this amazing 80 minutes mix of finest disco (yes, actual disco!) by erol alkan just showed up on our radar, coming straight from the source and once again proves that he is one of the best dj's alive. this is what the master himself has to say about 'disco 3000':
"i've put together a 80 minute mix of some disco vibes which are lighting up my stratosphere. i began mixing it up just for my own selfish ipod needs during a day off i had at christmas and only recently got round to finishing due to album commitments. most of the tracks are re-edited in some form or over, and i splashed some moody synth drizzle over some of the beats. i got another hour of this mix sitting about, dunno, i maybe save it for another edition. would love to play club sets more like this, who knows, maybe i will... anyone wanna do a party?".
and i hear you, i would love to have some actual disco parties and i hear that from a lot of others too but for some reason no one gets the fuck up and just does it. maybe i should get busy on that right now. whatever, get the mix right now, as it is the best disco mix you will be able to grab until erol alkan decides to finish the next edition. and there is no tracklist as he wants to 'keep it old school and let the beauty of discovery triumph over convenience'. way to go. disco just wouldn't feel the same if it wasn't such hard work to dig for the diamonds.
