Every once in a while I get an email from Chicago label Loose Squares with a link to new juke & footwork dance music that I would never in a million years have found on my own. It’s fun, because no one else sends me music in that genre. Calculon even landed on my best tracks of 2013 thanks to one of those links. So, I was happy to see that Loose Squares founder Chrissy Murderbot announced a new project called Year Of Edits.
Every week a new re-edit of a disco song will be released on his website, free for everyone to listen. He’s already posted the first two, and they’re both well worth the time (six minutes each). I wish more people made disco music-as bad a rap as it gets sometimes, if you like to dance you can’t do much better than Donna Summer or the Bee Gees. Thanks to Chrissy for this new endeavor. I hope he has as much fun making these edits as we have listening.
Go check out the first two edits here.
