|1.||"Disco Supreme" (feat Arthur Verocai - Al Kent remix)|
|1.||"Keep Believing (Can You Feel It)" (Al Kent remix)|
On this 12" Al Kent strips the original disco masterpieces down to their bare bones, letting the splendour of Betrami and Verocai's arrangements really shine through. Al Kent's edit of 'Disco Supreme' is a fantastically drawn out 13-minute builder - deconstructing the original and piecing it back together within the framework of his signature (very) punchy drum sound. Betrami's beautiful Rhodes float amongst Verocai's soaring strings and at one point, these are the only sounds to be heard (it's possibly the most beautiful thing ever!), before the song kicks back in in all its Brazilian disco glory. The b-side 'Keep Believing' is a slightly slower and heavier (yet just as club focused) groove. Its foundation is Alex Malheiros of Azymuth's funk bassline woven tightly with Al Kent's phased drums. Triumphant disco in the style of Tom Moulton and Walter Gibbons, 'Keep Believing', like the a-side, features a full orchestra and revisits the authenticity and glamorous hedonism of the late 70s scene.
