With this, the first in a series of edits done under the LA MISSION banner, Chrissy has perfectly embodied our need to connect with the past and examine and retain the history of dance music, while relating it to our present and future community.
Don't think this makes the record boring. Far from it, Chrissy's year of edits series is chock full of the best of the best of the booty-shaking-tastic best of lost and classic songs made e v e n b e t t e r .
The title track is a high-energy, filtered Disco punch to the face, pushing people into a St. Vitus Dance of ecstatic reverie. On the flip, 'ANOTHER WORKOUT' is the sultry, darkroom version of a rock and synth inflected jazzercise class.
We at La Mission couldn't be more excited about this. While you dance, think. Think about who chooses how/where/with whom/when you are allowed to dance. And fight for that right.
"The title of this record might seem anachronistic. After all, people rarely dance with a partner anymore. More often they're in a crowd, facing the DJ, simultaneously dancing alone and with everybody... It's a part of dance music culture that we take for granted, but it's a recent development [...] Did you know that in 1960s New York it was illegal for two men to dance with each other?" - CHRISSY
