releasing modern italo hits with vintage feelings. Foreign Boy first got
noticed with his release of his modern italo classic ?Dance Like A Light?
a perfect example of his focus on driving disco beats, arpeggiated bass lines,
funky riffs and unforgettable vocal hooks, and Touch Me is no different!
Touch Me was born from a Italo Disco weekend in Amsterdam.
Driving round the city with a choice Italo soundtrack was the spark that
sent Foreign Boy into the studio full of inspiration.
Touch Me features vocals from Foreign Boy himself, with his roots as a punk
rocker he dazzles the track with a pure punk avant-garde vocal hook to
complement the Italo backdrop. ?
Remixes come from Aux the Masterfader, Nude Disco and L'Equipe du Son
Aux the Masterfader his remix was heavily influenced by Prince & chicago house.
Known for his love for analog gear the Synthmeister used his beloved LinnDrum,
Juno 60, Polysix, Oberheim Matrix 6 and Roland SH-2 for this remix.
The result; driving disco beats, rolling bass lines and warm synthesizers.
Nude Disco produces synth pop tinged with 80's disco with european influences.
?This remix was a pleasure to do for my good friend Foreign Boy who has
also been a resident at my Nude Disco club nights and a mainstay on
the Nude Disco label. My mix was the last piece of work I did in my now defunct
London studio and contained all the elements I love. Machine drum hits,
FM Bass and Trevor Horn inspired brass stabs.??
After hearing the ep for the first time Silhouette's head honcho L'Equipe du Son
was so inspired he made a remix himself and the result is a funk driven track,
build on the classic '707 drums - Moog baseline combo'.
