Schlock-Wire: MDD Unearths A Cache Of Vintage Disco With PAJ DISCO MIX
Here’s some big news for vintage disco-mix aficionados: Million Dollar Disco, one of the coolest disco reissue labels, has just released a compilation of disco edits by PAJ, a trio of d.j.’s whose work was very popular in their native Canada (their medley-oriented work was also a big influence on the people behind the highly successful Stars On 45 medley series). This compilation is the first in a two-part series and is jam-packed with rarities taken from the original acetate and tape sources. Read on for all the beat-splicing details…
PAJ DISCO MIX: vintage 1970’s edits and mixes, pt. 1
Limited edition CD!
PAJ Disco Mix, a Canadian trio of DJs, produced all of these edits between 1975-1978. Some made it onto acetates, cut at New York’s Sunshine Sounds Studios and were distributed through David Mancuso’s New York Record Pool. Some got no further than reel to reel tape (some were even only originally recorded on cassette!). But they all got club play thanks to PAJ Disco Mix’s relationship with Canada’s top DJ of the time, The Limelight’s Robert Ouimet.
This is a very special project that Million Dollar Disco are proud to present as our tenth CD release.
