It has been quite a while since I have been to a dance club. Most of my clubbing days existed back in Philadelphia and NYC. The 80’s and 90’s were the highlight of those late night / all nighters at raves, triphop and trance clubs. Bands like Everything but the Girl featuring Tracey Thorn, Massive Attack and Philly’s own King Britt were leading the triphop scene. Dj’s Tiesto and Paul Van Dyke were taking charge of the trance movement. Somewhere in between there were bands like Saint Etienne, Bent and my featured band for this challenge Ror-Shak featuring Julee Cruise (you might recall her haunting voice from David Lynch’s film Blue Velvet and TV’s Twin Peaks (Floating)). Here she gets down with the beat singing Fate or Faith and asks the question…who do you follow?
Enjoy the video, and find a dance partner tonight. Now if only they would bring back the club Emerald City.
