darauf kann man sich verlassen: wo joey negro draufsteht, ist tanzmusik drin. seit der 13-jährige david russell lee 1977 in einer tv sendung den song boogie nights von heatwave hörte, ist er vom disco-virus infiziert. und den ist er bis heute nicht mehr losgeworden. obwohl produced with love erst sein zweites eigenständiges album nach universe of love von 1993 ist, hat joey negro in den vergangenen dekaden mächtige spuren im dance-bereich hinterlassen. nicht nur produzierte er zahlreiche chartbreaker, dancefloor-kracher und remixe unter diversen pseudonymen (jakatta, raven maize, doug willis, prospect park u.v.a.m.), vor allem war er für grace jones, diana ross, deep dish, lionel richie, mariah carey, tears for fears, ultra nate, masters at work, roy ayers, blaze und roger sanchez aktiv. hinzu kommen kollaborationswerke, bandprojekte und eine reihe herausragender kompilationen wie die house masters-serie, remixed with love, disco not disco oder kings of house. kurz: ob mainstream oder underground, joey negro ist ein mann der superlative, bei dem einfach jeder beat, jedes hook und jeder loop perfekt sitzt.
