PHOTOS: Escort at The Loving Touch


      NYC-based Escort rounded out 3 back-to-back midwest dates on Friday night at The Loving Touch.  The show was energetic and electric from start to finish.  An exuberant crowd drew in closer and closer to the stage as the night went on, while front-woman Adeline Michèle let us know a few times that she felt like she was "here partying with friends".  It did feel that way as all of us moved and revered together to hits we loved from the first album and a slew of favorites from their sophomore album "Animal Nature" released this past fall. 

 
      "Animal Nature" stays true to the tradition of clublands holy trinity - New York, Chicago and Detroit - while staying on the forefront of modern disco and a new era of not-so- underground dance music. In an age where the dance music is over saturated with countless producers churning out an endless stream beats and remixes, Escort stands out, in part, by creating dance music the old fashioned way: with impeccable production, musicianship, and songwriting. 
      Escort also brings their uncompromising approach to the stage. In an era where dance music is dominated by samples and computers, Escort has developed a reputation as one of the premiere live dance acts, capable of performing their elaborate recordings note for note. Including their renowned single "Cocaine Blues", a loose reinterpretation of the 1976 Dillinger classic that received rave reviews and quickly became an underground sensation.

      The night ended with a medley of classics including crowd favorite, and Detroit anthem, Inner City's "Good Life".  And, yes, that was a short interpretation of Lil Louis' "French Kiss" that followed...sadly Adeline did not do "that part"!
