Venise – Don’t Think About It

Damn, this is one of those songs that will loop over and over again in your head, long after you’ve clicked stop on the YouTube clip!

‘Don’t Think About It’ is taken from the late 70s hypnotic disco album ‘The Best Disco In The City’ produced by Jo Bisso, who was active on the French afro-funk scene. It features an infectious bassline that has been trumpeted by the likes of The Sunburst Band and Kon & Amir.

With plenty of other tasty cuts from this album, I’m hoping someone re-presses it soon (as it’s pretty hard to find and not too cheap). The other thing to note is the hilarious cover editing from a time before the advent of Photoshop. It features a poorly cut out picture of Venise (?) pasted onto a background of blurred vehicle lights.
