“The irresistibly sleazy, jacked up bassline may as well be a straight sample from the ’80s disco that inspires this hi-energy fantasia, but it’s probably the techno-y electronics, faint Knucklesy arpeggio repetitions, and synthetic horns (some of which is provided by Valet/Miracle Club member Honey Owens and Joshua Anzano) that make this one rise up big time, cementing 100% Silk’s rep for heavy appropriations that are actually “better than the real thing” -Altered Zones

“Sampladelic. It’s a pretty cringe-worthy way of describing anything serious, but as far as the music of Magic Touch (a.k.a. Damon Palermo of Mi Ami) is concerned, its anachronism is entirely appropriate—and meant with positive connotations. Take ‘I Can Feel The Heat,’ the San Francisco artist’s first release, out today on LA’s 100% Silk label. Featuring cameos from Miracles Club’s Honey Owens and Corrine’s Joshua Anzano, ‘I Can Feel The Heat’ acts as a sort of aural history lesson on the touchstone moments of classic underground dance music”. -XLR8R

“club-ready disco-house sounds.” -The Bay Bridged
