Well, it’s a historic occasion and when we realised we were coming up to our 100th release we knew it better be a work of art……so here it is folks……
Already one of the most anticipated releases of the year by the Dance Music community, “Philly Re-Grooved: The Tom Moulton Remixes” puts the world’s greatest and most respected veteran mixer of all time with one of the first labels which catered to the emerging Disco sound of the early 1970’s – Philly Groove. Philly Groove exploded onto the world stage with a huge brace of hits for the Delfonics then subsequently followed through with the international smash “Armed & Extremely Dangerous” by First Choice which well and truly ushered the Disco age into worldwide consciousness. Philly Groove followed through with a slew of beautifully recorded gems from the likes of Tapestry, Nat Turner (featuring Major Harris), Finishing Touch and further Disco smashes from First Choice, The Delfonics and the Philly Groove Orchestra (essentially M.F.S.B. under another name). However most of Philly Groove’s prestigious output was released before the 12 inch format was invented (co-incidentally by Tom Moulton himself). When the opportunity arose for Tom Moulton to go back to the original 2” masters of these early Disco gems and remix them he jumped at the opportunity. So finally we are treated to the full glory of the Philly Groove catalogue remixed for the full 12” versions by the master himself. THAT’S why it’s our 100th release!
Also includes the hard-to-find “We’re On The Right Track” by Ultra High Frequency and two fantastic bonus tracks which are blowing up on UK Radio and Club’s right now – the wonderful “Don’t Put Me Down” by Finishing Touch and the utterly sensational 9.46 “Whatcha Gonna Do” – Heaven n’ Hell which will be one of the soundtracks to Summer 2010!
There will be much interest in Philly remix projects through this Summer following Dimitri From Paris’s “Get Down With Philly Sound” album out in May and Tom Moulton’s “Philly Re-Grooved” out in June so make sure you’re in the loop!
