“Space Bass” by Slick – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Slick is a disco group consisting of musicians from the Fat Larry’s Band and also featured vocals from The Sweethearts of Sigma: Barbara Ingram, Carla Benson and Evette Benson. Their 1979 album featured a track titled “Space Bass” which became an instant disco classic with its funky-bass line which plays out like a soul-cha cha. It was an immensely popular track in my club and lasted throughout the mid-80s in dance palaces.
I have taken the disco track and blended it with the 1979 adventure-sci fi television series, “Battlestar Galactica” starring Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict and Lorne Green. The concept feeds on the space discotheque scene which features disco star Pattie Brooks singing an out-site-outta space number, which is replaced with “Space Bass” It is a play on the “Star Wars” era.
The film was directed by Richard A. Colla and Alan J. Levin
