Why UNCLASSICS? That`s easy: they ain`t the usual disco suspects! Morgan Geist, one half of the acclaimed production duo Metro Area and owner of the innovative Environ label, has lovingly assembled this debut DJ mix featuring a selection of his favorite obscure electronic funk and disco tracks from 1978-1985. UNCLASSICS is a perfectly-mixed fix of rare Italodisco, hot European boogie and even Soviet cosmic funk (Zodiac`s "Pacific") blended together seamlessly and incorporating Geist`s studio mastery. Such spaced-out rarities have turned heads and opened minds when played in sets from innovative DJs like Metro Area, Daniel Wang, cult hero DJ Harvey and DJ I-F (the master behind the pioneering "Mixed Up in the Hague" mix CD). Despite the newest of these tracks approaching 20 years old, the playful experimentation and raw grooves sound fresher than most of the music being played in clubs today. As is always the case with Environ, this collection is all about the details and features painstaking remastering from original masters and eye-catching design by Julian Morey (Factory Records, The Hacienda, VOGUE).
