about

Emotional Rescue completes the Dancefloor Records trilogy with a detour from House to the oft forgotten movement, Freestyle. Shavonne’s So, Tell Me, Tell Me is a unique combination of all time-classic, but underground jam too.

Emanating out of Hamilton, Ontario the one off project came about when Rose Iovio was introduced to Massimo Rosati. Her voice and tone instantly made the team pitch at their love of the burgeoning Freestyle scene and the raw track was soon formed.

Things came together when they fell in to the orbit of Dancefloor’s Jeffrey Osbourne. His expanding labels were looking at the new scene via the M-Pire label and under his guidance the record developed and was released in 1989.

With 3 versions included here, the breathless vocals of the original “Vocal Mix” encapsulate Freestyle in essence. Pitched “Lovers” vocals atop arpeggios, electro-house bass and skipping hats meets breaks-influenced percussion and its all there. Do you smirk or dance?

For the deeper heads simply flip it for the “Trance Mix”. Accentuating the bass, added Enigma-style vocal samples and a yearning key line and you have a late night heads down DJ tool.

The Dancefloor series ends with the all out “Clubhouse Mix”. A time capsule in vinyl form, everything is thrown in the mix. Held together with a stepping bass line and stabbing keys and there you have it - things can also end with an E.
