Louie's set starts with a light disco track by Dr Buzzard. Not really my cup of tea, but this track gets very interesting towards the end and is mixed into the smooth "Standing Right Here". Both are very relaxing disco songs. Vega brings the tempo up a bit with "Stand On The Word", a track that clearly was an inspiration to the MAW sound. The track that follows is a real classic... "Going Back To My Roots" is pure bliss and it was even included in Danny Krivit's Grass Roots! Things turn slightly jazzy with D'Angelo's "Spanish Joint". Very smooth track. A funkier song comes up next, "Atmosphere Strut", also appeared in Tenaglia's Choice. "Don't Go Away" is another winner here, with sweet female vocals, which is mixed with the excellent "Melting Pot". It is evident that the mix has progressed to become a lot better towards the end. Whoever is familiar with MAW's work (Louie Vega and Kenny Gonzalez), have great respect for songs such as "You Can Do It (Baby)" featuring the jazz guitar master George Benson. 4 stars
The second disc is slightly better in my opinion and more dancefloor-oriented. I first heard "Bostich" in Disco (Not Disco) 2 by Joey Negro and Sean P, and I was instantly impressed by its vibe. The vocals are very nice, catchy and... fast.Read more ›
Disc 2 is definitely hotter, and if you listen closely, the tracks speak to each other lyrically.
Sick Mr. Vega, sick!
