2002 release. A living legend, the German crooner, entertainer and jazz piano player Paul Kuhn has become well known for commercial pop hits in the German hit parade and for some TV shows, but his first and biggest love was jazz music. With all his film and TV industry contacts, it seems natural that he finally even worked out some library titles, which have been slumbering in the archives for decades. Here we have discovered one of them: "Gateway To Crime," from 1974. This title is definitely exceptional and might irritate some of his fans, since it does not sound at all like the typical German radio station big band stuff, but rather evokes New York's Harlem street atmosphere. We confidently put the title into the trustworthy hands of two producer teams to overpass it into a "fit for the club" context: The first craftsmen team is Slope -- Hans Schaaf and Daniel Paul. These very pleasant guys from Berlin prove a deep understanding of the original version. At the same time their version bears their own and very individual mark. The second team is Difusora -- HP Eckhard aka DJ Agape and Marc Frank (singer, drummer and producer for Les Gammas). They get to the heart of the original, turning it surprisingly into a fantastically straight Brazil dancefloor tune.
