For the June Discovery party, the kiddos have teamed up with BBE Records to do an early and special listening/release party for Dimitri From Paris' new disco compilation, Get Down With The Philly Sound. The 2 CD set documents the birth of disco in Philadelphia and the work of the unsung musicians who played on the numerous hits that came from the scene, including: Harold Melvin & Blue Notes, Teddy Pendergrass, The Trammps, and The Jackson 5.
After the release party, Discovery will go into full gear with Codebreaker straight from Milwaukee. The midwestern disco producers known more for letting their bass guitar do the driving and less for their handclapping have decided to let the synths take over this time. Get ready for a heavy dreamy disco night!
