The two-disc set features versions of Vicky D, Leroy Burgess and more, along with new Vega originals.
The idea came about after the Masters At Work member convinced Nervous Records boss Michael Weiss—whose father Sam founded disco label Sam Records in the '70s—to send him the old Sam Records 24-inch multi-tracks. Vega went through the archives and was inspired to make his own remixes using the multi-track tapes.
In the end, he compiled NYC Disco, a two-disc set. The first disc features Louie Vega remixes of classic Sam Records tracks like Vicky D's "This Beat Is Mine" and Gary's Gang's "Keep On Dancing." There are also remixes of non-Sam Records tracks—such as Sylvester's "Dance (Disco Heat)" and Luther Vandross' "Get Myself Together"—plus a handful of new originals by Vega himself, including a collaboration with The Martinez Brothers. The second disc is made up of Louie Vega edits of other Sam Records releases, an "interpretation" of Leroy Burgess & Convertion's "Let's Do It" and a handful of Sam Records originals that have been newly remastered.
The compilation will come out on June 29th via Nervous Records. Vega, as one half of Masters At Work and several other projects under other names, was a foundational artist on Nervous, which took control of the Sam Records catalogue in the mid-'90s.
