Dimitri from Paris has spun my world right round over the last decade, taking on everything from the classic Playboy lifestyle (in 2000's A Night At The Playboy Mansion and the 2008 sequel, Return To the Playboy Mansion) and Franglais culture (2001's swanky Sacribleu) on his retro-inspired remix albums. But I'm super excited about his latest venture, a double disc set paying tribute to Philadelphia-made soul, Get Down With The Philly Sound, where he documents the birth of disco in the City of Brotherly Love.
The first disc includes the best of the original classics as selected by the maestro, including Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes' "Bad Luck" part 1 and 2, The Jacksons' "Living Together" and a few by the late Teddy Pendergrass, "You Can't Hide From Yourself" and "The More I Get The More I Want."
But it's the second disc of his own remixes and edits of the tracks that has me extra, extra jazzed. Wanna hear a snippet? The DJ has offered Us an exclusive first listen to his edit of "Bad Luck" off the collection. Click above to check it out and get the whole disc at your local record store now or visit his Web site!
