Forget the fact that this track is a legendary 1980s classic. The video itself is important for its depiction of the electrofunk scene in Queens in the 1980s. Arthur Baker is the dude delivering the reel to reel tape. Jellybean Benitez is the DJ in the booth. The club shown is the notorious FUNHOUSE. What I would do for one of those killer Funhouse Disco satin jackets the security guards are wearing when they let New Order into the club. But who am I kidding, some Euro or Japanese nerd would probably pay several hundred dollars for those kind of tight threads.
My boy Gavin (Nouveau Riche and CU Next Tuesday) and I have been working on some tracks and this is our first original production that we have put out in public. We are trying to make well-crafted dance music that plays on fun vibes.
We will be making a totally killer music video directed by Pablo Maurer (Mopedlords) in the coming weeks for this release!
Busted out this quick little mix for my friends Henry Da Man and everyone at the Audio Infusion on Saturday nights on 88.9 FM WEAA Morgan State Radio (Baltimore). It will be airing tonight sometime after midnight.

DC Record fair was tight, even though I was initially discouraged since I woke up late and the usual FREEKS had been there since opening and were walking out with large stacks.
Anyways, was real cised to have come across this LP that has several groovy cuts. This one is my favorite selection: A super slo-mo cosmic disco workout. Perfect for those end of the night feelings and vibes. A Gettysburg classic (for those that know).
First off, I gotta give credit where credit is due. RJJNY on YouTube has posted an incredible collection of vinyl transfers from the golden era of NYC 90s house and some of these cuts are mindblowing. I have been turned to a ton of great stuff and copped alot of records that I am now playing out becuase of this resource.
This is a more recent posting and I think I have listened to this track about 15 times this weekend alone. LOVE IT!
