Groove Line Records open our account in 2015 with our debut half-speed mastered 12°… single. First in line for the super deluxe treatment are Plush°«s 1982 singles, Free And Easy (Tee Scott Remix) and Burnin°« Love. Plush were a short lived Synth-Dance group (with a young Siedah Garrett in their ranks) who were taken under the wing of R&B hit makers Rene & Angela releasing one self-titled LP in 1982 from which both of these singles originate. Side A boasts the legendary Tee Scott's Dance Remix of the Rene & Angela penned °»Free And Easy,°… whose version is considered a classic by modern soul lovers. Celebrated DJ, innovator and mixer Scott expertly stretches the Plush original to over 8 minutes, creating an incredible dancefloor experience. The opening synth swell gives way to a solid kick full of intent, on top of which a synth bass riff introduces the funky electric bass, anchoring the groove for the duration of the track. Tee Scott then takes the dancer on a beautiful journey, subtly and sparingly adding the various elements of the track to stunning effect before each sequence culminates in an intoxifying crescendo (notably at 2:18 and 4:41) before stripping it all back and starting the next leg of the journey. Scott seems to have been inspired by the track title injecting an ever evolving blend of dynamic synth parts, jazzy, staccato lead guitar riffs, acoustic piano licks and passionately sung, feel good, positive vocals from Garrett and her band mates which unquestionably leave you feeling very free and easy on the dancefloor. Side B features the 12°… Dance Remix of Burnin' Love. A very funky, synth driven dance track with a bubbling bass line, sweeping synth swells and Prince-esque electric guitar, Burnin' Love (also written by Rene & Angela) spotlights the burgeoning vocal talents of Siedah Garrett and the funky, harder hitting, progressive electro-funk production style emerging within dance music in 1982.
