torch song - prepare to energize (fong test ). 1983.
torch song was william orbit´s band before he formed bassomatic and would become top-class producer and purveyor of shlocky classical trance.
while he would form his seminal sound with his bassomatic project in 1990, he obviously had found his formula (morphing, triggering staccatos, spacial pads, sci-fi snippets and female voice-samples) with his 1983 dance remixes of “prepare to energize”.
just listen to this, followed by bassomatic´s “set the control for the heart of the bass” (1990), seals´”crazy”, madonna´s “ray of light”-album (1997) and his remixes throughout the ages (recommended: hey music lover (s´express), batdance & the future (prince), radioactivity (kraftwerk)) and you´ll notice that the foundation for all his work to this day was laid out right here.∞
