Dominatrix
Dominatrix, the short lived synth-pop creation of producer Stuart Argabright, producer Ken Lockie, vocalist Claudia Summers, and keyboardist Peter Baumann are responsible for a record that is widely considered a starting point in the early 80s bridge between 1970s disco and 1980s dance and are widely regarded as pioneers in the “freestyle” genre that was spawned in NYC in the early 80s. Many consider the band’s only single, “The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight” as the very first freestyle record to achieve mainstream success. The risqué subject matter of the song, particularly it’s references to S&M and bondage, were rumored to have played a part in major media outlets refusal to play the single, but it did not stop legendary NYC clubs and DJs from propelling the record to #2 on the dance music charts. The record still finds a cult following as an anthem in S&M and bondage circles in the U.S. and Europe and now finds a way to your home turntable by the good folks at Get On Down.

Get On Down is proud to present Dominatrix’s - 'The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight' on solid hot pink 7” vinyl complete with enhanced audio quality and artwork reflecting the original Streetwise Records aesthetic. The record's b-side also features a very rare recording with Kool DJ Red Alert; “Beat Me Scratch Me Scratch Me Beat Me” was previously only available on UK and German 7” pressings from that era.
