JD Twitch and JG Wilkes, better known as Optimo, have been tapped to mix Fabric 52.

The Glaswegian duo are known for their wide-ranging and atypical track selection, which often mixes up post-punk, disco and experimental music with contemporary house and techno, as heard on their 2007 mix Walkabout. But for Fabric 52, the pair chose a slightly different tack, focusing more than usual on club tracks.

“We’ve been fortunate enough in the past that labels have let us experiment a bit and put together selections that make really diverse and sometimes quite difficult mixes,” says Wilkes. “With Fabric 52, we were really excited by the idea of a dance floor-centric mix of tracks.”

Dimitri from Paris to release
Get Down With The Philly Sound

Featuring platinum selling hits from Melvin & Blue Notes, Teddy Pendergrass, The Trammps and The Jackson 5

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

Sven Vath In The Mix (The Sound Of The 10th Season)

Posted in Dj Mix, Minimal, Tech House, Techno, Various on November 12, 2009 by dk

Cocoon Recordings boss Sven Vath will release Sounds of the 10th Season in November.

It is nearing the end of the year after all. And that means that Uncle Sven has finally wrapped another season in Amnesia on the White Isle and is set to let everyone know the tracks that worked the best for him. This being a big anniversary for the party, though, means that Vath has a little something up his sleeve. In addition to the usual double disc mix, there is a special DVD as well which includes a 43-minute performance video of Sven playing at Amnesia.

But if watching Sven in HD isn’t your cup of tea, that’s no problem: There’ll also be a performance from Underworld, a short documentary about the creation of the 10 Years in Ibiza campaign (expect funny footage from the promo photo shoot) and plenty of interviews with Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice and the Vath man himself.
