Michael Gray kicks off this set with "Take Me Back" (as in Studio 54) with Ian Ossia doing the remix honors. This song is also remixed by 84bit and frankly both remixes are outstanding so it was nothing more than a preference for inclusion.
Salsoul Records had commissioned the very talented Dr. Packer to remix several classic tracks from their vast collection and here we get not one but two Loleatta Holloway classics that have been updated for today's new disco scene, while remaining true to the originals. "Runaway" and "Hit and Run" are two of the finest from her repertoire as he's already remixed "Love Sensation." The big one we're still waiting for is "Dreaming," but hopefully soon.
Gangs Of Naples & Raffaele Ciavolino sample Loleatta's foray into 80's Dance with "Crash Goes Love" on their "What I Want" — an often overlooked classic loaded with one-liners that have been frequently lifted.
Speaking of classics, Angelo Ferreri takes a deep dive into the Joe T. Vannelli and Eartha Kitt dance floor smash "Where Is My Man" and DJ Aiblo delivers a faithful rework of Kool & the Gang's "Too Hot."
Overall, Disco Yeah raises the temperature with a solid mix of styles that blend together to create a seamless end of summer pool party (even if for only one).
We'll be back on Saturday with the final Chill Out session to close the summer out. Until then...ENJOY!
