This is a record, but also a mix, its a mix on a record. Big Apple Productions #1 came out in 1982 and was a bootleg, tightly edited mix of the current dance smashed of the time. It is consistently cited by DJ's of the era as being influential is inspiring a progression in their mixing style, I think its fun, although too fast paced for my liking to be used as a DJ tool albeit for the run of hi nrg breaks toward the end.
Although uncredited the mix was actually put together by 80's New York scene DJ Mikey D'Merola, one of the few DJ's of the time who still actively spins modern and older dance cuts to this day (I havent heard any of his current mixes but I would very much like to if you have any).
Now here is a contest for you, who can spot every one of the tracks played in this mix? Anyone who posts a complete listing will get a special Beat Electric prize. I'll draw the url of the blog onto an american apparel size small ringer t-shirt using a crayon or something, or give up my last and only bottle of LeBaron's limited edition vinyl cleaning solution.
As an added bonus track I'm also putting up the instrumental version of Mr Flagio's Take A Chance, because nobody else has and I'm nice like that.
