Its hard to believe that it has been 20 years since the first Joey Negro record "Do It, Believe It" was released on New York's trend setting house label Nu Groove.
Unsure of an act name for the track Dave Lee made up a spoof alter ego from two records he had next too his desk at work - Pal Joey and J Walter Negro - it wasn't something he anticipated would be used for more than that one track let alone the next 20 years...
To celebrate Joeys extensive career Z Records are releasing a 20 Years of Joey Negro album highlighting his best productions including the highly regarded Sunburst Band productions from the last 10 years.
To add yet more to the package Grant Nelson has been drafted in to mix the Joey Negro CD and DJ Spinna serves up The Sunburst Band mix on CD2.
Not content to simply mix the album, Grant Nelson requested the original parts for some of the tracks and spent a few weeks in the studio crafting his own interpretations on some classic Joey Negro tracks.
His reworkings include a full remix of the classic Raven Maize Forever Together, which will rock pretty much any dancefloor anywhere. Also, check the new edits of Yolanda Wyns I Know You, I Live You, a full vocal version of Nicola Fasanos mix of Must Be The Music and an extended take on the JN remix of Masters At Work Backfired.
