***PICK OF THE WEEK : SPIRIT OF HOUSE *** (Review by Mike Fossati)
With "Don't give up", Ciappy DJ & Davide Murri present an absolute beauty featuring an outstanding vocal performance by Russoul whose incomparable voice makes this something truly special. The 'Main Mix' is an uplifting funked-up affair featuring a wicked guitar riff, phat keys and grand strings harmonizing perfectly with the vocals, while the timeless 'Classic Mix' oozes with an amazing old school feeling. On remix duty, we have Dave Doyle adding his beloved fervid full-on-funk touch to the track, DJ Mannix turning the heat up with his modern Disco flavored interpretation, Booker T delivering a relentless afro tinged thumper and Harold Heath getting utterly deep on his hypnotizing remix.
