Over these past few years Damon Riddick aka Dam-Funk has become a household name amongst all the Boogie, Disco, Funk and Soul heads. And with good reason, DAME is one of the most talented, yet most humble and positive cats out there. This mix came out in 2008 as part …

Forgotten Treasure: Steve Harvey “Tonight” (Francois K Remix) (1983)

Last night I came home after a long night of work and found a sweet new MIMS gem dug up by fellow disco homie Devon Eve. During the boogie breakdown I heard a guitar riff (4:02-4:09) that inspired a familiar-yet-mysterious melody in my head. The imaginary blend of both tracks …

Forgotten Treasure: Sumy “Funkin In Your Mind” (1982)

Sumy’s Funkin In Your Mind is a great funky throw back tune for all you smooth 80’s boogie lovers. And if you can’t really get on board with this beat, you most certainly can’t argue with the album cover- it’s absolute gold! To consider this a forgotten treasure would be …

Classic Mixes: Paul Nice “Soul on the Grill vol.2″ (2003)

Second instalment of my two favorite 80’s Boogie mixes called Soul on the Grill from NY’s Paul Nice, a name very well known by diggers but still somewhat slept on by the average listener. These Soul on the Grill mixtapes are pretty much the main reason why I’ve never done one …

Jorun Bombay’s “Rock The Discotek”

Going back to my East Coast roots with this one. Jorun Bombay, in my mind, has been one of Canada’s best kept secrets. Well, he used to be anyways. When the likes of Jazzy Jeff is pushing your music on his mixtapes, you know you have arrived. When you look …

Forgotten Treasure: Yvonne Gage “Doin’ It In A Haunted House” (1984)

This is a rare and humorous take on Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and is a Halloween boogie gem. Yvonne Gage’s Doin’ It In A Haunted House was released in 1984 on CBS Records/CIM, and is the absolute definition of a disco one hit wonder that has long been forgotten. I bought …

Forgotten Treasure: Cloud One “Flying High” (1981)

If you’re into soul/disco/boogie etc, chances are you know Patrick Adams (or you just don’t know that you know him). Theoretically, a DJ could play entire sets exclusively comprised of Adams’ releases 1) without anyone noticing and 2) have it sound just as fresh, diverse, and down-right enjoyable as any …

Forgotten Treasure: Belle Epoque “Miss Broadway” (1978)

“Miss Broadway” is equal parts guilty pleasure and dollar bin treasure. One that may have dancers thinking that it’s this super rare and hard to find when in fact you’ve probably seen it a bunch of times in the 1 dollar bins and weren’t attracted by the cover art. Belle Epoque was a …
