Various - Deep Down & Discofied

Complied by Simon Dunmore of record label, Defected, Deep Down & Discofied is a trainspotter's trawl through (mainly) 70s and 80s “black” music, with an emphasis on the influential; a good number of tracks here have been re-worked or sampled by today‘s dance artists.

It makes for fairly varied listening, taking in everything from infectious soul (such as Maxine Singleton’s Don’t You Love It) and hip-hop (such as Gangstarr’s Jazz Thing) to Bunny Mack’s afrobeat-styled Let Me Love You and Eddie Russ’ jazzy instrumental, Zaius. There’s even a successful cover of Talking Heads’ Slippery People and a couple of "new" tracks, Martin Solveig’s funky I’m A Good Man being the best.

Although these two discs will be appreciated most by fans of the genres covered, any open-minded listener should discover something to their liking.
