Killer double-disc compilation of some of the finest and rarest mixes by legendary NYC producer Walter Gibbons remixes on Strut!

Walter Gibbons remains one of the most important and unheralded DJ / remixers in New York dance music history for his pioneering remix methods. Famed residency at Galaxy 21 (alongside a then young percussionist, Francois Kevorkian), he became the first to make his own reel to reel edits of tracks, extending breaks and restructuring tracks specifically for the dancefloor.

Gibbons would become a prolific remixer for Salsoul and developed a style his contemporaries called ‘Jungle Music’, a raw, uncompromising approach to DJ-ing and mixing which often extended tracks to 10 minutes plus with tribal percussion breaks and off-the-cuff, unexpected production touches. 

This compilation focuses on some of the more adventurous and ground-breaking mixes that Gibbons produced during the 70s and early 80s disco era including a freeform treatment of Dinosaur L’s ‘Go Bang’, Paradise Garage favourite ‘You Are My Love’ by Sandy Mercer and underground disco rarity, ‘I’ve Been Searching’ by Arts & Craft. One of his recognised classics, ‘Set It Off’ by Strafe, fused electro, disco and New York post-punk in a genius re-work, later reprised on the proto-house version he recorded as Harlequin Fours with a young Barbara Tucker on vocals. Highly Recommended!
