Out on 12″, Pink Stallone releases “Dancing in Time” featuring Joey Washington on Under the Shade with quality remixes by Mugwump, No Regular Play and BOP & Daniele B. William Rauscher at RA says it best:
“Dancing in Time” exudes the off-the-cuff charm of early vocal house, with Washington’s falsetto bobbing in and out of a winding groove composed of fragmented disco drums and fuzzy synthesizers, and its agreeable, feel-good nature make it about as easy to resist as free beer.
No Regular Play’s remix is both sexier and dancier, yet they manage to maintain the original’s rough appeal: both the bass and the big, bright synths have a rowdy, hand-played feel to them. Mugwump’s remix comes off shined-up and sophisticated, with a round, dubby low-end and classy piano chords—a tuxedo and martini version where the original sticks to hi-tops and hot dogs. Washington’s voice sampled and replayed in angelic chords is a nice touch. The last remix features another old-new team-up in the form of Stallone mastermind Daniele Barbarosa together with Washington’s old Strictly producer Paul Scott. A cranked-up tempo and a bricklayer rhythm section, all chunky drums and slap bass, provide the backbone of the tune’s heaviest rework, turning the original’s hang-out vibes into disco carthasis.
