Italian producers Yuga and RoyTson join forces once more

I'll confess to a strong feeling of déjà vu here… a couple of months ago we reviewed Yuga & RoyTson's Stars On 45, calling it "as fine an unashamed cheese slice as you'll hear this week" and referencing the very familiar vocal sample.

Well, here they are again, and it's pretty much the same story, as another familar vocal whose source escapes me right now (it's either Loleatta Holloway or Millie Jackson, I'm pretty certain, but I wouldn't put money on which cos whichever one I backed it'd be the other) sits atop another rolling, hi-octane disco-house backing, in this case a souped-up take on Silver Convention's 1975 disco hit Fly Robin Fly. To make matters worse, as with Stars On 45 it's a single-track release so there really isn't much more I can tell you!

Except that, with summer officially here and the festival/Ibiza season looming, you can no doubt expect to hear plenty of this, on the kind of floors that favour unpretentious fun n' frolics over cold, clinical "tech-house" (read: dreary prog) beats and black v-neck t-shirts. And that's a good thing.
