Claudja Barry is one artist that continues to shine. Her first 12" single was "Sweet Dynamite" (Salsoul). Her most recent release "I Will Stand" (DonnaJean) topped the charts once again. In between these two it's been hits like the multimillion selling Platinum disco anthem "Boogie Woogie Dancin' Shoes" (Chrysalis), "Trippin' On the Moon" (Personal), "Work Me Over / I Will Follow" (TRS), "Down & Counting" (Epic), and "Good Time" (Radikal) that have maintained Claudja's presence on the international music scene. Her success has not been lost on the world of pop music: In Canada alone she's been nominated for nine Juno Awards (the Canadian Grammy) and was awarded the Juno for Best Female Artist.
Glamorous, multilingual and highly traveled Claudja has sung in some the world's best venues - among them Studio 54, The Saint, (NYC), The Palace (Paris), Budokan Hall (where she won the Silver Prize at the Tokyo Music Festival), and The Verona Arena (Italy). She is an artist whose stage presence, longevity, and performances have been noted and appreciated not only in the arena of pop/dance music, but also in film, theatre and television as an accomplished actress.
The demands of her millions of fans across the world have been answered with the chart-topping hit, "I Will Stand", and her return to the stage and screen. It is clear that Claudja has enjoyed longevity in the entertainment business, but she believes that even after all her success, the best is yet to come.

The Jones Girls consisted of sisters Brenda, Valorie and Shirley Jones. They served as backup singers for Lou Rawls, Teddy Pendergrass, Aretha Franklin, and Le Pamplemousse (AVI Records). They worked with Diana Ross from 1975-78 and were the backup singers on Linda Clifford's 1978 album If My Friends Could See Me Now.
Their biggest hit was "You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else". The song broke the Billboard Magazine Top 40 at #38 in May 1979. The song was also a Top 5 R&B hit.
An additional hit followed in 1980, with the single "I Just Love The Man", charting at #9 in January 1981. The less successful, "Nights Over Egypt", (released in 1981, charting at R&B #23 in 1982) is currently a cult classic that receives more airplay on urban radio stations than their previous bigger hits.
Valorie Jones died on December 2, 2001 in Detroit at the age of 45.

Originally released in 1978 as a soundtrack to an italian TV-show, this legendary and super-rare Italo disco album features members of cult 70's electronic prog rock / horror soundtrack composers Goblin, with 3 long tracks, of strung out druggy dancefloor excess, arpeggios, animal noises, tribalpercussion, and eerie female vocals that give it a horror movie feel at times.

"He came to protect you.
He's growing every day.
He's made out of mud and letters.
He uses scissors to edit obscure tracks.
No one, except his master, could destroy him...
The time has come for the world to experience the power of the Golem.
Each release will be around a specific theme."
For the first one, the Golem dig 3 gems from overseas...
Sumak is an epic space-funk track from the middle east recorded in the 70's ! And never pressed on a 12" !!!
Klout is an edit of a reggae tune from the other side of the world...High infectious groove !
And Pyramide is a Disco/Balearic arabian song from late 70's...
These 3 tracks were never repressed and they are entirely re-mastered for maximum power !

You know you're doing something right when Greg Wilson's knocking at your door. "He Approached me on Myspace a few months ago," recalls Croatian producer Ilija Rudman, "because he was into what he was hearing."
Although's he's been actively making music for almost a decade. The late 20's producer's really come into is own in 2007 with releases on Deep Freeze, Infant and Rong Music, successful studio ventures with Phonique and Spirit Catcher ("Night Vision" and "Inside (Good Idea)" respectly)and a deliciously deep disco-house cut "After Midnight" for Love Is War Music, the new label headed up by 1Gnition's Marcus J Knight.
Ilija's funk, analogue-heavy sound will appeal if Norwegian Balearik or 2020's electronic house rings your bell. But why's it happening now? Simple... "I've been collecting the original tools that the producers 20 years ago using to get that authentic electro-disco funk sound. So the tracks i make with this setup today, better things start to happen."
As well as engaging in more collaborations than your average rap superstar, he's stepping up the place at his own label, Red Music, the "eclectic disco" imprint he set up in 2003, with releases planned every month. So what can we expect to hear when he gets together with Greg wilson? "We're working on some re-edits but we're also making some original music as The Barbarella. It's the freshest thing i'm doing. This is something for the next year so maybe it's too early to talk about this, however."
Thanks Ilija for this lovely mixes, and for your symphaty.

Space is a French electronic music band, one of the most notable artists of the short lived Space Disco music scene (a variation of Hi-NRG Disco and part of 70's Eurodisco).
Space was founded in 1977 by Didier Marouani (also known as Ecama). The first three albums — Magic Fly, Deliverance and Just Blue — were an immediate and staggering success (they sold over 12 million records all over the world).
The album Magic Fly, which is widely considered to be their best work, was released in audio cd in 2001, 24 years after its original release. Although Didier Marouani left the band in 1979, the other two members Roland Romanelli and Jannick Top released in 1980 the album Deeper Zone under the name of Space. Then Space officially collapsed in 1981.

