Way back in 1981, two musicians got together to
make a record. Mike Collins played guitar and had
just bought a Roland CR78 - the first programmable
drum machine. Keith O'Connell played Fender
Rhodes piano and Prophet 5 synthesizer. Excited
about the quirky and unusual instrumental track
they'd composed, when the duo entered London's
Utopia Studios to finish off their creation, neither
could have predicted what was to follow… Now
viewed by many as one of the most influential early
electronic dance records, 'Rude Movements' was
swiftly picked up on by David Mancuso, who used it
to devastating effect at his infamous 'Loft Parties',
in turn introducing it to Larry Levan, Frankie
Knuckles, David Morales and Kenny Dope, a group
of young DJs who would go on to write the blueprint
for dance music as we know it.
In the more than 35 years since its release, 'Rude
Movements' has continued to inspire and excite,
sampled by The Bucketheads' classic House track
'Whew!' (featured on recent BBE compilation '20
years of Henry Street Records') and listed by a
veritable 'who's who' of dance music's elite as an
all-time favourite. Rare and much sought-after on
vinyl, BBE are happy to announce the release of a
fully remastered version of 'Rude Movements'
presented alongside the original demo version 'Raw
Movements', plus three other versions of the iconic
track. Also included on the vinyl package are the
Afrika Bambaata inspired 'Street Beat' and
808/MiniMoog workout 'Palace Strut', as well as
three other 80s SunPalace compositions. CD and
digital versions expand the catalogue still further,
with more experimental SunPalace magic. Timeless
original, quirky and unique, these recordings are
set to inspire yet another generation of DJs,
producers and music fans.

- Full press , radio & social media campaign
- contains previously unreleased recordings
- artist Mike Collins will be available for interviews
- artwork contains detailed liner notes written by
the artist himself Available from 18.11.2016
