An obscure gem from Washington DC, Hang With The Gang is a prime slab of boogie/funk from 1981. A background party track, vocoder stabs, and genre defining moog bassline might very well make this the ultimate party jam. The Backlash EP (Pictured) and the Hang With The Gang 12" were the only releases on the private Strata Sphere label making this a very rare cut indeed. A reissue is in order sometime in the next year or so, but until then expect to pay a lot of coin for this heavily sweated and near perfect underground boogie workout. For more tracks with a party going on in the background, check LeBaron's recent post Party Disco.
