Touch - Without You

One more Timmy Regisford re-mix. Another hot bass line.

1979, Supertronics Record

Without You

Pal Joey - Runaway

Even though I'm sad that so many record stores are closing in New York, I'm still encouraged by the possibility of choice vinyl flea market finds. Last weekend, I happened upon a trove of late 80's/early 90's house. All it took was an 808 and a dream in those days...

Pal Joey squeeze some sounds of his mixing board that are all over popular music now. This is his take of Roy Ayers' Running Away with a touch of Sister Sledge. Pretty genius, if you ask me. Check out his website.


Thelma Houston - Ride to the Rainbow

This is the b-side to Love Machine, a more conventional disco ditty. This always gets stuck in my head when I listen to it.

Motown Records, 1979

Kebekelektric - Electric War

This is a track from a compilation of songs that were favorites of Ron Hardy's, the dj at the Chicago club the Music Box. This has sort of a punk Giorgio Moroder vibe to it. I really like the break. I'm guessing that going out at the Music Box was a pretty unique experience.

Chocolate - It's That East Street Beat

A Timmy Regisford & Boyd Jarvis co-production. This is the club mix from 1985 on Supertronic Records. Apparently, this was a track that Ron Hardy used to play at the Music Box.

TZ - I Got the Hots For You

This is some good old fashioned NYC early 80's sleaze.

I became a dance music addict after going to Club Shelter in New York. I still go there. The next few posts are songs that Shelter's DJ, Timmy Regisford, played some role in making.

Timmy and Boyd Jarvis collaborated on a few tracks that came out in this period. The best known (and one of my all-time faves) is probably Visual's The Music's got Me. This track, under the name TZ, is from 1983 on Street Sounds records.

Theo Vaness - Sentimentally It's You

This a re-edit I did. The original has a really tacky vocal part - so I essentially just snipped that out. I heard Danny Krivit play this once, and I've pretty much copied his edit. DJ alert - mixes well with You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real).

The photo is a lot to handle.
