After getting knee deep and quite dirty in the rather daunting 12″ section at The Record Exchange, I came up with this power-poppy, post-disco cut from Indeep called “The Record Keeps Spinning.” Mixing early hip-hop lyrical structures with disco and electro sounds and rhythms, this track plays like a mash-up of early 1980′s dance music, while thankfully avoiding the associated cliches (except for that unfortunate sax break, cut that shit out and it’s nearly perfect.) The real money section of this track comes about a minute in, when the sparse instrumental fills out with a rolling, robot dance-worthy synth that brings up the intensity by paralleling the double time tempo in the already electric vocals. Thanks to the magic of pitch adjust, I’ve satisfied the speed demon inside me and brought this track’s speed up a good deal (10%), so be sure to check out the original version and see which one you like better.
Also, let’s see what kinda vinyl nuggets (of any genre) you guys have been digging up around town recently. Post links, locations, or your best tips on crate spelunking in the Lou.
