Imperial, View Wishlist. Cart 0. A leftfield disco oddity that will leave you feeling like a champion. Simplicity personified, let the hook take you there. Before Daft Punk there was Space.
Alton Ellis: Instead, Adderley got some friends together in the studio and plied them with drinks while the band cut this bit of surging, euphoric gospel. Every whoop, though, is true and from the heart. The Cannonball Adderley Quintet: Leonard Cohen: A song about drinking rat poison and liking it more than either water or wine. The Sonics: Pre-glam, pre—T. Tyrannosaurus Rex: Like the Righteous Brothers by way of the Free Design and Ennio Morricone, this was light years away from his current coordinates, but no less cinematic.
The Walker Brothers: From the first sprinkles of acoustic guitar to the stormcloud minor chords, from the desperate harmonies of the chorus to the sweet idea of falling in love out of the rain, this Hollies hit is all hook.
The Hollies: The Temptations: Bobby Darin: Patsy Cline: Accompanied by swooning trumpets and speakeasy bass, Gall makes her way through a tawdry jukebox-slapping cabaret populated by alcoholics and nymphettes.
France Gall: Skip to content Search query All Results. Pitchfork is the most trusted voice in music. Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Open share drawer. Marble Arch Records, Colpix Records, Scepter Records, Imperial, King Records, UNI Records, Columbia, Hammond stabs and tidal percussion carried this instrumental from DJ tool to peak time dance floor weapon.
A slo-mo disco anthem with the most yearning string arrangement of the decade. Patrice Rushen got her first record deal with the jazz label Prestige Records in , aged 20, releasing three albums on a fusion tip before moving over to Elektra to fully explore her funky side. Its insanely funky, minimal proto-house percussion and sleazy, double-entendre lyrics — Is it all over my face?
The perfect soundtrack for Saturday night on the floor, or for an acid trip indoors. Two tracks that prove Ron Hardy worked magic behind the decks and the reels. Pure fire. Philly Intl. Presumably licensing the track from Barclay who released the LP, Island Records are also represented by Wally Badarou who is credited on the sleeve.
Original copies are extremely rare…. Ma-mako, ma-ma-sa, mako-mako ssa. This Philly classic regularly serviced the church of Garage. An original edit pioneer, Hardy would tweak reel-to-reel tapes to extend breaks on disco tracks, maintaining pace on the floor and foreshadowing the birth of house. This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years.
A perfect example of the collector-hungry Discogs economy making a classic out of a cast-off. DJ Harvey says so. The mighty calypsonian, Winston Bailey was Shadow, a cosmic reggae disco legend from Trinidad who cut a couple of serious synth-heavy bangers in the early eighties.
An absolute monster of a track. Who can resist that chorus? Apparently concerning Patrice Rushen who also appears in this list , when you find the Purple one riding Pegasus naked, you know he wants it.
Macho took things one step further with this 18 minute odyssey that rocked countless gay bars and clubs. A good one to stick on if you need the loo. The perfect end to an evening of hot summer dancing. Besides Giorgio Moroder, Patrick Cowley is widely considered the godfather of electronic dance music. A bootleg surfaced in , but hopefully this will get a proper reissue one of these days….
Written and first recorded by Lamont Dozier, it was then covered in by Richie Havens who, unusually for a folk musician, funkified it. But it was NYC disco outfit Oyssey who, a year later, gave it full-body floor treatment, all the while maintaining its black power and soul fulfilment message.
The original is rare as the scarcest relic, going for a good ton every now and then. ESG , a co-release between 99 Records and Factory, was nothing short of a masterpiece: Before Daft Punk there was Space.
For its use of technicolour collage the video was also way ahead of its time. Sylvester is rightfully crowned the Queen Of Disco. One ever present though was the Rahbani Family, whose work with iconic vocalist Fairuz was perhaps the best known of a relatively vast musical empire. You better believe it. The track was a little too crypto for other DJs though; so Francois K was invited to join the already all-star lineup to give the the track a more dancefloor-friendly mix.
Like the original, the disco mix runs on dramatic dynamism; the wild web of sounds — vagrant trumpets, drunk guitars, dancing keys, casual latin-style percussion, loopy men and women — thickens and expands before eventually detonating in a massive I wanna go BANG!
