- Mania Reprise
“Un coin de rue”, (French for street corner) are the very first words of the song “Elle et Moi” by Max Berlin, a sexy song that became a New Beat underground classic in the 80s and a much sought-after gem among dj’s all over Belgium. Situated on an obscure street corner in Ghent, legendary vinyl walhalla Music Mania will be releasing a beautiful reissue of the song.
The hot and heavy track is filled with French Gainsbourg-style sentences like “aimez-moi” (love me) and “sa voix m’appelle” (her voice calls me) that are whispered in a way that will make every lady urgently get down to business. If you add to that a groovy but very slow disco beat, you can be sure to have a classic on your hands. If the singer then appears to be a cousin of disco legend Cerrone, you know that it’s time to get to the record store and buy yourself a copy. Aimez-moi? We sure do.
