Another tricky one...

I would like to name a writer & producer (as there are too many acts to choose from) - Patrick Adams. Great guy - Great pieces of work!
Together with Greg Carmichael I think they created some of the best NYC Disco...

Of Course I know there used to be a label called SONY, why do you think I called it the Sound Of New York instead of The New York Sound?? Pepe, "tremendo come mierda", that is you my friend!! You know me better than that!! I do believe that it will get a little tougher now!!

What was more New York then the Crown Heights Affair? Their music was so impressive, the guitar was so powerful, such a lead in the music. That separated them from all others. Great horns too!

I don't know. I truly believe that John Davis & The Monster Orchestra was The Philly Sound. They recorded 99% of their stuff in Sigma Sound Studios in Philly; and used most of MFSB when they recorded.

New York had their special studio that all the producers went to. It was called Media Sound Studios.
Producers such as Meco Monardo, Bert DeCoteaux, and Nile Rodgers used to "live" there and make music.

Crown Heights Affair was NY Sound; So was Kool & The Gang.

One of my favorites comes from the Patrick Adams (mentioned above) camp: He was a writer, producer, arranger, piano & synth player, and a bad ass lead singer; his name is:

***LEROY BURGESS***

He is definete NY Sound. He is responsible for, and had a hand in in many of our Disco/Dance Classics:

"MAINLINE" - Black Ivory
"LET'S DO IT" - Convention
"HOOKED ON YOUR LOVE" - Fantastic Aleems
"WEEKEND" - Phreek
"BIG TIME" - Rick James
"RELEASE YOURSELF" - Aleems
"I KNOW YOU WILL" - Logg
"MOMENT OF MY LIFE" - Inner life/Jocelyn Brown

--"put your hands up in the air-air-air and rock it like you just don't care, yea yo we gonna do it, do it, do it"'

His distinctive voice is much recognized by 'Disco fiends' but remained out of the limelight.
He was just about 'the music'.

--"Nothing is the same, ever since you came my bae-bay"

Hey Disco Guy, Vynil Junkie, This is a guy we should hook up to do one of your in-depth interviews with!!!!!!

Hey Pete,are you talkin' about Chic and their productions?Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards has a major influence in all dance music areas back in early 80s
