DJ Funkshion – Talkin About 5 (Prelude Records, New York, USA)

Prelude Records was a New York-based independent record label that was active from 1976 to 1986. At one time, François Kevorkian held an A&R position at Prelude. The label’s owner was Marvin Schlachter. Prelude was first launched in 1976, renamed from Pye International Records, a US division of UK-based Pye Records which had begun in 1974. The name was derived from the music group Prelude, which recorded for Pye at the time.

As disco music declined, Prelude was one of the few disco labels to survive its demise. In 1981 they pioneered the mastermix. with Shep Pettibone’s “Kiss Mastermix 2×12”. Having recruited Kevorkian, the label was able to focus on remixes; to change up an existing song by altering it slightly.

Lots of Half-Stepping mixing here 😉

Originally a jam band formed in the late 1990s by musicians from other bands in Wellington, Fat Freddy’s Drop gradually became its members’ sole focus.

DJ Funkshion Tributes – Larry Levan

Larry Levan was the first superstar DJ. The first to really convince the world that there was more to DJing than just playing one record after another.

For 10 years from 1977 to 1987, Levan was the star attraction at New York’s legendary Paradise Garage, writing himself into clubbing lore with swashbuckling DJ sets that took in minimal underground disco, funky rock, dub and synth-pop, which foreshadowed the house music revolution.
