Description
For a period of 10 years from 1973, perhaps the dawn of Disco, popular music was blessed with one of its most creative periods. An era of dance history that was unfairly overlooked and left us without a proper farewell.
Less concerned with concepts and the personality cult attached to other musical genres, Disco cultivated simply good music - music for clubs and people who wanted to dance. This collection of underground dance music is taken from the period 1975 to 1983 from both sides of the Atlantic. The tracks chosen for this compilation introduce to us the pioneering few, who expanded the horizons of Disco to incorporate elements of dub, funk, electro, jazz and latin. In some ways many of the artists featured here foresaw the birth of successive musical genres.
The selection on this album (on CD1) were the underground classics that made the scene what it was in the heady of days of the Paradise Garage and the Loft in NYC and the Warehouse in Chicago where DJ's such as Arthur Baker and Francois Kervorkian could be heard spinning such tracks.
On disc two, a couple of todays finest production teams to rework the classics. The Masters at Work add their touches to one of their favourite tracks while Harvey and Underdog take on the Disco Dub Band and have come up two very different interpretations which still work todays dancefloors to galactic levels....
