Latest offering from US house don LENNY FONTANA is a series of incendiary mixers of his tune ‘Fire’. On remix duty it’s a proper global affair, with Midnight Riot label boss Yam Who?, his studio confidant Jaegerossa, Chicago’s legendary Ron Carroll, Melbourne’s Robbie Casa Blanco and west coast USA’s SanFranDisko. All offer their experience to create a set of thumping soulful house cuts.
However what makes ‘Fire’ for real is the gospel-infused vocal from Philadelphia’s SHIRLEY LITES. Yes, ‘Fire is a great groove but Shirley steals the show … and so she should – she’s been singing since she was six – fronting the Philadelphia Girls City Choir. From there she went on to work with Dexter Wansel, Billy Paul and others Philly luminaries! ‘Fire’ – a real Disco Inferno!
The mixes are good to go now, on Midnight Riot Records.
