Test Pressing

011 / Joey Negro / Part One

Dave Lee a.k.a Joey Negro a.k.a Raven Maize a.k.a Akabu a.k.a The Sunburst Band a.k.a Doug Willis a.k.a Z Factor a.k.a Sessomato is a leg-end. In his own front room at least. Dave started Republic Records, released great compilations and wonderful twelves, closed Republic, started Z Records and did it all over again. He has safely kept the flame alive for true disco for nearly 25 years and is probably one of the only UK disco producers featured on Desert Island Discs on Radio 4 (as picked by that poisoning chef Heston Blumenthal). I asked David for a mix for Test Pressing and he gave me a cast off that he already has on a player on his site (worth a look) but as it’s Dave the quality is top drawer. Second part to follow soon. Respect is due.
