About this item

Those naughty buggers down at NYU usher through and flurry of illicit edits and cuts from the annals of dance music's underbelly.

"Track 1" is a groovy proto-house / boogie jam that's got Tony Humphries and Ron Hardy written all over it. Fizzy synths, solid drums, wigged out leads... all that's escaping me is the original artist and title! "Track 2" goes back further to a late 70s disco-rock / soul cut with searing guitar lines and ace vocals. This one's so pleasurable I can't believe I've never heard it out! Finally, NYU make it a white wash on their behalf,, bowling me out with THREE UNKNOWNS this week (the first time this has happened I might add...) as "Track 3" concludes with an Loft-friendly, orchestral disco number somewhere between Billy Frazer and Salsoul Orchestral. Gotta grab these while they're hot as once they're gone they are gone! 


Matt says: Love em or hate em, these bootleg joints keep rollin' thru under cover of darkness. I like the idea of arming the peasantry, so they get my vote!
