It’s Friday; John E Dee’s Old School Dance Party is so close we can taste it and we’re pre-gaming with an ’80s legend. To qualify “legendary”, for starters, New Jersey’s Brian K. Morgan played guitar on the Sugarhill Gang classic, “Rapper’s Delight”, and that’s just one of countless iconic collaborations that made Morgan a household name more than three decades ago.
A couple years back Morgan turned some old demo tapes from 1987 into two fleshed out singles (featuring the help of family members), billed the recordings as B & The Family and instantly cemented himself in the modern funk scene. In 2018 B & The Family joined up with Austin Boogie Crew to release two more singles on 7″ vinyl: a 1984 re-release of “Just Want To Love Ya” and a modern funk remix of his 1987 original, “A Good Time”. Arranged by Pittsburgh producer BusCrates, this remix is a flawless blend of ’80s flashback and 21st century production techniques. Get your Dance Party started early on some old-school-meets-new-school with “A Good Time” (BusCrates Remix)!
