The Wonders of Shuffle Play... [Mar. 19th, 2008|05:05 pm]

... and how it can turn up things that are super awesome that you don't remember listening to, or maybe you never realized how awesome it was until it turned up between Sightings and Kenny Larkin.

I give you Super Jay Love Theme

This is from this CD Sounds of New York Volume 1. This is a production of the amazing Peter Brown, though the Sound of New York label stuff was pretty obscure until recently.

What makes this so grand is that it is a classic, classic disco groove, meaning it was made by studio musicians with fantastic taste and technical abilities, who were really exploring uncharted territory in the 70s. The idea that you could just kill a single groove for 7 minutes and it would be awesome was akin to telling people they could breath water in 1975.

And there is a guy playing traps, and at least 3 other people on percussion. I wish I got to DJ out because this is a track that could absolutely kill on the dance floor.

David Mancuso puts on a Loft party a couple times a year in NYC still, and Francois K does a Deep Space party regularly, and there are occasional Body & Soul reunion parties. Keep the vibe alive!
