to the second album in the Harmless ‘Mixology’ series. The first release in the
series was “Mixology: The Definitive Salsoul Mixes” which has been a consistent
best-seller since it was released almost exactly one year ago.
whole point of the ‘Mixology’ series is to highlight the output of different
labels throughout all the eras of Dance music’s illustrious history. So it gives
us great pleasure to welcome another iconic label into the fold – New York’s Sam
Records – a label which not only spanned the 1970’s Disco era successfully with
international smashes from Gary’s Gang and John Davis & the Monster
Orchestra, but also translated perfectly into the 1980s via its consistent
cutting edge releases and productions.
started by U.S. music biz veteran Sam Weiss in 1976, Sam Records was mostly
active between 1976 to 1983 – the key period for Disco and its eventual mutation
into the synthesiser driven dance groove of the early 1980’s – all areas which
were pioneered by Sam Records throughout its history.
