Another Italian stomper of mysterious provenance, ‘And I’ll Be There’ was issued in the UK on FFRR’s commercial arm FFRREEDOM in late summer 1995. Unabashedly cheesy in its original form, the track benefited from a blistering rework care of Undiscovered label-mates LWS, who famously released the harmonica-infused ‘Gosp’ in 1994. This track might well prove insufficiently underground for some palates, but the phenomenal nature of the breakdown and attendant elongated vocal cannot be denied. ‘And I’ll Be There’ is a little-known gem that exudes the ‘fun’ of Italian commercial house, a genre which seldom took itself too seriously. Apparently, Antonomasia is a figure of speech used in rhetoric, quite how that concept relates to the track at hand is a bit of a mystery.
