The Micro Werks label inaugurated its catalogue mid-2009 with a number of original compilations from many different genres--Motown, doo-wop, '70s blaxploitation soul, children's music--as well as more eclectic fare like Sarah Palin on-the-campaign-trail (THE SAGA OF CARIBOU BARBIE) and even Alfred Hitchcock LPs! 12-INCH DISCO ORIGINALS VOL. 1 fits right in with the hip but accessible Micro Werks approach. Lengthy 12-inch versions of '70s disco hits were just the beginning of modern DJ culture; these discs were just made to be scratched and mixed together according to BPM. Even listened to straight, the extended versions of Lipps Inc.'s "Funky Town" and the Miracles' "Love Machine" are sure to recall hot frenzied nights in the '70s.
