Into The Light’s International Series continues with a fresh pressing of an obscure, early ‘90s, street soul-inspired single from Berlin-based American Claudette Outland AKA Chapeau Claudette and Cologne-based producer Jurgen Garbitowski. This remastered edition of the double A-side single leads with ‘Fashion c’est la latest attraction’, a slow-motion affair in which Outland sings and whispers in French and English atop a warm electronic groove and dreamy, glassy-eyed chords. It comes backed with a previously unheard version of original AA side ‘Pass Auf’, a house-influenced chunk of reunification-inspired breakbeat soul marked out by Outland’s Neneh Cherry-esque raps.All these years on, the record remains as funky, joyous and celebratory as ever!
