Limited edition double vinyl set in gatefold sleeve, full length DJ friendly mixes & re-edits, compiled by Al Kent. Im always pleasantly surprised by some of the feedback I get when I put out one of these albums. I mean, liking good music isnt exactly rocket science is it?
Judging by some of the records I see changing hands for staggering sums of money though, it's maybe not as easy as it looks. Perhaps seeing past the rarity of a record and actually liking something for its beauty rather than its value is the key. Perhaps being broke is a good position to be in after all. Whatever. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this album isn't about me showing off my "collection" (despite the use of the word "rare" in the title), it's simply my choice of as many good tracks as I can fit on a CD, most of which I hope you'll like as much as I do. That said, there would be no point in filling a CD with tracks that are obvious or particularly easy to find. So rest assured, you've saved a few bob, not to mention the hassle of hiding parcels from your wife when the postman comes, by buying this album instead of the individual songs.
One CD is just straight up music (I've edited a few tracks of course, but that just makes them even more "DJ friendly"). the other is a "continuous disco mix" which basically means it's the same songs without gaps. So you can have a party and just mingle without worrying too much about the music. Assuming your guests like obscure disco music that is. I'm trying to avoid using the term "DJ mix" because it isn't really. I made the mistake of selecting tracks that don't easily blend together, whereas DJs, as we all know, select tracks based on how long and how tightly quantised the drum intro is.
As an added bonus, all vinyl conversion was carried out by Andrew Pirie, Glasgow's answer to David Mancuso, but younger. And taller. With mastering duties by Lynn Petrin of Ebony Cuts. Germany's answer to Herb Powers." - Al Kent, October 2012
Disco Love is a series of fabulous disco records that you have probably never heard of. All superb records presented to you by the legendary Al Kent from the unlikeliest disco haven of Glasgow. Al's been buying records a few years now, usually ignoring the in-demand or more obvious titles and searching a little harder for fabulous disco records that you have probably never heard of. Disco Love 3 contains just some of them.
Not only that, but most of them are exclusive, unissued re-edits, spliced specially for this album by Mr. Kent. And he's mixed them all together for one disc. If you like your disco music deep, soulful and/or funky, then you've come to the right place. It’s worth mentioning that Al Kent only plays old music. To enhance his sets Al spends a crazy amount of time creating spe- cial edits. The likes of Kon (Off Track), Rahaan, Theo Parrish and Dimitri from Paris all want his edits when they hear them.
