Strut Records has released Walter Gibbons – Jungle Music (Essential & Unreleased Remixes 1976-1986), the first multi-label compilation of edits by Walter Gibbons, one of the most important and unheralded DJ / remixers in New York dance music history. He was a pioneer of reel to reel edits and the art of the remix, and a tangible link between early hip hop and disco through his quickfire turntable skills developed during the mid-‘70s. For more on Walter Gibbons, his life and his work, plus a free MP3 download, check out Strut Records. Above, enjoy the 70-minute-mix from Disco Sonitus (Blackbeard’s Toni Rossano & DJ D) made up of many of the tracks on the album.
More Walter Gibbons treats after the jump, including the Disco Sonitus mix tracklist, a video of Danny Krivit & Tony Smith sharing memories of Walter Gibbons and a free track from the album.
