about

"a highly desirable package from an always-vital artist." (Resident Advisor, 4.0 / 5)

Originally released in 2014 as part of a limited box set which included a 12” of edits, a mix cd, and a t shirt, these 3 tracks are finally seeing the light of day as a digital release. This was conceived of as a homage to the soundtracks of 70’s porn, with the artwork based on Swedish erotica. DJ Nature is a long term fan of the “incredible disco soundtrack” that he heard growing up on these old porno flicks.

Tracks feature Willie Williams on wind instruments, Fred McFarlane on keys and Ron Pacaud on guitar. Fred co-wrote Robin S` “Show Me Love”, Fonda Rae`s “Over Like A Fat Rat”, and Jocelyn Brown`s “Somebody Else’s Guy”. He sessioned on most of the Shep Pettibone / Madonna early stuff, then with the Fatback Band, Crown Heights Affair, Unlimited Touch, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Mary J Blige to name a few. He was also in the bands Logg and D-Train. Willie Williams performed with Art Blakey, Charles Earland, Groove Holmes, Jackie Byard as well as others.

DJ Nature: “Dancing is nothing but part of the sexual experience if we are to be totally honest, so I just get a little more to the point and try and make people think a little….. For example the song “Gentle Persuasion” is basically two people experimenting in a relationship, where the woman is taking the upper hand. Now in some parts of the world that may be a normal thing, but in the black community the bedroom is pretty much a male dominated playground, which I find fucked up. So when I came across this interaction I was over the moon, in fact it kind of kick started me into a creative frenzy. The thing is I don’t want people to think that’s the only thing on my mind, but if it’s realistic and people can relate to it I’ll use it.”
