This month Dig Deep on Cowbell Radio returns with another very special guest. Keeping up the Chicago tradition, disco don Zernell Gillie takes to the hallowed turntables to give us a rare studio mix.
Head honcho at the superb Grimy Edits record label since 2009 and often seen DJing with the likes of Marcellus Pittman, what Zernell doesn't know about disco, boogie and proper house music isn't worth knowing.
Having signed edits from the likes of Rahaan, Cratebug, Tim McAllister, as well as releasing a raft of his own edits alongside Goodking [reworking Skye, First Choice, Aquarium Dream, Sanctuary, Breakaway, Brenda Harris, Marti Lynn, Smokey Robinson, Loleatta Holloway etc into modern dancefloor stormers], the label's vinyl only releases are highly sought after and collectible. With a couple of compilation CDs in the bag and a forthcoming release from Boogie Nite, Grimy Edits is certainly one to keep an eye on in 2014.
As usual it's Zernell's skills as a DJ / selector that led me to ask him to do a mix for the show... believe me when I say the mix he has put together is 2nd to none and is up there with the likes of past guest mixes from Rahaan, Marcel Vogel, Mr Mendel, Bruce Ivery, John Morales etc etc etc.
So once again I am truly honoured to bring you an exclusive set straight from the Westside of Chicago that epitomizes the original deep disco sound of the Windy City.
Also on the show I'll be digging deep in my Brazilian record collection for some traditional sounds and newer productions. Plus we'll have the usual roll calls throughout and the Global Gig Guide towards the end of the show.
