Album Review

Although its songs are all sourced from Jimmy Somerville's 2015 release Homage, calling Club Homage a "remix album" might lead listeners down the wrong path, as there are no bass drops or electro-trap tricks to be found here. Like its mothership release, Club Homage pays tribute to the golden age of disco, but here it's the classic 12" mix that comes into play, as songs get stretched into long workouts that best serve DJs of either the professional or bedroom variety. Maybe the string section gets pumped up in the mix, maybe a hook gets looped a couple extra times, but this is mostly remixing and editing in that simple and effective '70s style, and with some of the classic names of the genre lending a hand. The legendary Tom Moulton notches a highlight with his tension-building work on "Strong Enough," but it's Studio 54 DJ Robbie Leslie who earns first place by taking album highlight "Travesty" past the 11-minute mark, and deservedly so. All the other mixes are handled by Somerville and Homage producer John Winfield, and while it's a glorious set of dancefloor bliss, it is still a supplemental release with redundant tracks, including three versions of "Travesty" that add up to almost half an hour.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland on June 22, 1961, he co-founded Bronski Beat in 1984; from the band's debut single "Smalltown Boy" onward, Somerville's songs dealt openly with his own homosexuality, a recurring theme that met with surprisingly little commercial resistance, as both the record and its follow-up, "Why?," cracked the U.K....
