We Know How To Boogie’ is a joyful romp through the finest forgotten dance-floor disco and soul from the 70’s and 80’s. Compiled by Italian brothers Gino and Federico Grasso. Bona fide ‘disco dons’, collecting music for over 30 years and supplying the likes Dimitri From Paris, Sadar Bahar and Volcov with obscure gems. Gino is a familiar face behind the decks in his hometown of Bologna and across Italy, while Federico’s DJing outings are more occasional. Music, passion and knowledge has seen Gino play underground clubs the world over, including Le Souk in NYC and the Bussey Building and Brilliant Corners in London.
Many of the tracks included on ‘We Know How To Boogie’ have become ‘signature tunes’ for DJs such as Phil Asher, Sadar Bahar, Joe Davis, Ltj X-perience and Daniele Baldelli, rarely if ever leaving their record boxes. Containing several exclusive edits from G&D, ‘We Know How To Boogie’ is simply filled with sure-fire hits for the discerning dance-floor. Lesser known tracks remastered from eye-wateringly expensive original vinyl releases by William Barlak, Living Colour & Carol Meriwether rub shoulders with the truly obscure and utterly wonderful French-Canadian disco outfit Black Sun in what can only be described as a musical celebration like you’ve never heard before.
This ‘Italian Job’ is guaranteed to do more than just ‘blow the bloody doors off’.
