Recorded in 2006, and distributed by Good Records NYC on CD in 2008, "Fire Keep On Burning" was an excursion into the still relatively unknown world of Caribbean Disco. Meant to be the launch of a mini-series of an Island Disco theme, this was my only properly distributed mix of the tropical sounds I had been collecting over the years. If you never got a copy, it is now finally available for a free download. So smoke your spliffs, and enjoy the ride into the funky unknown. Mixed with love by yours truly, Love On The Run.
P.S. My buddy Mcboingboing and I are working on a little project with the help of our friend overseas, so that some of these obscure tunes (and many more that are not on this mix) can finally see the light of day. Stay tuned!!!

We got a little crew together and celebrated our friend Sam's birthday in NYC this Tuesday night. It was an international crew in BK playing the little records that pack a big sound. Thanks to the tight crew for keeping it sweet and soulful.
See you at the next party...

I'm hyped to be hosting a new mix Zaf Zafsmusic tailor made for Secret Rendezvous. He came through with some seriously DEEP Disco, Blue Eyed Soul, Gospel and more beautiful jams to keep your head bopping along, and keep you coming back for more. Download "Free & Easy" now by clicking HERE.
For those of you that may not already know Zaf, he may be behind some of your favorite rare Disco and Soul compilations, runs a specialty vinyl shop on www.zafsmusic.com, and is certainly well known to the clientele of UK record shop Reckless Records in SOHO where he was a buyer, and eventually part owner from 1988-2006.
Check some of the credentials:
When it comes to compilations, Zaf provided both the records and liner notes for the popular P&P Records Compilations fronted by Danny Krivit, Keb Darge and Kenny Dope, and is also behind one of my favorite recent compilations on BBE "Americana: Rock Your Soul". You may already be familiar with his "Deep Disco Culture" comps on Suss'd, "Deep Disco & Boogie" series on Kindred Spirits, and most recently his "Private Wax" comp on BBE, filled with essential deep Disco joints. Be sure to keep an eye out for his upcoming LTD 12" Private Wax series, and his follow up comp on BBE, Americana: Volume Two coming soon.
On the production tip, Zaf is partners with UK House music soldier Phil Asher, and together they have released 3-4 tracks together, and expect to release some more tunes in the future.
On the DJ tip, Zaf has the honour of playing at Southport this year with dj's like Kon, Dimitri from Paris, Sadar plus many more. Over 6000 people over 3 days. That's in May, and then he is off to the Sunsplash Festival in Turkey, Antalya for the 2nd year in a row. According to Zaf that that festival is like heaven on earth!
Now that you know a little more about Zaf, we hope you enjoy the tunes, support his releases and spread the sweet sounds around...
