In the 1990’s I’d sneak off to the now legendary Superstars of Love raves that were thrown in and around St Louis, Missouri. According to story, the duo took a road trip to New York to purchase crates and crates of records from the partner of a well-known Italo Disco DJ who had just passed.
“Male Stripper” was one of those tracks they often dropped. And for a lot of us, (though some remember better than others) it was one of the defining song in raves that would eventually usher in the Italo/Electro Revival of a few years ago…
The original version from Canada’s Power Records in 1986.
EMB remix originally released in 1989, and reissued in 1993 on Abfahrt.
