Kat Mandu ~ The Break 1979 Disco Purrfection Version

http://ProDJ.de #koogle: Kat Mandu was a studio group headed by Denis Lepage, a native of Montreal, Quebec. Considered the New York City of the North, Montreal was a hot spot of disco activity for the likes of France Joli, Gino Soccio, Freddie James, Geraldine Hunt and Cheri. It was also home for the legendary Limelight club, which was acknowledged as the Studio 54 of Montreal.

I had the chance to visit that club at the height of its popularity and I can tell you that DJ Robert Ouimet along with Gil Riberdy made that place happen. It was a swirling mix of heady music, sweat, cologne, cigarette smoke, full of disco balls and the very best lighting system that pulsed and flashed driving you higher and higher until someone passed you a hit of poppers just when the break hit. One time, this big muscle boy I was not even dancing with grabbed me from behind and picked me up by the waist like a skater and lifted me up above the crowd, I had to let out a great big "OH YEAH" then he brought me down and we kept on dancing. The club I frequented the most was the Ballon Rouge on the rue St Jean in historic Old Quebec, right next door across a side street to a church and a small cemetery. The DJ there was Daniel Faguy, a blond bear of a man whose impeccable taste in music and sensitivity to the crowd he was shepherding led me to more dance floor orgasms that I have ever experienced in my life. Good times! One of the songs he championed was "The Break" a bass pumping instrumental with incredible sonics at every level, percussion, drums, strings that sharply entered your consciousness that I never wanted to end. Some time ago I had a conversation with Denyse Lepage, Denis's wife who told me that she still had the whistle they used in this song and that several songs were recorded in their living room. You can connect the dots that led to the 80's trend of Hi NRG music that started with Patrick Cowley's contributions to Sylvesters "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" to Kat Mandu's "The Break", Dan Hartman's classic anthem "Vertigo-Relight My Fire", Patrick Cowley's "Menergy" and Lime's "Your Love". Soon after those songs peaked, Ian Levine distilled the sonic energy of those songs and created Miquel Brown's "So Many Men, So Little Time" and the song that gave the nascent genre a title, "High Energy" by Evelyn Thomas.
