Various : Mixology: Sam Records Extended Play

2 x CD - #HURTXCD126

Welcome to the second album in the Harmless ‘Mixology’ series. The first release in the series was “Mixology: The Definitive Salsoul Mixes” which has been a consistent best-seller since it was released almost exactly one year ago.
The whole point of the ‘Mixology’ series is to highlight the output of different labels throughout all the eras of Dance music’s illustrious history. So it gives us great pleasure to welcome another iconic label into the fold – New York’s Sam Records – a label which not only spanned the 1970’s Disco era successfully with international smashes from Gary’s Gang and John Davis & the Monster Orchestra, but also translated perfectly into the 1980s via its consistent cutting edge releases and productions.
Originally started by U.S. music biz veteran Sam Weiss in 1976, Sam Records was mostly active between 1976 to 1983 – the key period for Disco and its eventual mutation into the synthesiser driven dance groove of the early 1980’s – all areas which were pioneered by Sam Records throughout its history.
Containing 13 brand new scintillating re-edits of key Sam classics by Soul Clap, 6thBorough Project, Todd Terje, Maxxi Soundsystem, Jacques Renault, Andy Ash, Prince Language, Walker & Royce, Runaway, Clinton Houlker, Bonar Bradberry, Volta Bureau & Catz ‘N Dogz plus a 1 hour continuous mix by the compiler, Jacques Renault, “Mixology: Sam Records Extended Play” is a fascinating example of how well the Sam releases have held up over the last 30 years.
This beautiful package comes in double CD digi-pack with 8 page booklet plus notes by Jacques Renault.
