Weird Disco Dubs

What are your favourites?

I could list a ton of Kevorkian, Simpson, Pettibone, and Gibbons tracks. All fantastic but what about those hidden, more obscure gems?

The dubbier and weirder the better. A dub that takes a tune to the next level. In fact any genre is fair game, not just disco.

A few faves:

Should Have Known Better

Penultimate Zone

Love Tempo

Set Fire To Me

Always thought this was pretty weird, but fantastic all the same. A sort of mad Italo disco cover version of Free - All Right Now.

Those Omar Santana vibes are unmistakable. The pre-hip hop sound of Hot 97 in nyc. Omar. Aldo Marin. Latin Rascals. A totally unique energy.

Ironically the Larry Levan version of ‘Changes’ is not a patch on the original IMHO. But yes a great album from a massively under-rated group.

Not disco really but weird and fun. Nigerian musicians, recorded in New York and released in England, two tunes with separate dubs which are better than the vocals on the EP.

A bit more on the post-punk side, but adequately wonky and dubbed out
