Legendary disco and hi-HNRG label Unidisc celebrated its 40th anniversary recently, and Carl Cox has joined a collection of artists to pay tribute to the imprint with a reworking of a 1980 classic.
Cox has delivered a pitched-up, refined rework of Geraldine Hunt’s Can’t Fake The Feeling, which topped the US dance chart for seven weeks following its release four decades ago.
It’s the latest in a series of musical re-imaginings to mark the label’s anniversary, which kicked off with a Claptone remix of the Trans-X classic Living On Video, Jacques Greene’s take on Babe We’re Gonna Love Tonight and Alan Fitzpatrick’s rework of Let The Music Play by Shannon. Purple Disco Machine is another artist lined up to contribute to the project.
Over its four-decade-long lifetime, Unidisc has evolved and shifted with the times – formed in 1977, it quickly became one of Canada’s largest independent record labels, building a reputation around its Italo disco and Hi-NRG output from artists such as Lime, France Joli, and Geraldine Hunt.
