New York City's Joseph Longo should need no introduction. One of the most important and genre defining artists on the scene, his seminal releases under aliases Earth People, French Touch and most notably Pal Joey, have left their indelible fingerprint on house music to this very day. German label Ornaments have sought out Japanese producer Takeshi Fukushima (GWM, Takecha) to curate this collection of some of Longo's finest moments under the Pal Joey moniker. Picking out a few favourites from the catalogue and adding some personal retouches, he presents the jazzy kinda somethin' of opener "Hot Music", the deep and sensuous bounce of numbers like "Mood 7" and "When I Get Kindness", the off-kilter/low slung boogie down vibe of "Bounce" and four other timeless classics that have all been given a respectful reshape for modern dancefloors. Absolutely essential!
