What a deviously eccentric collection of tracks we have here. Dave Lee aka Joey Negro presses up a collection of tracks old and new and pressed them into vinyl for the latest Attack The Dancefloor EP. I don’t think anyone’s going to be disappointed by what they find.
Leading off with straight fire: Joey Negro remixes Delia Renee’s 1981 Airwave Records “You’re Gonna Want Me Back” and you would be forgiven for thinking he brought a fucking time machine with him. This sounds so good, and for a 2019 release so authentic you’ll want to draw for a drug test. Or me: this is the kind of track that gives you goosebumps when you first hear it and you’ll spend the rest of days trying to find it.
Dr. Packer mixes down Joey Negro (as “Foreal People”) on the 1999 track “Shake” and Grant Nelson reaches even further back for the 1996 Z-Factor smash “Gotta Keep Pushin’.” Joey returns on the modern soulful house “redemption” mix of Canadian duo Four80East’s track with CeCe Peniston. And the order of the tracks is probably how I’d rank them: get this for that Delia Renee joint, stay for Packer and Nelson and CeCe.
