About this item
The recent slew of perfectly pressed disco reissues continues to keep the DJs and dancers moving this week, with First Choice's majestic "The Player". Written by one of the seminal figures of the Philly Sound - Norman Harris, "The Player" is not only one of the finest First Choice records, but one of the best disco cuts of all time. Swirling strings and booming brass raise the tension as they swell above a hypnotic head nodding groove, while the streetwise vocals tell a tale of ghetto intrigue. Over on the flip, NYC DJ & producer Mike Maurro takes a break from his Brookside pursuits to turn out a respectful remix of the original. Tweaking the arrangement with an expert's touch, Mike extends the cut into a total dancefloor slayer.
