Why UNCLASSICS? That’s easy: they aint the usual disco suspects!
Morgan Geist, one half of the acclaimed production duo Metro Area and owner of the innovative Environ label, has lovingly assembled this debut DJ mix featuring a selection of his favorite obscure electronic funk and disco tracks from 1978-1985.
UNCLASSICS will thrill dusty-fingered disco connoisseurs, hip lifestylers and electro neophytes alike. Its a perfectly-mixed fix of rare Italodisco (Alexander Robotnick-produced “Go On Do It by Victor or Plastic Modes “Baja Imperial), hot European boogie (Geists own remix of Dance Reactions “Disco Train), and even Soviet cosmic funk (Zoviets “Pacific) blended together seamlessly and incorporating Geists studio mastery.
Such spaced-out rarities (most available for the first time on CD) have turned heads and opened minds when played in sets from innovative DJs like Metro Area, disco don Daniel Wang (Balihu), cult hero DJ Harvey (ex-Ministry of Sound) and DJ I-F (the master behind the “Mixed Up in the Hague mix CD)…..
