New York Noise

Do you need some NY Dance music? Of course you do.

New York's Shirley Lites disco master piece ''Heath you up (Melt you Down)'' , which was originally released in 1983 on West End Records was re-edited by Gerd and released on Clone's Box Jams pt.1. The original version is from the "end" of the pure Disco era and was heavily rotated in the New York clubs. Definately one of my favorite disco songs from this era, listen and hear why.

Arthur Russell (one of the greatest songwriter's ever, In my opinion) released "Let's Go Swimming" on Upside/Rough Tradein 1986. One of disco's earliest DJ's, Walter Gibbons, a close friend of Russell's and New York native, helped mix and re-edit the track. This song is a true testimony to both legendary NY underground dance icons at their best. This dance floor classic was eventually released on Soul Jazz Records retrospective collection of Arthur Russell, titled The World of Arthur Russell. A true classic at that. Hear for yourself.
