  • Z Records is set to release 20 Years of Joey Negro, a three-disc compilation looking back on the prolific UK producer's career to date. The collection marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Dave Lee's first 12-inch under his Joey Negro guise: Do It, Believe It on famed New York house imprint Nu Groove. The compilation will be released through Lee's own Z Records, although mixing responsibilities have been handed to his long term friends Grant Nelson and DJ Spinna, who take care of a disc each. On CD1 Nelson tackles Lee's house output under his vast array of aliases: Akabu, Sessomatto, Doug Willis, Jakatta and Raven Maize material is mixed-up alongside a clutch of Joey Negro tracks and remixes. DJ Spinna meanwhile, shines a light on Lee's work in seven-piece live act The Sunburst Band, which also includes remixes of the group from Dennis Ferrer, Idjut Boys and Henrik Schwarz. And rounding out the collection, CD3 serves as a bonus disc offering exclusive edits, remixes and productions. If you're unsure as to what to expect sound-wise, allow us to point you in the direction of our recent Playing Favourites feature with Lee, in which RA's Finn Johannsen drew upon tracks from Blaze, Esther Williams and Doobie Brothers. Lee has built his career upon a deep-seated love of disco and classic house sounds, which was certainly in plain view during their conversation. Tracklist CD 1 – Joey Negro Mixed by Grant Nelson 01.
