Review

Timeless drum-machine soul music from genius Brit-Funk pioneer John Rocca. Pink Rhythm were a mid-80s evolution of Rocca’s London-based band Freeez, featuring the great Andy Stennett and Peter Maas. “Melodies Of Love” was first released in 1985 yet, still sounding staggeringly fresh, it’s no surprise that discerning DJs call on it now more than ever. As the title suggests, it’s so melodically profound and so effortlessly funky, once you hear it, you never forget it. Accordingly, it has been growing in demand on 12″ for the past decade. Gliding serenely, its epic, melancholic synths appeal to fans of Italo, whilst its stabbing Moog bassline and wall-shaking drums retain an unmistakable boogie / electro-disco feel. Rocca himself delivers a memorably androgynous vocal that only adds to the majesty. Backed with the strutting sax workout “Walking In The Rain", this officially licensed, remastered 12″ - presented in a heavier sleeve than the original - is one not to miss.
