BLOG: GOSPEL DISCO VINYL MIX: COLLECTED RHYTHMS 4 mixed by GIAN ARPINO


RARE GOSPEL DISCO VINYL MIX by GIANO ARPINO

Many many years ago in Sydney, we bumped into a local DJ, CRATE DIGGER & all-around good bloke GIAN ARPINO warming things up for DAM FUNK tour. On that night he dropped some of the finest 1980s-inspired boogie funk we had heard at the time.

Has been sending us dope mixes, podcasts & wine recommendations for the best part of 15 years now since we hand this FUNK blog. We connected then & he introduced & educated us to so much of the music that has formed the foundation of pretty much everything we do today. This latest mix is a special one for us being massive fans of GOSPEL, it is an Easter mix showcasing some of the rare GOSPEL DISCO goodness in his record collection under his new project COLLECTED RHYTHMS.

Check him out on socials for more info on any releases, podcasts & gigs around town & wine recommendations.
