Defected Presents Glitter Box Love Injection 2018





Defected are back with another Glitter Box double album. Taking the time unlike most other major label compilation album providers to actually curate and carefully choose the finest tracks from back in the day and also provide a selection of contemporary grooves. Label boss Simon Dunmore is that very man who plays from the heart and not the pocket, which is what makes this album appear as a labour of love.



Disc 1 is  more on the Disco Boogie side as it begins with "Change" and their bouncy classic track "Searching" Followed by female divas Gwen Guthrie and Melba Moore. Alton Mclain and Destiny provide the next track which is called "It Must Be Love" a string driven classic that even I have sampled over the years on my track entitled "Like This" for Masterworks Records. 





The album features the sublime track from Hot Toddy called In the Genes. and then their are several re-edit and remix tracks such as Sylvesters Dance by Louie Vega and the classic track by Jomanda called Got A Love For You, the Silk Hurley remix which was a big vocal anthem from 1993.

Disco two is more on the house vibes. The Urban Blues Project Love Dont Live was a great track back in the day and is still sounding fresh now. A few more Boogie vibes appear throughout here and a surprise track is Hall & Oates huge pop soul anthem I cant got for that. Which no matter how many times you hear that it is still as infectious as ever. 

There are modern producers such as Midland and Eli Escobar and the fabulous remix of Cola by Mousse T which add to the dynamics of both old and new being blended together to provide a fine balance from the house and the disco worlds.

So overall a great album of two discs that are worthy in any collection. Available on the 16th of Feb 2018 at all stores both download and double compact disc.
