2010 archive collection of edits by New York remix innovator Walter Gibbons, one of the most important and unheralded DJ/remixers in New York Dance music history. Gibons was a pioneer of reel to reel edits and the art of the remix and a tangible link between early Hip Hop and Disco through his quickfire turntable skills developed during the mid-'70s. At his famed residency at Galaxy 21 (alongside a then young percussionist, Francois Kevorkian), Gibbons perfected his turntable prowess, mixing two copies of records seamlessly at a similar time to Kool Herc's famed block parties across town in the Bronx in 1975. Walter Gibbons found religion and had stopped producing by 1986, although he continued to DJ with a much heavier slant towards gospel. He died of AIDS-related illness in 1994.
