The 'Salsoul Sounds Familiar' EP is out on 27 July
One for lovers of classic disco here, as the legendary Salsoul Records announce a new collaboration with Italian collective Sounds Familiar.
Salsoul Records should need no introduction to most iDJ readers: they were, after all, one of the most important record labels of the disco era (along with the likes of Philadelphia International, Casablanca, Solar, Prelude, Private Stock, Sam Records, West End and TK Disco), not least because they were responsible for the first-ever commercially released 12-inch single (Double Exposure's Ten Per Cent, from 1976).
Sounds Familiar, meanwhile, are a loose collective of DJs, producers and promoters based in Italy, whose members include DJ Spinna, Mark Grusane, GE-OLOGY, Twice & Volcov, Kai Alce and Specter. And now the two have come together to present a doublepack vinyl collection of remixes and edits that, pleasingly, largely swerves the familiar classics (Joe Bataan's Latin Lover and Candido's Thousand Finger Man aside) in favour of some lesser-known gems.
The full tracklisting is as follows:
The Salsoul Orchestra - Chicago Bus Stop (Ooh, I Love It) [DJ Spinna Refreak]
The Strangers - Stimulation [Twice & Volcov Edit]
GE-OLOGY feat Sonya Distel - Refingered With Love
Joe Bataan - Latin Lover [Specter Edit]
Civil Attack - On The Phone [Mark Grusane Edit]
Jaime Lynn - You Ain't Got No Money [Twice & Volcov Edit]
The Salsoul Orchestra - Salsoul Rainbow [Kai Alcé NDATL Edit]
