Like legendary treasure-hunters, Kon and Amir have spent the past twenty-five years excavating record bins and finding gems to pierce ears with. Fortunately, everyone gets to share in the riches of their labour with this much needed reissue of the first in the ‘Off Track’ Series that was originally released in 2007. Kicking off in The Bronx, this triple wax set ensures long forgotten musicians are now getting their proper dues and appreciative audiences are being turned on to some amazing music.
Like two sides of a coin, with the flick of a wrist we are taken from Kon’s disco boogie funk selections through to Amir’s more jazzy Latin and Brazilian vibed choices, making sure there are more than enough new treats whatever your persuasion is.
The Off Track series builds on the successes of the duos highly respected ‘On Track’ series. Unlike the ‘On Track’ series, which featured short snippets of samples and breaks, the Off Track series features full versions of some the best and rarest audible gems in their entirety.
