DIVA "La Nuit" FRENCH BOOGIE BOMB FUNK REISSUE 12"
In 2018, the parisian crew of diggers and DJ’s originally known for their edits goes official with fully licensed and remastered reissues. For this new adventure, they chose an incredible in-demand french boogie EP from Diva, an eighties funk band from Bordeaux.
Diva only released one EP with « La Nuit », a sentimental, almost poetic boogie banger with great synth, guitar and vocal parts. The track could honestly have been a radio hit in the eighties with some real promotion. Today, it’s still time to make it right and it is already an anthem in the french underground disco scene.
Originally on the B side of the 1985 original release on Cactus, « La Nuit » is here available with its two different versions (12’’ and 7’’ mix) and comes also with « Prise Au Piège », a more synth-pop influenced funk track which gave its name to the original release.
The band was formed by Gabrielle Andriampanana, Alex Louisor and Olivier Renoir. Before Diva, these last two already played together in the local new-wave band Bolton which was one of the first of the area to use synthetisers. Even if they had a small recognition at the time, the original release stayed quite underground. Thanks to Discomatin, it’s now available to the real connoisseurs and still with the fantastic illustrations of french artist Camille de Cussac.
