Dimitri From Paris
Get Down With The Philly Sound
BBE Records
May 18, 2010

 
BBE Records proudly presents its fifth and arguably most exciting compilation with The French DJ and ambassador of disco – Dimitri from Paris. Get Down With The Philly Sound focuses on Dimitri’s essential disco era tracks, all were made in Philadelphia, and feature the core of the rhythm section that created and defined the sound of the genre. Dimitri’s selection on CD1 traces the evolution of the ’70s disco groove from the first ever disco hit record, to the rejuvenation of the Jackson 5’s career, interspersed with obscurities such as Charles Mann to the magnificent Teddy Pendergrass; Philly International’s answer to Marvin Gaye. CD2 of the compilation pays homage to the original creators and innovators of the remix and extended edits with reworkings exclusively by Dimitri from Paris.
 
Undisputedly, Philadelphia gave birth to and defined the brand new Disco genre. Gamble and Huff’s sound evolved from the simpler arrangements of the late 1960s into a style featuring lush strings, thumping basslines and sliding hi-hat rhythms. The anthemic “The Love I Lost” by Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in 1973, laid the blueprint for how a disco record should sound. Recording engineer Joe Tarsia founded Sigma Sound in 1968, and virtually of all the disco recordings released on Philadelphia International, Salsoul, Philly World, Gold Mind and Atlantic were made at his studio, thereby maintaining the unique sound of Philadelphia. Located at 212 N. 12th Street in Philadelphia, it was only the second studio in the USA to offer 24-track recording and the first in the country to use console automation. Sigma’s sound was so strong that mainstream acts queued up to record there: David Bowie recorded his Young Americans album there, Dusty Springfield recorded A Brand New Me, while Elton John’s 1977 Philadelphia sessions were in such demand recently that they provided a hit single (‘Are You Ready For Love’) and CD re-issue 3 decades after the recordings were first made.
 
Nearly all of the disco output from Philadelphia between 1973 and 1980 featured the work of the same studio musicians, known as The Family or MFSB (Mother, Father, Sister, Brother). And of course, these same musicians were also known as The Salsoul Orchestra, Baker/Harris/Young Productions, The John Davis Monster Orchestra or The Montana Sextet (depending on who the recording was for). The classic line up of musicians included Earl Young (Founder of The Trammps and creator of the 4/4 disco drum pattern which laid the template for every dance record since) and Karl Chambers on drums, Norman Harris, Roland Chambers, Bobby Eli and TJ Tindall on guitar, Ronnie Baker and Winnie Wilford on bass, Vince Montana (vibes/arranger and founder of the Salsoul Orchestra) and Larry Washington on percussion and Ron Kersey, Leon Huff and Thom Bell on keyboards. Don Renaldo took care of strings and horns. Tom Moulton (Pioneer of the Disco Mix, the 12 inch vinyl format, the break down sections of records and supplier of missing masters for this compilation) influenced the popularity of the songs with his legendary mixes.
 
By 1975, Philadelphia International and the Philadelphia soul and disco genres it helped define had largely eclipsed Motown and the Motown Sound in popularity and Gamble and Huff were the premiere producers of soul with nearly 200 gold and platinum records to their credit. Salsoul capitalized on the success of the sound by employing the same musicians whilst focusing predominantly on club music. Notable acts rushed to Philadelphia to capture the sound: Ex Motown cohorts The Jacksons and Eddie Kendricks utilized the above classic line-up of musicians to embrace the new sound and extend their careers.
 
Now, for the first time ever, Gamble and Huff have given a label access to the multi track tapes of some Philly International platinum selling classics such as “The Love I Lost” and “Bad Luck” featuring the vocals of the late great Teddy Pendergrass, the first black male to release five consecutive platinum albums in the United States. This tribute to the creators of disco is presented on a limited edition double CD, and three deluxe multiple vinyl releases, exclusively featuring Dimitri’s remixes and edits. There will be an additional vinyl double pack containing remixes by Francois Kevorkian, John Morales and Tom Moulton

Posted in Dance, Electro, EMN Promo, Funk, Indie, Pop, Promotions, Punk with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 22, 2010 by E.N.


The Young Punx return for their second studio album, a startling and inventive exploration of the deliberate destruction of genre boundaries in electronic music. Probably the first album in history to have toyed with drum and bass, heavy metal, electropop and cuban timba within the first 5 minutes (!) “Mashpop and Punkstep” is a vibrant manifesto for the next generation of mashup music. Featuring the epic collaboration with Memphis hip hop Don ‘Count Bass D’ – “Ready For the Fight” (already heard as the theme music for EA Games “Fight Night 4″ and as official entry music for world middleweight champion Arthur Abraham), the J-pop electro disco of SugarCandySuperNova and the Ragga House of “Juice and Gin” the album spans Puccini Opera, Punk rock, hip hop, synth pop, Japanese rock and much more…

“[The Young Punx are...] jubilantly shredding genre boundaries, swooping like crack crazed Magpies to grab their favourite shiny bits with maniacal gusto” – Clash Magazine

Finally Album from the Young Punx!
The Young Punx has been around for a while now,here and everywhere,their best work ‘Mashpop and Punkstep’ sees the day march 22.

Free Download – Alex Gopher’s remix of ‘Echoes In My Head’

Posted in Electro, Electronic, EMN Promo, House, Promotions with tags , , , , , on March 22, 2010 by E.N.


Alex Gopher has been having a very busy Spring season. On top of releasing his double CD album this week titled “My New Remixes,” which features a compilation of all of Alex’s best remixes from the past 2 years, he will be releasing a new EP on Go 4 Music (his own label) in early April.

To coincide with the release we have a free track to download from the forthcoming EP, Alex’s rework of
Pablo Decoder & Tim Healey “Echoes In My Head”

About Alex Gopher
Over the course of his career, which began with fellow French cohorts Air at age 15, Gopher has been one of France’s most in-demand remixers, DJs and producers, releasing albums and EPs on his own labels, Solid and Go 4 Music, as well as on Kitsune and BTK, while collaborating with the likes of Jamiroquai, Vanessa Paradis, Mr Oizo, Nightmares On Wax, Roy Davis Jr, Sly & Robbie, Zazie, Bob Sinclar, and Bootsy Collins.

His mischievous house production work with Etienne de Crecy as Super Discount, led to one of the French Touch movement’s cornerstone releases, the ‘Super Discount’ LP in 1996. Gopher’s subsequent solo LP “You, My Baby and I”, released in 1997, also became a key album in the French Touch and was followed by Gopher’s anthem ‘The Child’ in 1999.

Gopher was recruited by designer Yves Saint Laurent in 2000 to produce tracks for his upcoming runway show in Paris. Gopher delivered ten tracks for the runway, before working with French underground artist Demon to reshape the tracks for an album they dubbed ‘Wuz’. A critical hit in France and beyond, this darker atmospheric album shows Gopher’s more brooding sensibilities.

Gopher and de Crecy reformed Super Discount 2 in 2004, touring the world and performing live at the biggest electro, rock and dance music festivals and clubs, while their track “Someone Like You”, featuring Camille on vocals, became an international hit.

Gopher is an exceptional instrumentalist, and Air recruited him to play bass on their debut album ‘Premier Symptomes’. He further demonstrated his talents in this realm on his 2007 self titled LP, which combined New Wave accents and electro influences and featured Gopher on vocals, as well as playing guitar, drums and piano.
