There isn’t too many old disco records out that have a gaggle of remixes and re-edits doing what they can to breathe life back into them. Jimmy Ross’s 1981 debut album “First True Love Affair” is one of those albums. There are two tracks that are definitely getting the works right now[…]

I’m finally done moving into my new house!!! I’m so relieved. Anyway, it’s rare when a song gets stuck in my head for a long period of time. I mean there is music constantly playing in my head, but being a DJ, I tend to do imaginary mixes and cuts in[…]

There’s a certain rule that I have when I’m digging through dusty crates of vinyl that helps to weed out the crap from the good stuff at first glance. This rule states, “If the cover of the album is a photo of a multi-ethnic/racial group of people, standing in space/on a[…]

There’s something about smooth 80’s synthetic sounds that just really do it for me. I’m not really sure what it is. Maybe it’s the way that new technology of that time was being used to produce music? Either way The BB&Q Band really drove that use of technology to create some[…]

This obscure album from the Netherlands made it back into my rotation only a couple of weeks ago. The reason that it came back was because of a re-edit that Mr. Absolutt did of the groups monster jam, “Precious Little Diamond.” I truly believe this band was before their time, and[…]

Spanish producer Rayko has always always toted himself as a throwback from the 70’s and 80’s disco era. His remixes and edits thoroughly span those decades. His extensive collection of  created edits seem to touch just about every track that came out at that time. When I heard that Rayko was releasing[…]
