Dyer's Notes regarding this club pairing, 'Headspin and Jitterbug' (included on original club fiber labels):
I had so much fun researching these two fabulous dances! Both dances are of Latin origin, with the Mambo coming from Cuba and the Tango from Argentina and Uruguay. While both dance styles are used in competitive dancing, each dance is very different from the other. I found Mambo to be an upbeat, fast, spicy kind of dance- cheerful and fun. The Tango, as most know, is very sexy and sensual, with seductive moves and lots of passion and tension.
I did my testing with both dances in mind, not working literally but just playing with colors and values until I had two colorways that just felt right. To me, the deep, rich reds, earth tones and near blacks in Tango are very sensual and evoke the essence of the dance. The light, fun shades, masculine and feminine, within Mambo bring me right to the dance festival!
