Pal Joey – Hot Music compilation on BBE

September 12, 2013

Having a bit of a hectic week this week so just a quick one in advance of the soon-to-be-released Pal Joey presents Hot music retrospective on BBE.

Joey Longo gave us one of House’s all time classics with his first release in 1989 on Reynald “Crazy Frenchman” DeschampsKool Groove Records. Having worked at New York’s Vinylmania, he was well educated in the Garage hits – he fed Shep Pettibone’s Better Days mix of Carl Bean’s post-Stonewall anthem “Born This Way” (another classic NYC dub released just 3 years earlier) into a sampler and added some magic. Out the other end came the mother and father of a million Filtered-Disco House Tracks: Earth People – Dance.

The international success of “Dance” – not to mention “Hot Music” on the other side of the same 1989 release – gave Joey the opportunity to set up his own label Loop D’ Loop records, on which he’s been releasing music ever since. Anyway, as I said, I’m a bit snowed under so will keep this post short – if you don’t know his music, have a listen and then buy Pal Joey presents Hot music when it comes out next month (October 21st according to Spin).
