zafmusic - Private Wax - Super Rare Boogie and DiscoBBE
Zaf is a music aficionado, avid collector and former owner of Reckless Records in New York City. He has been compiling disco and boogie tunes for over forty years and he has dug into his vault to share a sampling of his rare grooves as the title would suggest. While every track here doesn’t qualify as a gem there are a few delights that will grab your attention. Prime cuts include “Sweet Maryline” by Christian Gaubert. “Music Freak” by Contagious is a proper funk tune with a wicked groove. “Fly with Me” by Yohon is a Disco treat with strings inspired by the Salsoul sound that will certainly move you. Thanks to Zaf and countless other DJs the sound of the boogie is alive and well and “Private Wax” is a good source to get your groove on.
