Former Sex Pistols impresario Malcolm McLaren was the first to bring vogue-dancing (from the gay underground scene in New York) to the international mainstream music almost two years before Madonna. McLaren and Bootsy Collins’ Bootzilla Orchestra collaborated together and came up with a track called Deep In Vogue — an ode to the ballroom scene started by young, gay African-Americans and Latinos in New York City featured in the documentary Paris Is Burning. Dedicating the song to all the houses of ballroom and vogueing, the track featured vocals from voguing pioneer and legend Willi Ninja. On the production side, additional remixing were done by Mark Moore of S’Express and William Orbit.
Uncredited playing by David Stewart on guitar and, I think, Candy Dulfer on sax – the interplay sounds very much like their subsequent single “Lili Was Here”. Note the trademark fanfare of Mark Moore running before the sax solo – the same riff as in “Theme from S’Express”.
