Kirk Degiorgio - London Xpress

I’ve moved it onto the TipTop Soul Servers for permanent hosting rather than the conditional service provided by SendSpace so it will always be available to every one of you disco dogs. I’ve edited all four parts together so don’t sleep, click and snag this gem of a mix. Been getting some pretty consistent play in casa de Chukkles after ck dropped his cd copy on our Italia road trip as we boogied our way along the autoroutes. Broadcast as part of the Nuphonic Records London Xpress series (unsure if this was a podcast or on the radio) back in 2001.

Nuphonic Records is sadly now defunct so unfortunately couldn’t just go to the website to get the tracklist as Kirk mentions. Pieced it together from the show, some googling of the lyrics and help from folk on this thread on DJHistory (where you can download the parts separately if you wish). If you know any of the remaining unknown tracks, spread the love and leave a comment, I’ll update this post (all solved). Definitely a mix to put on whilst getting ready to go out on Saturday night, all tracks have been tweaked and re-edited driving the mix forward. Well known classics and more obscure disco/boogie ditties get a little bit of Degiorgio treatment, it’s all good.
