Groovy, Sexy & Soulful Part 2

Just like a few months ago a couple of groovy, sexy and soulful songs! One of the best songs of the seventies is ‘Dancing in the city’ by Marshall & Hain. It’s pop, disco, soul and a piece of jazz in one brilliant song! Have a listen and take a look at the marvelous Kit Hain. She looks so cool in this Dutch session for Toppop (and not wearing a bra was very fashionable at the time…)

Tom Moulton was one of the first to remix disco tracks. I listened to a lot of his classic remixes from the seventies up till now. He normally starts with a long instrumental intro with a few harmony vocals (sometimes he adds a break), in the middle are the vocal parts and he usually ends with a full orchestra playing (with one solo instrument). Dimitri from Paris does more or less the same on his Philly remixes. I tried to copy this trick on 'Guilty' from First Choice. DJ Dazler played the track on his Dazling Soul Show some time ago. Speaking of the show, I will host it next Saturday at midnight CET (6 PM local New York time) on Disco 935. And around the 15th next month, I will do a guest mix on For Disco Play Only. But first, enjoy 'Groovy, sexy and soulful part 2'!
