Need a gift for a gifted musician?
My name is Jess and I love dance music, plain and simple. The first albums I ever purchased with my own money were by Chic, Peaches & Herb, and Kool & the Gang. By travelling the world during my teenage years, I learned, not only about popular groups like Boney M.and Ottowan, but also different kinds of ethnic music. I really fell in love with club music during the early LA underground raves. Within these expansive, illegally utilized warehouses, dance music became a way of life for me. My favorite music is nu disco and, in particular, re-edits(from Motown to mambo). I especially love anything downtempo that is influenced by jazz, funk, soul, swing, reggae, disco, house, and world music. I just can't get enough. I enjoy the occasional midtempo bpms as well. So, if you have similar tastes, I hope you find some tracks you like within my "favorites" section. I greatly appreciate the talents of all the artists represented and believe in showing my support by buying their music whenever it's released digitally. I treasure each track for the gem that it is, especially since it is often not widely available, if at all. Please feel free to contact me if you have any suggestions. I always love hearing about new music. Cheers!
