Qdup—the production/DJ moniker of our own Jayclue— returns with a funky collection of tunes featuring some amazing vocalists from Austin, Texas.
“Upside Down (Spence Remix)” by Mos Def & Diana Ross is a nice mix of Motown and hip hop
With this tune Brass Construction perhaps laid down the greatest side of disco dance floor funk of all time.
Samuel Jonathan Johnson brings the funk with this in-the-pocket classic, “Sweet Love,” off his one and only album entitled My Music.
Most folks that follow dance music these days probably recognize the bass riff and synth line from “What I Like” by Anthony and the Camp. But the OG is where it is at for me.
This remix of “Just the Way You Are”—from Bruno Mars’ debut album, Doo Wops & Hooligans—brings the pop R&B of the original into the disco.
DJ Stylus and DJ Meistro of The Sol Power All-Stars kicked off The Vinyl District’s all vinyl monthly at Den Of Thieves with a night of deep, tropical wax. Get the set as a free download!
The brilliantly named Edit Murphy does a really classic remix of Marvin Gaye with “Mercy,” found on his Motown Edits Vol. 1 release, resulting in a nice dubbed out disco vibe.
Alex Metric & Oliver are amazing producers in their own right but when they come together it makes magic. “Galaxy” embodies everything that I love about Nu-Disco.
Culture of Soul just released Joanne Wilson’s “Got to Have You” on 12″ vinyl and included it on their forthcoming Tropical Disco Hustle compilation. Currently on heavy rotation!
