Clemens Rumpf and David A. Tobin "Never coming down" (Deep Village Records CD Promo)
Clemens Rumpf and David A. Tobin have been taking over dance floors by storm last year with their "Ain't nothing but house Music" album (also released as a highly recommended remixed edition end of last year), now they are about to do the same with the brand new single "Never coming down", an uplifting production featuring David A Tobin's unmistakable vocals and glorious keys over a fierce disco-funk soaked backing. The 'CR & Lewis Young Edit' gives the track a classy old school touch, while the 'CR Funky Sax Dub' intensifies the funky feel and introduces a jazzy sax. Completing the package is the outstanding broken beat flavored 'CR Auszeit Lounge Edit'.
