Enjoy over two and a half hours of non-stop funky, swishy, classy New York City style disco-era classics. Every one of them is a personal favorite of mine. These are the exciting sounds and intricate rhythms of Manhattan – City of Satin. The mood is elegant funk that leads us to an elevation in spirit – a higher level of disco-teric understanding. There is celebration in the music but it’s not without it’s natural counterpoint, a certain disco sadness. There are instrumental journeys, empowering chants, soaring vocal duets and there is The Hustle. Throughout the collection there remains an authentic musical mastery of the form that is as powerful and magical today as it was thirty-five years ago.
This is serious disco, people.

Now, this one really was my jam. Empress. Get into her. Sister Dimension owned this track. This was the sound of Whisper’s ( Sunday night at Pyramid. ) The levels on this rare 12″ mix are all over the place – so be ready for some ear bleed. It’s worth it though – the “rap” is hilarious but then again, this was 1981. Any lyric that starts off with a desperately shreeking, “Somebody help me!” is good for me. I hear you babe… I’m dying to be dancing.
