walter gibbons, a true master of the mix, a disco legend, a pioneer of dance music. theres literally very few who can lay claim to progressing the artform of studio mixing and technique than the late gibbons. his contribution to contemporary music cannot be understated, first as a dj where his drum laced experimentation captured the ears and minds of his peers and the dancers, then later as a mixer and studio genius where he continued on his quest. often fixated on the percussion and breaks within records his versions would often dive into spaced out, dubby and stripped back territory that very few of his peers were even contemplating at that time, fervently reconstructing the tracks themselves and often the time, space and dancefloor within which the record was being played. a true original, gibbons was behind many of the definitive versions of the classics, his unique style often catapulting records that were just fine in their original form into brand new colourful, cosmic interpretations that flourished sonically and rhythmically with brand new sounds that bristled with vision.

phillys double exposure have undoubtedly earned the title of disco legends, their music has long been part of the heartbeat with numerous classics under their belts. their mighty release ten per cent was the first commercially issued 12 single and subsequently ushered in the notion of the format as a go to in the clubs and among djs. originally thought of as a fad in a world where the 45 was king, this 12 release unknowingly changed the direction of dance music and music promotions practically overnight. disco history indeed.
