Description

Before there were so many innumerable sub-genres dividing what little spoils of House we have left, there were just two kinds of dance music: records that worked, and records that didn't. "Soulful house" had not become a bad word yet, and "techno" was still a regional manifestation of the broader movement. Amid this culture still unburdened by the constraints of classification, native New Yorker Victor Simonelli flourished, tapping into the cathartic, liberatory spirit of classic disco and garage while casting a net wide enough to win over even the most rigid adherents of linear electronica, fleshing out a simple formula that combined tracky savviness and anthemic vocal sensibilities to produce a slew of timeless NY house classics that continue to make their presence felt. "Nothing Better" (remixed with frequent co-conspirator Tommy Musto) and "Do You Want Me," two of the most stand-out piano-laden anthems straight from the heart of NY garage, encapsulate the Simonelli sound: catchy, irresistible, simply genius party rockers that continue the tradition of hands-in-the-air communal transcendence while circumventing any shortcomings of the cliche. Joining the growing roster of classic house moguls spotlighted on CORE, Simonelli deserves to be remembered in the company of the great men and women of house music: an innovative producer touched by the guiding light of dance music revelation.
