The impact and influence of the late Boyd Jarvis on the early development of the House music movement is absolutely undeniable.
His early productions around 1983 didn’t sound like Disco, Boogie or the contemporary R&B flavours of that time. The pulsating rhythm and haunting keyboards works of his music was introducing New York to a sound that didn’t have a name at that time, which eventually became: House music.
Most people are familiar with his Visual project or the early demos of Colonel Abrams he played on, but his body of work goes deeper with plenty of collaborations with producers such as Timmy Regisford, Joe Claussell, François K, and Glenn Toby amongst others. His keyboard wizardries can be heard on lots of records you might not be aware of.
This mix features some of his finest originals, productions, remixes, and music featuring his unique vision behind the keys!
