Tom Moulton is one of the most important people in the history of dance music. From inventing the first ever 12" single to remixer to the stars, the trademark “A Tom Moulton Mix” is a mark of quality given to only the finest records -- From Grace Jones' seminal “La Vie En Rose” to the million-selling MFSB disco anthem “Love Is The Message,” to over 4000 remixes. Tom Moulton began his career in the early 1960s as a promotions man at the legendary R'n'B label King Records, home of James Brown, Little Willie John, Hank Ballard and The Midniters and many more. In 1971, he visited New York's Fire Island, the infamous gay holiday resort where he describes seeing “white men dancing to black music” for the first time. It was here that Tom Moulton first began splicing up tapes for the discotheque. In the early 1970s DJs played 45rpm seven-inch singles which lasted around three minutes. Tom Moulton wanted to extend the time of a song in order to keep people on the dancefloor. His first remix was BT Express’ “Do It Til You're Satisfied,” followed by “Peace Pipe” which he extended to over six minutes long -- and with this invented the remix. He then took this further with Gloria Gaynor's “Never Can Say Goodbye” which Tom Moulton mixed together as an 18-minute medley, once again designed for dancers. This is the first album to bring together some of the classic and rare tracks that have been blessed with “A Tom Moulton Mix” on the record label. It is the story of one man and his amazing role in the history of the rise of disco from its funk and soul roots to the hedonistic days of Studio 54 and the Paradise Garage. Artists: Al Downing, Eddie Kendricks, Grace Jones, Isaac Hayes, B.T. Express, Don Downing, Camouflage, Patti Jo, South Shore Commission, Clara Lewis, Detroit Emeralds, Orlando Riva Sound, The Lovers, MFSB, Andrea True Connection, Udell.
