It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

Back to the heady days of 1988 for today's track.

Royal House was just one of a myriad of aliases of producer Todd Terry, probably intended to keep the lawyers off of his back as Terry was renowned for his use of uncleared samples.  Can You Party is a prime example of this as it samples Marshall Jefferson's Move Your Body, First Choice's Let No Man Put Asunder, Planet Rock by African Bambaataa and Bring The Noise by Public Enemy, there are probably others in there as well. It doesn't detract from the fact that this was a brilliant track in it's day which always filled the dancefloor and to me it doesn't sound too bad today bit that may just be due to nostalgia.

Have a good weekend people.
