Playing tracks by
Tyson, HRH, Lone, Dawn Deluxe, Mory Kante and more.
Recorded live at the Wee Red Bar, where we did a couple of DDC nights this season. It opens with a current favourite by Tyson, who's channelling the spirit of Sylvester with real finesse, and an unreleased JD Twitch (Optimo) remix of local heroes-in-the-making HRH - I love its drone-like style.
An unexpected entourage of veteran ravers inspired the consequent Lone medley. Lone's music is such a perfect embodiment of rave nostalgia and still manages to somehow sound fresh. Just about everything he touches turns to gold and is well worth picking up, if you like that kind of thing.
After that, there's some classics from the acid house and disco eras (Nitro Deluxe, Mory Kanté, Klein & MBO, Love Committee, Chuck Roberts and Armando) alongside some recent tunes that have espoused an equally classic aesthetic, not least the relatively rare Russ Gabriel outing, Azari & III's Manic and Oni Ayhun's genius (and untitled) OAR-003 release - will never tire of that one! Hope you dig.
