Fly Tonight

Play It Down
It’s obviously no coincidence that the cover of Jesse Rose’s latest, on his own Play It Down label, apes that of Thomas Bangalter’s inimitable Roule imprint. This French fried disco number has been filtered to absolute buggery, and laden with the nifty compression trick that gave all those great releases from Bangalter, DJ Falcon and Alan Braxe their pulsing, heady vibe. It’s an unashamedly massive tune (playing to the crowd with its scarcely unrecognisable sample, from Chaka Khan’s 'I’m Every Woman') and one should treat it as such.
