Playing tracks by
Velvet Sky, 6th Borough Project, Toomy Disco, Contra Communem Opinionem, Motor City Drum Ensemble and more.
This week’s podcast gets off to a discoey start with some superb groovers from 6th Borough Project and Tommy Disco. “Age of the Jaguar” hits the spot with a heady cocktail of slow disco licks and euphoric vocals, and is available as an awesome freebie on the Kahua Music sampler volume 2.
My pick of the week though is “Don’t you want to be mine”, a vocal house track originally released in 1987 which I came across recently as a Clone Classics reissue. I’m not usually a fan of such overt vocals, but this track won me over completely with the tight drum programming, Chicago style bassline, and the deep, soulful grain of Joe Church’s voice. Intense and full of desire.
