Bandcamp Review

For a disco act in the late ‘70s/early ‘80s, making it into the record crates of legendary DJ David Mancuso was a profound accomplishment. The UK duo Sun Palace achieved that honor in 1983, when “Rude Movements,” the B-side to their 1983 12″ “Winning,” became a staple of The Loft, Mancuso’s exclusive, invite-only dance party.

In 2011, Victor Rosado tracked me down in London and I went to meet him at Fabric. I invited him to visit me at my home studio a couple of days later, and while he was there, I interviewed him about Rude Movements, then I videoed him listening to playback of a trial remix that we made together.
