefloor-ready jam (ready whenever the dancefloor is,
anyway) The full, extended version of Moodymann’s remix retains the original ‘jammed’ feel
of Rude Movements, adding stellar flute, sax and piano solos to that hypnotic vibe. Kenny
Dope’s Afro-Latin inspired ‘Dancefloor Powder’ version is joined this time by a rough’n’ready,
street tough ‘O’Gutta’ mix; calling all b-boys and b-girls! For the expanded digital package,
we are also including a special edit by our sorely missed brother Phil Asher, created for his
own DJ sets and now available to all.
Made famous by David Mancuso at his New York Loft Parties, ‘Rude Movements’ was an
obscure Brit-funk b-side recorded in the home studio of Mike Collins. The track’s unique
sound, coupled with pristine sonics and production values caught the audiophile ears of
Mancuso, and the rest is history. Soon the track found its way into the hands of Loft Party
denizens Larry Levan, Nicky Siano, Frankie Knuckles and Danny Krivit and continues to
influence House and electronic producers through to this day.
