A Double Dose Of Disco Glory

I can't believe it took me this long to post this record... Definitely an all time favorite and an unforgettable California acid house classic. It was on Doc Martin's Unlock Your Mind mix which may the best house mix ever commercially released.

DJ Garth & E.T.I. - Twenty Minutes Of Disco Glory (The Acid Rock Mix) [Wicked-1996]

Here's the dope-ass DJ Harvey mix from a 2002 re-release.

A Double Dose Of Braxton Holmes

I don't know a ton about Mr. Braxton Holmes other than I really like every record I have by him and his remix of Cheek's Sunshine People is timeless.

Braxton Holmes & Mark Grant - Psychotic Pimpin' [Cajual - 1997]
This track from The Revival EP, which is amazing in it's entirety, is funky as funk gets... I'd been looking for it forever and finally found it in the classics bin at Tweekin' when I was in SF last summer.

Cabrini-Greens & Cornbread - Why You Tryin' To Hustle Me?[Cajual - 1997]
This one, co-produced by Dewey B. is from the Cabrini Greens & Cornbread EP. Also great and well worth owning. I can't help but feel groovy every time I hear this shit... I was really excited to find it in a box of records I recently took out of my storage space. It was full of all my mid-90's Chicago tracks so expect lots more of that coming soon.

FFRR - 1993

Since I haven't posted a track in a minute, I figured I'd post a really long one (pause), standing proud at 11 minutes and 20 seconds.
I forget the name name of the rave I first heard this at... something like Magic Wonderland, all I remember was that it had a Disney related name. The party wasn't that great, but I remember hearing a lot of crazy tracks for the first time that night. Jesse Brooks played this particular one and I remember talking to my bro Toby about how fucking cool I thought it was. I saw that the record had an FFRR sleeve. The next day I was at a record store with Donson (who just made an incredible mix you need to check out) and I grabbed this very record off the wall. "I know that track," he said "it's not the one you're looking for." Liar. I went ahead and placed it back on the shelf. I spent the next few years listening to every FFRR record I ever came across and boy do they ever have a massive catalog of crap. Anyways... when Amoeba first opened it was up on the wall and I just knew it had to be it. Sure enough, 'twas. Now get your trance breaks on!
