Release Date:02/24/2017;Notes:Double LP version. Joey Negro presents a snapshot of the edgier, robotic sounds of the emerging early '80s electro scene. From stone-cold classics such as Hashim's "Al Naafiysh (The Soul)", Tyrone Brunson's "The Smurf" and Key-Matic's "Breakin' In Space", to revered party anthem's such as Aleem's "Release Yourself (Dub)", Two Sisters' "High Noon (Part 2)" and Dwayne Omarr's "This Party's Jam Packed", to electro-oddities like Paul Hardcastle's "Rain Forest" and The Packman's "I'm The Packman", Electro is a genuine labor of love and a timely reminder of the raw drum machine sounds that were soon to define the beginning of the house and techno scenes. The album features sleeves notes written by early electro pioneer and DJ Greg Wilson who states: "during the early-mid '80s, electro-funk became the dominant force on the UK's black music scene. With the previous era's jazz-funk movement running out of steam the way was clear for this new technological direction to sweep out the old and announce a new wave of dance music with a distinctive futuristic edge." Dave Lee (Joey Negro) may be associated with disco, funk and boogie more than electro, but the truth is, he is a music fan first and foremost. Back in the early '80s, Dave was fanatical about this futuristic new style of dance music called electro. Although at the time this new sound remained very divisive within the soul and jazz-funk scenes, he liked both Lonnie Liston Smith and Man Parrish. As Dave recalls in his own album sleeve notes: "I can see why the soul boys hated electro as it lacked the soaring vocals, intricate orchestration and polished organic production of jazz funk. Unfortunately for the purists by the mid '80s, all dance music had become more electronic with the likes of Roland introducing powerful drum machines and affordable synthesizers, not to mention the onset of early samplers. Many straight-up soul boogie records got electro-fied." This album presents some of Joey Negro's favorites, plus a few lesser-known and collectable cuts.;Track List:1.
