NERVOUS

Yet another slept on Wayne Gardiner production from 1992, hand picked from the Nervous Records vaults and fresh for 2015. 2 mixes of "Mellow" take up side A; the "From The Deep" mix is a classy, pacey deep groove, pure heads down NYC business oozing musicality, keys and melodies while the "Ambient Mix" follows with a tougher edged feeling, a taut bass-line and some haunting pads and piano. Both mixes are very different, yet equally engaging and both feature flawless production from Mr.Gardiner. On side B we have 2 mixes of "Love", a subtle vibes led cut punctuated with classic vocal samples peppered throughout telling us we "Got to have it" and that love will "make you stay out all night long", a super deep track indeed with both mixes lending a different feel for the heads and dancers alike! This is the first time "Mellow / Love" has been repressed since it's original 1992 release and this 2015 re-master and re-issue has been done in conjunction with and in full cooperation with Nervous Records, New York City. Essential.


Grammy award winner Louie Vega is known worldwide as one of the finest creators and purveyors of house music, both as an individual artist / producer / dj and as partner with Kenny Dope in the renowned production team known as Masters At Work. His multiple musical talents have also brought him much acclaim in the genres of salsa, afro-beat, jazz, hip-hop and soul. Last year he reached another career milestone when his album “Louie Vega Starring...XXVIII” was nominated at the 2017 Grammys for Best Dance Album, which further solidified his position as one of the industry’s premier artist / producers. But not everyone knows about Louie’s deep respect, admiration and knowledge of the disco genre that laid the foundation for so much music that moves crowd on dancefloors and festivals today.

Louie’s connection with Nervous Records and it’s father / son founders Sam and Michael Weiss goes back to the label’s very early years, as Masters At Work gave the label some of its earliest hits along with its signature release “The Nervous Track” by Nuyorican Soul. Louie was always aware of the many disco hits that had been released by Sam on his Sam Records label back in the 70’s and 80’s. But it was not until recently that Louie suggested Michael send him the 24 inch multi -track masters of seminal Sam Records disco classics like Gary’s Gang “Keep On Dancing,” John Davis & The Monster Orchestra “I Can’t Stop,” Convertion “Let’s Do It,” Vicky D “This Beat Is Mine,” as well as several others.

The multi-tracks are a treasure-trove, including musical contributions from some of disco era’s finest musicians and engineers. Going through the various percussion, horn and string tracks inspired Louie to create a series of remixes that became dancefloor anthems that topped the Traxsource and Beatport charts and reverberated on dancefloors worldwide. That response, and the common drive that Louie and Michael both share to constantly promote quality music that is both song and rhythm based, inspired them to take this endeavor a step further, and to create brand new songs. When Louie’s creative energies start flowing, his team knows to rise to the occasion.

Dense & Pika are a British electronic production / artist / DJ duo compromising of Alex Jones (Hypercolour label boss) and Chris Spero better known to many by his Glimpse alias. The duo first came into fruition in mid 2011 with a number of white label releases feverishly snapped up by young upstarts, clued up DJs and anyone with a penchant for bass heavy techno. They first linked with Nervous Records when they played Output Club in Brooklyn in May 2017 at an event that was promoted by Nervous Records founder and label chief Mike Weiss. That meeting lead to discussions about possible remix of one of seminal tunes in Nervous’ legendary house music catalogue. The fruits of this chance meeting can now be witnessed as D&P remix Kerri Chandler's mighty "Rain", a B2 track off "The Mood EP". Fans of the duo will instantly recognize their tuff, wall shaking aesthetic that's more suited to the Void air horns than the Funktion1's. They utilize the OG's vocal snippet nicely but overall the result is much more ruged, mechanized and harder than Kerri's soulful original. Comes with instrumental and vocal versions!

After sending dancefloors into a peak hour frenzy with mega reworks of Vicky D, Convertion and John Davis & The Monster Orchestra, house legend Louie Vega applies his magic touch to the one and only Sylvester. Using elements from the 1978 version of "Dance Disco Heat" and combining them with his own original musical and percussion contributions, along with new vocal performances from renowned singer Cindy Mizelle, Louie has refashioned and reignited this 39 year-old production into a 2018 club anthem. Loopy as hell, this bass driven jam just goes for days, hitting you with all the high octane shit you wanna hear at one in the morning. Choppy guitars, infectious vocals and sparkling synths abound as Louie gives us a masterclass in tension and release. Armed with a filter-house dub version and stripped down club tool, this is an absolute must have for main-room DJs.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Byron Stingley sampled this fierce slice of late 70s disco for "Get Up (Everybody)" in 1996. Now Louie Vega revisits the incredible stems for a more subtle re-edit, dub and instrumental. Still sounding killer!
