Forgotten Treasure: Paul McCartney & Wings “Good Night Tonight” (1979)

Many years ago, my friend used to run a Post-Punk night at Korova Bar in Montreal during the same time I also did a night there. I’d go to her Post-Punk night and she’d come to my Disco Boogie night and we’d support each other while enjoying slightly different styles …

Forgotten Treasure: The Jammers “Be Mine Tonight” (1982)

Disco is a goldmine for heart melting romantic themed music, and in light of this upcoming lover’s holiday, I thought I would share one of my favorites. It’s not a conventional Valentine’s Day song but I think the message is pretty clear. The opening line is what does it for …

In Memory of Donald Byrd  Donald Byrd was a legendary and striking Jazz musician and has the longest discography, releasing albums since 1955. Mr. Byrd has been sampled over and over again, specifically within Hip Hop, and the first song I ever heard by Donald Byrd was Love Has Come …

Forgotten Treasure: Don Ray “Got To Have Loving” (1978) + The Revenge Rework

Don Ray’s Got To Have Loving features one of my favorite Disco breaks of all time. This song was among my earliest encounters with classic Disco music, and was the beginning of my obsession with Disco breaks. When I used to DJ, I’d shamelessly drop this jam in half way …

Forgotten Treasure: Gino Soccio “Who Dunnit?” (1982)

I love listening to Gino Soccio. If you want to get into Italo Disco but don’t know where to start, I’d say Gino Soccio should be one of the first thing you get your hands on. Fellow MIMS writer Matt Englund already highlighted this under rated disco monster with his …

Forgotten Treasure: Nightlife Unlimited “Peaches & Prunes” (Ron Hardy Edit)

This is a really funny one because we posted this years ago and I’ve been playing the track for ages now and I somehow got the titles of the A and B sides of the white label vinyl completely mixed up. We even played this on one of the earliest …

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: The Jones Girls “You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else” (1979)

Jon Dasilva & Maceo Plex’s Love Somebody Else is a supreme House remix of the 1979 R&B hit by The Jones Girls – You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else. I heard it on a Maceo Plex mix many months ago and all I had to listen to since was …

Future Classic: LTJ Xperience “Mr. Man”

LTJ aka Luca Trevisi of Bologna, Italia does it again! We just posted a forgotten treasure pick of his last week but I couldn’t help writing another post on his newest masterpiece, which I only heard this morning. Packed with a funky guitar riff and soulful male vocals (Marvin Gaye I think), …

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 …

A few weeks ago, I was on the hunt for a song I heard on a house mix, and all I had to go on was the artist name, LTJ (and not LTJ Bukem the British Drum n’ Bass artist I used to bump to in grade 9). This was …
