Best known to most people for his early work as a Portishead collaborator and International tour DJ, Andy Smith earned his ‘Legendary’ title among crate diggers in 1998 when he released seminal mix album ‘The Document’. In the years since, Andy has continued to live up to his reputation as one of the finest and most creative DJs on the planet, tirelessly digging in the crates and emerging with pure gold. Following in the footsteps of his 2006 exploration of Trojan’s mighty reggae vaults and his two compilations exploring funk music from New Orleans and Jamaica, Andy turns his attention to disco and boogie for the very first time.
The master is back, showing the newbies how it's done...With a wealth of diggin' and DJ'ing experience but without the ego that goes with it, Andy has always been really open (and open-minded) about sharing his knowledge and his absolute LOVE of music in general through DJ sets, radio-sessions and compilations but has tended to side-step musical fashions and trends and simply continued to take us on his magical musical journey. His choices on this comp of DISCO and BOOGIE (including finally the U.K. banger from the Disco Dub Band), as ever, are truly impeccable so this comes highly recommended.
