Another hot post for today, another hot release by "DF Edits", which is an offshoot of "EBO Records". This time our hero Dimitri comes from "Loisada", so before I started this review, I had to satisfy my hunger for knowledge to see where or what "Loisada" is (have never heard of this place, despite the fact that I am very good in Geography).
I took the Wiki help to find out that "Loisaida is a term derived from the Latino pronunciation of 'Lower East Side', a neighborhood in Manhattan, New York City. The term was originally coined by poet / activist Bittman Rivas in his 1974 poem Loisaida". Also this Manhattan street hosts the homonymous "Loisaida Festival", which has been celebrated since 1987 on the Sunday before Memorial Day. This Latino celebration is the largest ethnic pride festival in Lower Manhattan and grows annually in impact, attracting 15,000 people each year.
Back to the vinyl now, which is gonna be out on account of the "Record Store Day" on April 19th. "Dimitri From Loisada" edits skillfully "The Ghetto" of "Donny Hathaway" on side "A", which was originally released on "ATCO Records" back in 1970 as a 7'' vinyl, but if you are looking for the extended version, then unavoidably your unique option is to get the LP "Live", as released in 1972 or one of the unofficial releases that followed. On the flip we have a dj-friendly remix by Dimitri on "Los Conquistadores Chocolates" by "Johnny Hammond", working on the "Classic NYC 12'' Mix". Excellent!
A big honor to label honcho "Jean Claude Gavri", as only limited records from every music style are included o this "RSD" catalogue. You can pre-order you copy from the Belgian "K-Records" store. This special record will be out only for 300 copies, pressed on electric blue wax. Beautiful!
*** Special thanks to Jean Claude Gavri for the promo!
Take a shot!
