“Billy Boy”, the title track of Modern Romance’s debut on LuLúxpo’s “Paradise Children Records” imprint is an atypical opener for a dance record. Its lackadaisical guitar work feels more like music made for a smokey dive bar in Tennessee or like it accidentally fell off the soundtrack of a lost Tarantino cut. But it’s a stunner nevertheless, the ideal companion to a lazy, hazy sunday.
LuLúxpo’s remix is its club-ready counterpart. The label bosses dial down the rockabilly feel and add their distinct slow and sensuous touch. Choice guitar licks are repurposed over a deep, rolling beat, while angelic oohs take a welcome front seat in the song’s second half.
As free digital bonus track, “I Love You Funky Time, I Need You All The Time” is added to the package. A collaboration between both artists, takes its cues from minimal techno with pinprick sounds and sultry vocals. It’s the perfect track for DJs that want to take things up a notch and take the dancefloor for a dive down the deeper end.
EP totally thought, realized and produced in memory of our sister COCO “FOXY LADY” MERCIER (1972-2018)
