Lata Ramasar – The Greatest Name That Lives [ICE009]


Hindustani singer/songwriter Lata Ramasar’s “The Greatest Name That Lives” has long been considered something of a pioneering voodoo disco/proto-house classic. In a bid to beat bootleggers, Invisible City have rushed through this official re-edit – produced with the cooperation of the Ramasar family – backing the original version with Alessandro Adriani’s infamous, previously unreleased remix on the flip. While that version, blessed as it is with additional analogue drum machine hits and dub effects, is rather fine, it’s the druggy simplicity of the chugging, synthesizer-heavy original – on which Ramasar’s vocal sounds particularly haunting – that’s the real killer.
