DJ Spinna - DJ Spinna vs P and P recordsFivedayweekend
During the mid to late seventies, Peter Brown and Patrick Adams wrote and produced a number of future disco classics for their own label P&P records that would stand the test of time for DJ’s and record aficionados alike. With the help of DJ Spinna, we get re-introduced to these quality recordings all over again. When I think of P&P I think of Cloud One, probably their most successful group on the P&P roster and fittingly there are three tasty tracks from them. The atmospheric “Dust to Dust” kicks off the disc and “Don’t Let My Rainbow Pass Me By” is another floor burner. Other notable cuts are “Ain’t It Time” from Queen Yahna, a string laden disco tune that could fit into the Salsoul catalogue. Eddie Owens gritty funk n soul track is bursting with a fierce brass section and serves as a nice diversion from the collection of disco and boogie tunes. This is just a sampling of the P&P catalogue but one that is definitely worth checking out.
