Moodymann & Kenny Dope Have Reworked SunPalace’s House Classic ‘Rude Movements’
Written by Rhythm 86 on August 11, 2020
Two of the modern electronic scene’s most consistent innovators and elevators, Moodymann and Kenny Dope have revisited one of the most influential early electronic dance records, SunPalace‘s ‘Rude Movements.’
SunPalace producer Mike Collins himself selected the two American artists to rework the track before passing away in late 2018. Set for release on October 16th via BBE‘s vinyl-only offshoot ALIM, the record will be available on strictly limited 7-inch vinyl.
First recorded at Collins’ London home studio in 1981 as the B-side to a single called ‘Winning,’ ‘Rude Movements‘ soon caught the ear of David Mancuso, who started to play it regularly at his famous New York Loft parties. An early house music classic, the track has strongly influenced Moodymann and Kenny Dope throughout their careers, as well as helping to shape the early House Music movement in the hands of Larry Levan, Nicky Siano, Frankie Knuckles and Danny Krivit among many others.
“Moodymann’s remix retains the ‘jammed’ feel of Rude Movements, introducing stellar flute, sax and piano solos over the groove, while remaining utterly faithful to the original vibe,” while “Kenny Dope’s ‘Dancefloor Powder’ version adds a vintage Afro-Latin drum break into the mix, while showcasing the original’s epic synth solo,” a press release reads.
