The Boogie Back-Post Disco Club Jams Compiled By DJ Spinna



I am a junkie when it comes to lost dance music gems. In fact, I feel that the most amazing dance music ever recorded was during the first 20 or so years of its history. Disco to about the mid 90's era. BBE Records is a label to look to for reissues of those dusty lost records you'd be lucky to find. The 'Kings of...' series is a strong one and now they've branched out bringing in Brooklyn's DJ Spinna to select, remix and re-edit some of his favorite cuts from the Post Disco or Boogie era.

These tracks were the start of the Electro-funk movement which would lay the ground work for basically everything you hear in dance music today. The compilation will be a two disc set-disc one a continuous block party style mix from DJ Spinna and disc two 12 unmixed originals which until now were most likely lost in the haze of dance music past.

I caught DJ Spinna about 8 years ago in Chicago opening for Mr. Scruff. I highly recommend checking out one of his sets next time he's in your area.

The comp comes out on BBE on November 24th, so all you diggers better mark those calenders.
