There’s something about new feel good on the dance floor tunes being made today that are reminiscent of those that played in discotheques world wide in the past that caused an ocean of sweat from hardcore dancers and partygoers. The latest release via Légère Recordings is one that surely will capture some of that energy and deliver it to the music lover with a taste for finely tuned musical compositions.
Night Trains, the rare groove and mod vibes outfit with dance sensibilities founded in 1987 by bassist, producer and DJ Hugh Brooker and part of the first wave of acts to sign to Acid Jazz Records have something special for the above occasion with their latest double-sider, “Don’t Want To Know” b/w “Only Know About Love”. The two sides of this 45 are from very different polarities of musical genres and styles, but still sharing a similar universal message and sentiment. Side A’s “Don’t Want To Know” gives an old John Martyn folk ballad an uptempo positive summery twist, with the magnificent Najwa handling vocal duties. On the flip of the 45 is “Do Anything You Wanna Do”, a Night Trains rework of the timeless classic by Eddie & The Hot Rods.
