Joey Negro 90s House & Garage Vol. 2 Compiled by Joey Negro & Neil Pierce Z Records CD | LP Pre-Order
Remixed With Love by Joey Negro - Winter 2019 Sampler Joey Negro In 1978 Patrick Adams and Leroy Burgess released one of the all time classic underground disco albums under the alias Phreek. Joey Negro takes 2 songs from the album and using the original 24 track mastertape gives them both much extended and reworked versions. “Big Phreek” was a crazy, off kilter uptempo jam that was popular in Chicago at clubs like the Warehouse, with its chanting vocals and odd octave bassline under Adams' trademark soloing synth-work. JN strips things back a fair deal to make a very playable energetic leftfield disco cut. “Good Thing” is more soulful disco featuring plenty of previously unheard Burgess vocals and rich strings that weren’t on the original release. This new JN version clocks in at almost 13 mins Z Records 12"
Joey Negro Attack The Dancefloor Vol.14 Z Records unstoppable ‘Attack The Dancefloor’ series powers it’s way to its 14th Volume of remixed disco gold. Delia Renee - You're Gonna Want Me Back (Joey Negro Disco Blend): "You’re Gonna Want Me Back” was an all but forgotten early 80s obscurity only known to hardcore vinyl collectors. Joey Negro has got hold of the original multi and has transformed what was already a very strong song into an end of the night anthem. Delia’s vocals are classic power soulful vocal disco diva, whilst JN makes the most of the parts in the fully orchestrated live backing track. Foreal People - Shake (Dr Packer Re-Shake): Originally released in 1999 the Joey Negro revamp of GQ’s Chic like “Shake” features David Grant from Brit Funk act Linx on lead vocals. It's back out 20 years later with a fat funky Dr Packer remix, who drops down the bpm and adds a more dubby approach to the arrangement. Z Factor - Gotta Keep Pushin (Grant Nelson Remix): A classic from the ZR back catalogue gets a brand new makeover from Grant Nelson, making it an instant dancefloor hit. Four80East & CeCe Peniston - Are You Ready (Joey Negro Redemption Mix): Brand new gospel tinged soulful house originally produced in Toronto by live jazz funk act Four 80 East featuring the powerhouse vocals of Ce Ce Peniston. It has now been remixed by Joey Negro for release on ZR.

Another indispensable ATDF 12", destined to cause waves across dancefloors worldwide. Z Records 12"

Disco not Disco Joey Negro Please note: this is NOT the RSD edition. “Strut Records were there first, well before DFA recorded The Rapture’s Sub Pop debut. ‘Disco Not Disco’ preceded the punk funk revolution by two years.” Resident Advisor Strut present a new repress of the influential first volume of ‘Disco Not Disco’ compiled by Joey Negro and Sean P as part of the label’s 20th Anniversary. ‘Disco Not Disco’ was a perfectly timed compilation back in 2000. Released when interest in the myths, history and playlists of original New York clubs like Paradise Garage and The Loft was at its peak, the album drew on the outer limits of leftfield disco championed by Levan and Mancuso, bringing together unlikely dancefloor anthems by rock acts like Yoko Ono and Ian Dury, obscurities from cottage labels like BC and Splash and selected oddities from the unique mind of avant-garde hero, Arthur Russell. It was essentially a celebration of the sonic melting pot in New York during the early ‘80s, an era when punk had burnt itself out and disco had become commercial and saccharine; in its place, the post-punk movement threw up brilliant oddities which tore up the accepted rulebook. Since its release, the compilation title has become a by-word for a whole genre of music and remains a landmark collection of its time. With original copies now changing hands for €100+, this new pressing is a welcome return for an essential celebration of disco’s difficult cousins. The album features full original artwork and Kris Needs’ sleeve notes and is remastered and cut by The Carvery. Strut CD | LP

Joey Negro Backstreet Brit Funk Vol. 1 Backstreet Brit Funk Vol.1 is being reissued for the first time since it’s original release in 2010 plus this will be the first ever release on vinyl for this highly regarded collection. A collection of rare and very sought-after underground British disco, funk and soul tracks avoiding the obvious hits that have been on a million cd’s already. Many of these tracks never went beyond a very small local release but have since become very collectable - buying this lot would set you back somewhere in the four figures. Both Vol.1 (2010) and Vol.2 (2018) of the Brit Funk albums tell the story of the underground scene from the late 70’s through to the mid-80’s in the UK when punk and disco were giving way to a new blend of jazz, soul and funk, heavily influenced by the American big hitters of the day but re-worked by the UK pioneers for the British dance floors. Both volumes contain a unique selection of high quality music, which will have a shelf life lasting well beyond the currents trends and fads. All tracks have been Cedared and re-mastered to a very high standard and now sound better than ever before. Joey Negro re-edited some of the tracks for the original album, updating them with a fresh new approach. The 2CD which has been out of press for months has also been reissued to coincide with the LP release. Z Records LP Out of Stock