"Peg" is a song by rock group Steely Dan (formed by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker), which was released as a single from their 1977 album Aja.
The guitar solo on the track was attempted by seven top session guitarists before Jay Graydon's version became the "keeper". Rick Marotta played drums on the track; and the distinctive whistling sound in the intro is Tom Scott playing the lyricon, a type of electronic wind instrument.
The song describes a young female in a questionnable debut scene or photo shoot. She is warned that those images may "Come back to [her]". Note the playful reference to mid-20th century cinema and perhaps less-than-savory Times Square movie houses or magazines in the chorus: "you see it all," then quietly "in 3-D!"
The version on this post is a intrumental edit of "Peg", included in the record "Community Service" [CS-1].

Lowrell Simon (born March 18, 1943 in Chicago) is an American soul singer. He began as a singer in The LaVondells, which became The Vondells and enjoyed some regional success in the 1960s with the song "Lenore". When the Vondells broke up, Simon formed the group The Lost Generation alongside several Chicago friends, and the group scored several US hits between 1969 and 1974. After the band's breakup, Simon made contributions to the soundtrack to the 1974 film "Three the Hard Way", and wrote tracks for the 1976 debut album of Mystique, which featured other former members of The Lost Generation. He also wrote the tune "Dance Master" in 1974 for Willie Henderson and the 1979 tune "All about the Paper" for Loleatta Holloway.
In the late 1970s, Lowrell Simon began recording under only his first name. He signed to Liberace's label, AVI Records, and released an album in late 1979 entitled Lowrell. The album's second single, "Mellow Mellow Right On" b/w "You're Playing Dirty", was a #32 US R&B hit that year. The song has been sampled copiously, including by Massive Attack, Imagination and Common.

For a future-disco hero, LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy is unusually self-conscious. Before you hear a single kick-drum sample on his excellent second album, Murphy seems to be intentionally setting the bar low, giving the massive, clattering dance-floor killer that opens the disc the awesomely pathetic title of "Get Innocuous."
The first LCD track, 2002's "Losing My Edge," was an anthem for aging hipsters everywhere; Silver's first single, "North American Scum," is about the existential crisis of being American at this particular historical moment. Even though it's difficult to imagine Murphy ever exhorting, "Everybody dance now," musically he owes a huge debt to house-music masters like Clivilles and Cole. Putting aside the world-weary Bowie-meets-Byrne vocals, the bulk of the tracks -- "Innocuous," "Us v Them," "Sound of Silver" -- could be lost late-Eighties dance classics. But somehow it all holds together as an album (the New Wave-y tunes "Someone Great" and "All My Friends" help), and by the end, ex-indie-rocker Murphy comes full circle, returning to his roots with the Pavement-meets-Morrissey comic lament "New York I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down."

For the 1st one, im proud to introduce a very special Friend and Dj... Rui Trintaeum.
Rui Martins Pereira is the owner, programmer and resident Dj of Club 31 in Porto ( http://www.trintaeum.com/). His connection into the music starts on the earlier 80's, when he created the band'Culto da Ira' in witch one he was the bass player. This band has been the 2nd best one on the modern music conquest 'Rock Rendez Vous' witch has given them the opportunity of getting one of their tracks on the album released by this club. In 1986 he starts djing at 'No Sense' Club in Porto, suggesting new sound influences. An year later, he opens 'Loco Mosquito bar' in witch one he has been also resident Dj ,this time introducing danceable sounds. For about ten years has been out of this activity and returns on 1995 to open 'Trintaeum Club', assuming the djing during the week and betting in a dashing and proper music selection of national and international Djs for the weekend, witch made this club the one for music lovers and a marking place in Porto. Rui Trintaeum, as he's known, has a residence at Trintaeum '31 Stereosound' and besides that, played in many other places, clubs and music festivals. Along these years he played with many respectable artists as Carl Craig, Jonh Tejada, Recloose, Pepe Bradock, Âme, Henrik Schwarz, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas, Rainer Truby, Pete Herbert, Gilb'r, Boozoo Bajou, among others... In 2005 he joined Antony Millard and Wilson Edgar on the I.N.F.I.L.T.R.A.T.I.O.N. project (http://www.i-n-f-i-l-t-r-a-t-i-o-n.com/).

The song was sent to the United States after being recorded in Jamaica; the idea for a single was brought up so True could make profits from a television commercial she was making in Jamaica (an attempted coup in the country hindered the ability for her to get her commercial profits in cash). Buddah Records liked the sound, and originally only released the song to discos in the winter of 1976. The popularity of "More, More, More" was immense. Widespread listener interest convinced Buddah to release the single commercially in the spring. The song rose to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number five on the UK Singles Chart.

