Artist: NYCTA 1989-1991 (Adam X and Function)
Recorded on: 20 August 2020
NYCTA is a project Adam X and Function have been pulling together, with many obstacles along the way, over the course of the last 10 years and this mix captures the essence of what we set out to achieve. It pays total homage to the sound and it's a sound that, in a scene where everything has already been largely reissued, hasn't had a light shone on it yet. Nugroove, yes. But this is much more than that. Though not overlooked in the history of electronic music when it comes to the early days of electro, hip hop and disco, New York City has been largely overlooked in it's contributions to the origins of techno and house music in America, while the cities of Detroit & Chicago have always taken most of the credit. Names like Joey Beltram, Frankie Bones, Lenny Dee, Tommy Musto, How & Little, Mundo Muzique, Damon Wild, Todd Terry, Kenny Dope, Ralphie Dee, Jimmy Crash, Rheji Burrell, Bobby Konders, Roger S, Blue Jean, L.B. Bad and of course Adam X were as instrumental in bringing both genres forward as the artists from the aforementioned cities.
