Things kick off with “Mountains” by The Vision featuring Andreya Triana. You may remember the fabulous “Heaven” by these pair from “Party For the Weekend” last year. Instead of a disco floor stomper this time, “Mountains” brings out that old school 90’s vibe. Clocking in at over 10 minutes, I had do some precision editing to keep it moving along but it kicks this set off with a nice quiet opening before things slowly heat up.
The Shapeshifters are back with the vocally gifted Kimberly Davis “Second Chances.” I’m thrilled to see that these guys continue to release solid House Music tracks. They don’t even bother commissioning remixes because their originals speak for themselves.
Sorry, no Purple Disco Machine in this set but to make up for it — we’ve got the king of disco edits Dr. Packer and the always diverse offerings of Block & Crown. You should keep an eye on the latter as they have a tendency to swing from Disco, to House, to Funk, to roof-raising underground floor fillers. They’ve been churning their work out at a record pace with no identifiable signature sound that’s starting to cross over into mainstream territory. Their music is so dynamic that they may very well get their own Legacy induction because I want people to become more aware of their work.
As per usual, there’s a lot of familiarity for those who store a Disco catalog in their cortex. For others — this will be all new to you. Much like Disco Chic, the overall vibe here is more smooth and laid back with several funky elements in the mix. While it relies heavily on past 70’s and 80’s and even some 90’s Disco or House Music tracks (either sampled or in whole), the DJs add a underlying element that modernizes the sound for an entire new generation of listeners.
