Mr Peabody on BBE

Who doesnt know and love BBE Records? They've always backed true diggers and come up with superbly well made compilations. With many years under their belt you'd think they might have run out of steam, but this couldn't be farther from the truth. Upcoming releases suggest they're stepping up their game and digging deeper than ever before. Their latest comp with Mr Peabody Records from Chi Town called 'The Real Sound Of Chicago and Beyond' is a veritable treasure trove of unknown and unheard delights. Mr Peabody Records doesn't really need an introduction, if you're a vinyl hunter/collector and you've been to Chicago, then you've also been to Peabody's (I count myself lucky to have been); the guys behind the store really know a thing or two about rare gems. So for this compilation they've unleashed two full cd's of tracks they've hunted down over the years, plus there are some re-edits included in the selection. For this second collection (the first was released in 2009) they 'decided to provide Dance music from all around the world' instead of music made only in Chicago, they say 'It's also important to us that those non-native Chicagoan artists receive their just dues as well'. Head for the BBE site for more info, sound clips and an easy way to get the release... and check out Mr Peabody's monster edit of Total Eclipse's 'Space Disco Boogie' below, for insanely good Afro'ish Disco Funk... sorry no download, but definitely check it anyway...
