the best disco in town

o amor dói / love hurts

Fui gravar um programa com o mestre Tony Hits na Rádio UOL e me dei conta de que andava muito indolente, sem mostrar muita coisa. Então decidi gravar um set com algumas melodias (termo dos bailes aqui de São Paulo) na linha soul-funk-disco, dentro da proposta de misturar sucessos improváveis e obscuridades radiantes. // I’ve just recorded a radio show with one of Brasil’s pioneer DJs – Tony Hits – and realized I was reckless in publishing my music sets. So I decided to record on with some slow soul-funk-disco songs (some are not that slow, you’ll hear when it gets going) mixing odd hits and shining obscurities.

O set contém algumas de minhas faixas favoritas de todos os tempos, como “Free” da Deniece Williams, “Taste of Bitter Love” da Gladys Knight e “Our Day Will Come” do Isaac Hayes. Sem esquecer de mencionar grandes momentos como a percussão hipnótica no fim de “I Want Your Love” do James Mason (que linha de baixo!), a raríssima e embasbacante “Love is a Hurting Thing” da Gloria Ann Taylor (talvez só 200 EPs prensados, a maioria vendida no porta-malas do produtor na Califórnia) e a seção instrumental no fim de “All I’ve Got” da Astrud Gilberto.
