Especially when it comes to relaxed, sun-drenched grooves, Berlin-based Marcus Liesenfeld aka DJ Supermarkt has been an international institution on the turntables for many years. With “Too Slow To Disco”, launched in 2014, Liesenfeld is responsible for one of the most famous West Coast/ Yacht Pop compilation series, which enthuses not only West Coast AOR music lovers and yacht rock aficionados, but also a mainstream audience worldwide.
The 4th edition of the original compilation art form, “Too Slow to Disco”, featuring 16 forgotten and overseen gems from the mid 70s to the early 80s from a global world of smooth, brilliant lost and overproduced tracks from Finland via London and L.A. to Trinidad and beyond. Featuring artists revered in the scene such as The Dukes, Marc Jordan, Jimmie Spheeris and The Faragher Brothers – just to name a few.
According to Marcus Liesenfeld, “Too Slow to Disco 4” is also a love letter to the genre-smashing bravery of that era: “Yacht Pop rubbing shoulders with Christian Gospel, groovy Folk, Country-Soul and Blue-Eyed Soul.”
We are already looking forward to another great edition of the series.
