Kano  “Can’t Hold Back Your Lovin”

Kano “Can’t Hold Back Your Lovin”

I thought ” KANO” was a guy. I imagined him in a purple suit wearing a Fedora tipped to one side, Don’t ask me why. I found out the ” Kano” was actually a music project formed in Milan, Italy in 1979 by producers/musicians Luciano Ninzatti, Stefano Pulga and Matteo Bonsanto. Of Course their massive hit ” I”m Ready” became an 80s club anthem equally requested by Freestyle and Disco Fans alike ( since it contained elements from both styles) . Later the track was sampled by various other artists most well-known use of it was a sample is on Tag Team’s 1993 hit, “Whoomp! (There It Is)”.
A Few years ago I ran across “Can’t Hold Back Your Lovin” a Chic/Change hybrid some call it ” Boogie Funk” which was unlike the Kano I was familiar with. A Smooth Bouncy track miles away from the Holly Doll/ I’m Ready High energy, Elektro sound. Worth a second listen , may even erase that image of the guy in the purple suit.
