get down with the philly sound

i’ve really been feeling an older sort of sound lately. there’s only so far electro can take you right now, so along with new albums from unkle, lcd soundsystem and holy f*ck, i’ve really been digging this compilation put together by dimitri from paris. it brings together some great disco-before-disco tracks, a load of gorgeous teddy pendergrass (rip) songs, both solo and with harold melvin and the blue notes, and then, on disc two, dimitri goes one better and puts his own stamp on them all. my own personal favourite is his rework of the trammps’ the night the lights went out. see more snippets on his soundclouds, and check out the wicked videos on the album’s site.

along similar lines then, i was delighted to find this boot in my inbox from the good people of solid bump. white girl lust went and put together an edit of prince’s wanna be your lover for sxsw, and now they’ve shared it with the rest of the world. go forth and multiply.
