Description

Jerome Derradji Presents The American Boogie Down

Format:DCD

Label: Past Due Records / BBE

BBE has teamed up with Chicago based Still Music to bring you a slice of phenomenally rare Disco / Boogie tracks. ‘The American Boogie Down’ was compiled and mixed by Still Music label owner; Jerome Derradji with the talents of Detroit vocal legend Paul Randolph featured on the mix.

This compilation is taken from ‘Past Due Records’. Still Music’s famous disco reissue division. It includes two unreleased tracks from Chicago’s Morning After and Detroit’s Monofide.

There is a natural synergy between BBE & Still (who have over the last four years championed house, soul, techno, afrobeat and disco sounds) and this meeting of musical minds could be the beginnings of a fruitful journey unearthing rare gems from the past as well bringing new talent to the fore.

Outside of New York City, the sound of late 1970s soul music was adhered to almost begrudgingly. Up to that point, most of Middle America had been allowed to remain blissfully behind the curve, appropriating the fashions coming out of the urban cultural centers at a leisurely pace. But by the time of disco music’s explosion, mass media and the major label machines were functioning effectively enough to make even the sleepiest burgs more aware.
