Great Dance Track – “Don’t Take it Personal” by Wahoo
There’s a lot of great music falling by the wayside these days. Here’s a cool dance track that — okay, I’m gonna venture out onto this limb, here — is virtually unknown in America. Apparently, it’s gotten a bit of play in dance clubs around Europe. Gilles Peterson — master Brit DJ / music purveyor — enlightened me on this track.
Wahoo singer/songwriter Paul Randolph — apparently Philly-born — grew up in Sao Paolo, Brasil and Detroit, MI. He’s played in sessions with P-Funk, War, Brian Setzer and Buddy Guy. And now he’s doing his own thing, which I think is fabulous. I’ve got their full-length CD Take it Personal, but I sort of prefer this version of the single best.
