One of dance music's unheralded originators, Walter Gibbons pioneered the art of the 12" remix. Using the same techniques developed by hip-hop DJs such as Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa & others, Gibbons specialized in extending a song's percussion heavy "break," a style which would influence his mixes. With Jungle Music, Strut's retrospective of Gibbons' classic mixes, out now, Disco Sonitus (Blackbeard's Toni Rossano & DJ D) put together a promo mix comprised of many of the tracks on the album. It's a fantastic portrait of a true disco original.
