The drudgery of the work week is coming to an end and what better way to welcome the weekend than with a new edit! Here's to hoping your 5pm comes with the quickness and the boogie can begin.
Pleasure was a funk and soul outfit from Portland, Oregon that had a cult following on the underground black music scene of the 70's. Their biggest hit was "Glide" but I always preferred the laid back disco groove of their track "Future Now" off the album of the same name. The electric guitar work of Marlon "The Magician" McClain gave their sound an edge not usually heard among their contemporaries but for this edit, I tried to stay true to the original vibe while removing more of the in your face guitar solos. I also tried to emphasizing the more soulful aspects of the track, extending out the slow disco grooves and beautiful backing vocals. The edit also benefits from a boost to the low end and a few subtle overdubs. "We are universal children" and this is how we get down!
