Maurice Donovan – “Call My Name”

When David Kennedy (Ramadanman & Pearson Sound) dropped this track under his pseudonym, Maurice Donovan, last month, he engaged in a little press mis-information by pretending that he was a long-lost Chicago underground DJ who was releasing new material after two decades of celibacy.  The identity might be fake, but the intentions are surely not.

Released on the Phonica imprint, “Call My Name” is Kennedy’s second release under the moniker Maurice Donovan – having released a 12″ on Untold’s side-label, SSSSS, earlier this year.

At first glance “Call My Name” looks like the title of a cheesy top 40 house track, but once you groove to the vocal driven sample, you find that there is much more than just nostalgia for the parties of old in this song.

It’s not quite Inner City and Kevin Saunderson’s “Good Life,” but it’s simple. And sometimes you don’t want complexity on the dancefloor, save that for the weekdays, it’s Friday.
