Bryan Ferry – Don’t Stop the Dance
Virgin
★★★★ (out of 5 stars)

Befitting the Roxy Music frontman’s famous elegance and soulful restraint, this batch of official remixes of Bryan Ferry’s slinky 1985 classic, “Don’t Stop the Dance,” skews heavily toward nu-disco. Even among genre leaders like Psychemagik, Greg Wilson, Punks Jump Up, Todd Terje and Idjut Boys, it was Orlando DJ-producer Sleazy McQueen – on personal invitation by son Isaac Ferry, who’s both a fellow DJ and a McQueen fan – who hatched two of the most distinctive reworkings on this release. His Space Coast Remix is a nice and compressed chillout, but the prime-time outing here is his namesake remix. Cleanly merging fantasy frequency with spank-taut rhythm, the Sleazy McQueen Remix is distilled deep house that splendorously isolates the sex-sax and rides out high on a tasteful, centipeding synth hook. With its understated erotic sleekness, McQueen’s dance refinement honors the song’s original spirit, but deconstructs and recontextualizes it into crisp modernity.
