Krivit compiles new edits comp
The album – a follow up to the first instalment of edits released in 2003 – will contain a mixture of new, rare and classic re-works which touch on Krivit’s treasured sounds of soulful disco, funk and jazz. With a record collection that easily surpasses 50,000, we can expect a thoroughly fascinating collection of tunes.
Krivit was one of the pioneers of the underground disco scene in 1970s and 80s New York, earning his stripes as a hip-hop DJ before holding down residencies at such esteemed nightspots as Area, Danceteria and Save The Robots. In more recent times his Body & Soul parties with Francois Kevorkian and Joe Claussell have kept the Big Apple dancing to the sound of the Krivit beat.
Tracks include a bunch of rarities including Krivit’s previously unreleased re-work of Black Blood’s Afro-rock gem “Chicano”, the revival of a soulful Patrice Rushen sleeper, “Music Of The Earth” and an extended workout on the Chairmen Of The Board’s psychedelic soul classic, “Life & Death”.
