Defected Presents - House Masters - Joey NegroDefected
It's a bit of a surprise that this is the first go round for Joey Negro to sit in the House Masters chair but he and Defected records feel like a perfect match. Negro has solidified his status as one of the premiere DJs of the last twenty years and his remixes and production credits are too numerous to list here. For Defected records he has assembled a superb collection of some of his favorite Disco classics, deep house gems and some tasty boogie tunes. For starters, if you've never heard of his remix of Patrice Rushen's "Haven't You Heard" you'll will not want to miss out on this Disco hit. "Ride The Storm" is a certified Club banger from Akabu (One of Negro's many aliases) featuring Disco Diva Linda Clifford. The Sunburst Band, Joey's boogie band is also featured here with several tracks. "The Secret Life of Us" and Garden of Love" stand out as favorites. Can't leave out the deep house dishes and there are plenty. "Can't Get High Without U" featuring Taka Boom is simply wicked and Raven Maize's timeless classic "Forever Together" will stir up memories of late night club parties that lasted until the break of day. If this doesn't spark you to purchase then check your pulse If all is well then quickly add this to your collection.
