V/A - American Boogie Down: Mixed by Jerome Derradji (BBE)
BBE enlisted Chicago based Jerome Derradji to create a compilation of boogieing discoid gems and he came up with American Boogie Down. It is a wonderful compilation that features the type of music that will lift spirits and bring smiles to all and sundry. The material on this compilation was sourced primarily from Past Due, a sister label to Derradji’s Still Music, which was set up to reissue obscure and forgotten disco gems from the 70s and 80s. All the tracks on this album are excellent, but standouts include DeVarne’s key blessed You Are Number One, DIT’s magnificent You Bring Out The Best In Me and Lonnie Givens’ stargazing Galaxy. A discofied dream!
