NERVOUS

Grammy award winner Louie Vega follows up 2016's acclaimed album "XXVIII" with an album of collaborations paying tribute to dance music's grandmother - disco!

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, and so the fruits of said labour are here for us all to enjoy!

Sil says: One of two records that showcase Louie Vega as a skilled disco producer as well as defined house head.

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.

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!
