Everybody Get Up – Ren Woods This is a very special record for me, and an anthem at my motown party at club djoon. The musicians and producers are legends, James Jamerson Jr son of James Jamerson original funk brother is the bass player. I was at A1 diggin’ with my friend and mentor Danny Krivit, he picked the LP for me telling me I would love it… Do I do?
Louie Vega – Dance For me this track is the best record of the year. Louie is the artist that brought me to house music. He is a massive influence. I know a lot of us will play this one. I think the soulful vibe is going through a hard time, and Louie is bringing back hope, love soul quality and passion on the floor. It’s vibe, it’s production, it’s energy is everything I love about house.
Micheal Jackson – Burn this Disco Out – The Reflex Revision Re touching a massive club banger as this one is not an easy thing to do… Nicolas did this perfectly. This is the ultimate version. It’s the GAMM 100, and this is the label I picked to release my own work because Mad Mats never goes wrong when he approves a gem. Actually I edited the remix a little bit for my own use, you’ll hear it on the floor.
Thelma Houston – I’m Here Again (Danny Krivit Edit) One of my all time favorite song, favorite singer, favorite label, favorite DJ. It’s always a highlight. Danny focused on the most energetic parts of this timeless classic, it keeps you high all the way.
Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes – Don’t Leave Me This Way This record is epic. Motown huge classic but Philly version is even more crazy. Teddy pendergrass voice is one of a kind. Seeing all hands in the air and feeling the vibe coming from the floor when this record is playing is one of the best things ever!
Merry Clayton – Emotions (Reverend P Edit) This is exactly the kind of record that does not need much to be a floor filler. My work was to keep it true to the original feel. It is released on GAMM. Feel good, splendid music, great lyrics, amazing voice. I hope I get a chance to play it at suncebeat.
Salsoul Orchestra – It’s good for the Soul (Reverend P Edit) This record needs a great crowd… It is so very beautiful. The strings are uplifting. Suncebeat is the perfect place to drop it! It’s gonna get a vinyl realease on forthcoming downtown304 edit label.
The Trammps– Love Epidemic In this world of madness, love and understanding is the most important thing we need. I love to play records with a joyful message and a togetherness feel. I dream Love is coming from the floor and spreading within ourself all over the world. Let’s spread this love epidemic!
Eddy Kendricks – Ain’t No Smoke Without Fire Underrated dancefloor classic here. It is part of the compilations I release on Sony-Legacy 3 volumes, 30 track I selected on each one. I picked the best music I could ever dream to get on a compilation. It is a real must have, and it is bargain! Check it out, Legacy of soul funk and disco selected by DJ Reverend P exclusive release on iTunes. Collector vinyl release with my edits and CDs coming for Christmas 2015.
Vince Montana Jr – The African Track (Louie Benedetti Remix) This is a classic for me, it’s the perfect track to blend disco into house music without loosing nor the vibe nor the energy and get the dancers in a trance. Percussion madness.
