Take it away Klayston...

""When Mr Devlin got at me about posting this mix up I was a bit surprised and amused that he and a few others were really feeling it. Back when I was still living in San Antonio (hometown baby baby!) I was apart of a collective known as the Diggin Deep Quartet. It started with JJ Lopez playing northern soul, modern soul, and heavy funk in the basement of a swanky bar downtown. He being a mentor of mine years back, I always had respect for him and his musical selections. His tastes started to mature a bit and started moving into more of a disco sound, as did mine. We both had a large background in House music and culture, so the step was a logical one to take. Soon after, we discovered a slower, deeper sound that the english like to call boogie. The sound was derived from a disco backlash, hip hop, r&b and other new experiments in musical instrumentation. I have been inspired by New Yorks melting pot of cultures since I could remember, and this was no different. The time period I constantly look on the back of records range from 79-84, those are my years. If any of those years are on there with some bad looking cover, chances are you got some serious heat. I mean it makes sense, I was born in 83. The year hip hop went from being disco to "hip hop", the Misfits broke up, and Thriller became the best selling record of all time. You do the math. Oh wait, this had nothing to do with the mix... we made this in the basement of said swanky bar, Davenport (RIP), all live, all vinyl."
