Image: 1590799 Z Records tap Nick The Record for their fourth volume of the Under The Influence series.

Following on from the phenomenal success of the recent “Italo House” and “Remixed With Love” compilation plus more
Joey Negro compiled albums including “GoGo Get Down”, “Backstreet Brit Funk”, “Destination Boogie” and the everpopular
Soul of Disco series Z Records continues to release high quality compilations filled with lesser known disco, funk and
boogie.
Now it’s the return of the highly regarded Under The Influence series with Volume Four compiled by Nick The Record.
My whole life has revolved around records.
I was buying Hip Hop and House in the Eighties as it was released and I got
heavily into tracing the steps back through breaks and sample sources that were used in Hip Hop records. I also joined the
dots between Disco & modern club & House music & spread my music explorations from Rare Groove to rare Disco. There
were very few people interested in this vein of music history at the time & even fewer as obsessed as me so when the reemergence
of Disco exploded I was well ahead of the curve, not only in collecting but historical knowledge. The best thing
about record collecting is it never ends and after 35 years of buying, after 25 years of selling & playing records there is still old
stuff to discover & new releases to endeavour to keep up with.
So as something of an expert in all things Disco I get quite a few offers to release compilations but as a record obsessive my
natural hoarding mentality makes me cautious to give up the goods. As anyone who’s been aware of my record selling
website www.djfriendy.co.uk over the last 10 years and my paper sales lists (now that’s old school) for more than 10 years
preceding, I could easily put together a compilation of the rarest Disco & Boogie 12 inches, and there are, of course, some
of those included but I wanted to share more than that here.
I feel this ‘Under The Influence’ series offers the chance to put together a more personal comp, which reflects the many
different flavours of my taste & my collection & gives you a feel of my DJ style at the same time.
