By the 1980s, Imagination were famous all over the world, having released a series of Gold & Platinum albums, embarking on a series of sell-out tours & they were now permanent fixtures on mainstream TV.
Fast forward, its 30 years later, and Imagination co-founder, drummer, songwriter & singer Errol Kennedy meets producer & Ism Records label boss DJ Yam Who? in London & have lovingly re-created the album using the same studio techniques, synthesisers, drums and hypnotic grooves for the modern dancefloor.
I’m loving the John Morales‘ remix of “Just An Illusion” which is part of the new EP ‘Night Dubbing Vol II’. This EP has taken 2 years to complete and is now available on digital music stores.

Roosevelt Creates An Instant Classic By Merging Disco And Rock
Roosevelt keeps pushing boundaries and fusing genres like Disco and Rock on “Paralyzed,” taken from the recently released album ‘Embrace.‘ One way or another, he has managed to craft an instant classic that defies genre conventions!
For sure, Disco and Rock might sound quite opposite, but when combined, an interesting rhythm is created. On this occasion, Roosevelt seamlessly merges infectious dance beats with the raw/heavy guitar work.
Additionally, it’s impossible not to notice the vibrant visuals that accompany this awesome track. In the music video, shades of grey and pink predominate, creating something literally striking and original.
If you ask me, “Paralyzed” feels like it’s geared more toward being a sing-along anthem than a pure dance tune. Nevertheless, the upbeat melodies make it impossible to resist tapping your foot.
Besides, what sets it apart from the crowd is its ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia while remaining contemporary. Consequently, it’s accessible and appealing to a wide range of listeners.
The art of composing songs is a boundless playground where innovation and creativity know no limits. Clearly, Roosevelt exemplifies this limitless approach with his groundbreaking music.

A Must-See Music Video: “It Girl” By Black Queer Artist Sedric Perry
Sedric Perry‘s “It Girl” music video promises a blast of fun! Drawing inspiration from the 1980s aerobics craze, this black queer artist delivers comical visuals that are a must-watch!
Teaming up with NYC label Sundaee Sauce, this new track embodies the spirit of having a good time and the importance of self-assurance. Best of all, it incorporates vintage synthesizers as part of the characteristic Nu Disco sound.
Influences from artists such as Prince, Whitney Houston, and Vapor Wave are clearly evident, with an exceptional guitar riff taking the spotlight. Additionally, there are funky beats in the background that beckon you to dance along.
It seems that Sedric Perry is at that point in life where being super serious just doesn’t cut it, especially when life is already throwing its curveballs. Sometimes, it’s totally cool to embrace your inner goofiness and just be yourself without any apologies. Without a doubt, that’s the message behind “It Girl.”
At the end of the day, bold people often come up with innovative ideas, and the same goes for authentic artists who aren’t afraid to express their vision and creativity.
