DJ History reveal Secret Weapons
The professional chin strokers over at DJ History have called on the likes of Prins Thomas, Luke Soloman and Running Back chief Gerd Janson (pictured) to select their secret weapons for a new compilation due for release in October.
The compilation serves to harvest the obscure gems that adorn many a discerning DJ set and make them available for a wider audience.
DJ History head honchos Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton, who co-authored the NY Time bestselling dance music opus Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, have gone on to release a host of other books that chart the evolution of dance music.
The tracklisting, which you can read below, reveals the tracks as well as who chose them, and already has Juno Plus sniffing excitedly around the cheeky house gems from Mr Gone, Red Hook Dreams and Derrick Carter’s Sound Patrol Orchestra.
The Secret Weapons compilation will be released on October 4 via the DJ History label.
