Birthday Medley / X Medley - Edits By Francois K

Francois K is back on Sunshine Sound with more exclusive edits from the Loft and Paradise Garage days. 

"Birthday Medley" is a hard grooving, disco-funk jam. With rampant woodblocks & cowbell, incessant guitar chops, street shouts and a slap bassline that'll make your arse cheeks red raw; FK has the mixer burning white hot throughout - a sure fire winner for the dancefloor. 

"X Medley" is a more psychoactive affair. Heavy on the spacey flange fx, and looping up the drum sections for a more taut and tense, cosmic disco DJ tool; just wait for that bassline eruption and the keyboard drop! If you dig the Idjuts Boys' lysergic disco edits then you'll defo dig this!

SUPER limited copies - buy now or cry later!  



STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Possibly my favourite of the Sunshine Sound edits thus far. Francois gives heft and bump to the Bohannan-esque, "Birthday Medley"; whilst "X Medley" sees cosmic drum workouts lead into seriously euphoric sugar rushes of disco bliss.

Happy Song - The Francois K & Walter Gibbons Edits

Sunshine Sound deliver an absolute doozy for their vinyl debut, treating us to 'Happy Song', the original DJ tool from the legendary Francois K.

This is not just a bonus beat...This is THE bonus beat! This iconic rhythm track has been the source of countless samples, imitations & duplications since it first appeared in 1977. Now for the first time FK's original edit is available as a high quality stereo recording direct from tape. You may now put away your bootlegs.

Flip it over to find the long lost Walter Gibbons Battle Edit of 'Happy Song'. 
Walter Gibbons, one of NYs founding DJs, would skilfully experiment with the rhythm live on turntables at his Galaxy 21 club residency, whipping the floor into a frenzy as well as inspiring FK to create his famous edit.
What you may not know is that Walter also worked on his own version of Happy Song. Pulsing with primordial stereo syncopation, Walter's previously unheard Battle Edit could be considered the Director's Cut.

This is just the beginning, prepare to amend the history books.

Package includes hand-stamped sleeve and information inlay.
