London-based disco man Discosocks has unveiled the third edition of his Sock Drawer Secrets, which is a series of downloadable disco edits used by DS during his genre-bending DJ sets.
You can grab all three edits below for free and feel free to help yourself to the first and second editions too. This month’s edition includes Fire Fox’s ‘Round Trip Ticket’, Kwick’s ‘Nightlife‘ and The Three Degrees’ ‘Giving Up, Giving In‘.
1. Fire Fox – Round Trip Ticket: “I first discovered Fire Fox via their inclusion on the soundtrack of “Breakin'”. As a group they were very much in the vein of The Pointer Sisters, which I’m sure you’ll hear in this gem. Round Trip Ticket is an overlooked album track with a enough energy to cause a complete disco meltdown on the dance floor.”
2. Kwick – Night Life: “Produced by the magnificent Allen A. Jones of The Bar Kays, Kwick’s sessions yielded tons of tracks that were nothing short of weapons. There’s no hiding from this groove!”
3. The Three Degrees – Giving Up, Giving In: “A Giorgio Moroder produced late-night disco roller, oozing with style and sass. It peaked at #12 in the U.K. but seems rarely heard these days. Giorgio signature chomping synths power this one along beautifully.”
