  • BBE Records will release The Boogie Back - Post Disco Club Jams, compiled by DJ Spinna, on November 24. In the crate-digging spirit of previous BBE compilations, The Boogie Back looks at the Boogie dance music of the early '80s, a time when funk, disco and R&B were all being mashed together via artists like Kurtis Blow and Mtume. A child of the '70s, New York native DJ Spinna, AKA Vincent Williams, grew up in the heyday of boogie, and has compiled this collection of classics and rarities. Disc 1 of the double CD set features 16 tracks mixed by Williams, including two of his own re-edits: an exclusive remix of Jan Leslie Holmes' "I'm Your Superman," and his ReFREAK edit of Community People's "Education Wrap." Meanwhile, the second disc features 12 DJ-friendly full-length unmixed tracks. Tracklist CD 01 - Mixed by DJ Spinna 01. South Bronx - The Bottom Line 02. Foxy - Tena's Song 03.
