Saturday Night Christmas Special

It will be a funky Christmas weekend this year, so enjoy! If the song from Sylvia (Robinson) sounds familiar, it was sampled by Moby on his album ‘18’ in 2002. After her singing career Sylvia (one half of Mickey & Sylvia, known for ‘Love is strange’) became co-founder of Sugar Hill Records, which brought us Sugarhill Gang’s ‘Rapper’s’ Delight’ and many more very cool early hip hop tracks!

Don’t forget to check (and download) my new (explicit) Euro Disco Mix on Podomatic, in association with For Disco Play Only. It’s available on iTunes as well. Have yourself a merry Christmas!
