Stag-O-Lee presents the third and fourth volumes of Slow Grind Fever on one CD
Includes 12-page booklet.
Volume Three was compiled by Richie1250, founder of the Slow Grind Fever club night, Melbourne's only slow dance party; Volume Four was compiled by London's DJ Diddy Wah, who is known for his Diddywah Blog, his radio show, and his constant presence as a host and DJ for London club nights like Heavy Sugar, Get Rhythm, and others. The decade between 1953 and 1963 offers an endless supply of danceable, up-tempo tunes. We're talking rhythm 'n' blues, and the phase in the early '60s when it morphed into soul (now called new breed), as well as popcorn -- Belgian music with a mid-tempo style and a high groove-factor. The Slow Grind Fever series highlights the slower side of this period, and takes its title and inspiration from Richie1250's club night, an event devoted to only the "slowest, spookiest, sweetest records" the DJs could find, with folks dancing "real slow in a haze of smoke and dim red light."