Assembled by the production team of Gamble & Huff, MFSB was the house band for their Philadelphia International Records label and provided both the signature smooth Philadelphia sound that dominated the early 1970's for the acts who recorded at their Sigma Sound Studios, including The Delfonics, The O'Jays, Blue Magic, The Spinners, Teddy Pendergrass and Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes; and the "high hat" disco sounds that dominated the late 1970's with groups like The Trammps, First Choice, Ripple and Double Exposure.

Imagination was a trio from the U.K. that put a synthesized and often clubby spin on soul groups from the 70's. In fact, a couple of 70's groups have direct ties to Imagination. Leee John and Ashley Ingram spent time during that decade playing supportive roles in the Delfonics and Chairmen of the Board, prior to Imagination's formation. Along with drummer Errol Kennedy, vocalist John and bassist Ingram formed the group in 1981. By the end of that year, they already had their first album released and a minor hit in the form of that album's title track, "Body Talk." The group's second album, 1982's In the Heat of the Night, was their most successful, spawning a trio of U.S. R&B chart hits in the form of "Just an Illusion" (#27), "Magic and Lights" (#52), and "Changes" (#46). Those singles were even more popular in their home country, with the first pair reaching the top five. The remix collection Night Dubbing appeared the following year, as did the group's third proper album, Scandalous. The group's success fizzled until their mid 90's breakup (at the time, Leee John was the only remaining original member), though 1984's "This Means War" was able to put a dent in the U.S. R&B chart. John remained active in the entertainment industry, hosting U.K. television programs and continuing his recording career as a solo artist and collaborator. Since the group's split, several compilations have been released.

I think most of the "disco people" knows "Made In USA - Made In USA" Lp, released in 1977 on De-Lite Records, specialy because he includes the superb "Melodies" (who have been re-edited on Moxie under the name "melodica").
This post is not about "Melodies"... Is about other great track included in the lp, called "Shake Your Body", here with a SDC Edit... ;)
"When would the war stop? That's what I wanted to know...the war inside my soul."
That was the question that inspired Marvin Gaye to create his most deeply realized record, What's Going On?. This 1971 album went against the grain at Motown, which had become mired by this time in its hit-factory mentality of the '60s. Berry Gordy even fought with Gaye over releasing the album. Fortunately the artist prevailed over the businessman, and Gaye's masterpiece reached the masses, generating a stellar response and record sales (three songs went all the way to number one). What's Going On? magically combines Gaye's deeply arresting vocals and socially conscious lyrics with the perfectly flowing sound of his fellow musicians, making the album the single greatest statement of musical genius to ever come out of Motown. Gaye uses the medium of music to preach, exploring with soulful eloquence the social ills of the day--drug addiction, environmental devastation, police brutality, taxes--themes that still resonate today. Despite his often bleak observations of the times, Marvin's overall message offers the promise of redemption. The overriding message of What's Going On? is ultimately one of hope: we can save ourselves ONLY if we can learn to "holler love, love, love across the nation/together and holy/we can claim love our salvation." Filled with the utmost of sincerity, Marvin sings almost as if divinely inspired, rising to new heights, free of any cliché R&B phrasings.
This Shhhhh Edit makes use of the outtakes for a mellow string intro and neat loops to bring out the groove, making the eventual appearance of Marvin's heart-rending chorus all the more soul-affirming...

The Glimmers got on board for the remix, that is an actualization of the original, because they are fans of the band. They included their version of the Adonis classic “No Way Back” on their Fabric compilation after playing Lisbon’s Lux where Zé Pedro Moura, the bass player from Pop Dell’Arte, is also a resident DJ. After that, the connection was obvious and this remix is further proof of that.
The Glimmers, of course, do not need any further introduction: they are among the finest crafters of sounds for the modern dancefloor and have here taken a classic and brought it to the 21st century.

This was an experimental project where the sound isn't well definited. The opening track is psychedelic disco with a horror theme. "Poison Ivy" is more pop, where as "One On One" brushes up soundtrack sounds. "Good Time Man" and "Love Shortage" are good tracks which could be exploited better. "Step By Step" is the big one: wonderful disco track with repetitive vocals, piano and hypnotic arrangements. The only defect is its shortness: i've always wondered whether the 12" exists!! ...

The original having already turned up on one of those Supersound double headers, and been re-edited by Beatfanatic on GAMM, you should all be pretty familiar with Vangelis and Demis Roussos' Balearic cosmic gem "Let It Happen".
Here Lindstrom and Solale deliver their own interpretation of the track (also available as the exclusive on Lindstrom's "Late Night Tales" compilation CD), which transforms the lush acoustics of the original into a slowly building stripped-down electronic groovathon. This 10" includes the pair's vocal and instrumental version, plus another short story, this time by Rob Hindle.
