Night Moves : Transdance Dark Entries

12", €18

Dark Entries present all four mixes of Transdance as a tribute dedicated to the lives lost in the Oakland Ghost Ship fire on December 2, 2016.

Night Moves was the brainchild of Michael Guihen, from Pimlico, south London. Considered a blueprint song that connects the dots from UK Synthpop to Italo Disco, Chicago House and Detroit Techno, Transdance was embraced by Chicago’s WBMX, Hot Mix 5 and Ron Hardy as well in New York at Larry Levan’s Paradise Garage and Tony Humphries’ Club Zanzibar in New Jersey.

The first version of "Transdance" was recorded in late Spring 1981 at Ridge Farm Studio in Surrey. All three later mixes were programmed with a Roland TR-808, some live drums, and one homemade handclap machine.

Includes a 2-sided 11” square insert with lyrics and drawings of all 36 victims of the Oakland Ghost Ship fire. Each copy also includes a six page press kit with liner notes, clippings and photographs from the band’s archive. All profits will be donated to the Oakland Fire Immediate Relief Fund.
