Teenage DJ aka Greg Wilson ‘Tis Better To Have Loved And Lost Than Never To Have Loved At All’
Previously limited vinyl only 2005.
The closing track on the ‘Teenage DJ Disco Best’ 12”, again put together in the period prior to my DJ comeback. Started out with the working title ‘Love Lost’, short hand for the source track and a big personal favourite, ‘The Love I Lost’ by Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes.
I’m just working a series of loops, whilst running some straight 4/4 disco beats underneath. I pitched it up quite fast as it seemed to work best this way. The whole thing is geared towards the breakdown, or more specifically the re-entry of the drums, this time a section of 60’s Motown beats, the contrast giving the track a completely different dynamic before it reverts to its former flavour for the final furlong.
