Global Communication & The VCF Band – The Groove 3×12″ promo

1A1- info2A2- info3A3- info

This is the 1997 Dedicated Records 3×12″ promo release for the last official single by Global Communication. For the single, the duo collaborated with the otherwise unknown VCF Band for the recording session. Bringing their studio wizardry and the live funk of an actual band, the marrying of the two created something quite good, and vastly different from anything that had come from GC prior to this.
The eventual product was given to two of the up-and-coming producers of the time – Palm Skin Productions and Dego – for the remix treatment, along with a tasty reworking by Tom Middleton himself under his Modwheel alias, which all sit alongside some variations of the original done by GC themselves.
To say that this farewell single by the duo is something that warms my heart is an understatement. The top shelf production, the variety of the sound palette used and the overall good vibes this track exudes is what I think of when I think of Global Communication. I’m always a bit saddened to think that Tom and Mark ended their production partnership and went their separate ways, but they are both talented producers on their own and their productions always glimmer with pieces of the GC sound, even to this day.
Listening to works from the GC catalog is a treat for any music enthusiast, so I’m hoping that the promo presented here brightens your day the way it always brightens mine.
All six sides of the promo are here for your listening pleasure.
