I honestly don’t know much about Michela Cini AKA “Cini_got_Soul”. There is something exhilarating about finding a great DJ or Band you’ve never heard of who delivers serious heat. Well in this case it is infectious disco funk in the sonic odyssey from the Disco-Roller Blade era.
The mix features funk from all over the country. For example it includes Dexter Wansel who played an integral role in “Philly Sound” or “Sweet Philly” sound in the 70s (Philly Soul) music. Then moving to the sounds of the West coast it includes Sylvester, a soulful disco singer based out of the counterculture and drag scene of San Francisco, California during the 70s in a variety of acts including Sylvester and his Hot Band. One nice gem is the inclusion of Salsoul Orchestra, a house backing band out of NYC for Salsoul Records. Other acts in the mix include Panache, El CoCo, Raw Silk, Direct Current, O’Jays, Crown Heights Affair, and more.
Sure it is Wednesday, but don’t sit around all week and wait for the weekend. Get off your ass and jam, treat yourself to the Disco Mellow mix.
