Song of the Day #1873

Song of the Day: 1979 Disconet Top Tune Medley [YouTube link], mixed by Jersey native John Matarazzo and Brooklyn-born Mike Arato, is one of my all-time favorite Disconet gems. It was heard not only in clubs but played by Paco on “Disco 92, WKTU” in New York City, typically blaring from car radios on 86th Street in Brooklyn [YouTube link]. It features snippets from classic disco tracks such as “This Time Baby“, “Don’t Stop till You Get Enough“, “Dancer“, “Heaven Must Have Sent You“, “Don’t You Want My Love“, “I’ve Got the Next Dance“, “Ain’t Nothing Gonna Keep Me From You“, “The Break“, “Come to Me” and “There But for the Grace of God Go I“—a song by Machine of raw social commentary that provided one of the quintessential disco riffs of all time. This superb dance medley was done the old fashioned way, without digital sampling, and with all the talent that a remixer could muster!
