Disco Baby, Y. Gershovsky, Floating Points & Red Greg Edit (7-Inch), Melodies International
Melodies International – Sam Shepherd aka ‘Floating Points’ started Melodies International in 2015 as a brand new reissue label whose soul aim is to share very special and relatively undiscovered sounds. With his roots digging in dusty crates and dingy basements, this is music that few ears have been lucky enough to hear before. These sounds of modern soul, disco and boogie come on when the restaurant is at full tilt. You’ll regularly find Sam at the bar, or with friends at the table, taking a break from his studio around the corner with a plate of anchovies and a glass of something delicious. A man of many talents, aside from his deep musical credentials, Sam is also a very fine pastry cook. Lockdown for us was filled with the best tarts, tourtes, biscuits and pastries. Who knows, we may twist his arm to get some ‘Shepherd’s Pies’ on the menu.

A few years ago, Melodies family members Floating Points and DJ Red Greg got their hands on a couple of original 70s obscurities. While these standout records shone brightly in their own right, the two DJs saw the potential to create their own edits behind the scenes, finely attuning the original versions to modern-day dancefloor standards. Of these new recordings, they cut only five copies for themselves and a few DJ friends of theirs.
Today, Melodies International is very proud to bring you MEL006 and MEL007. Fully licensed, lovingly mastered to the highest possible standards and carefully edited to dial up that dancefloor enjoyment, these two ‘You’re A Melody’ classics weren’t originally meant to get official releases. But due to popular request, they are now available to play and share in very special moments at parties around the world.
MEL006 arrives as a 7-inch, with the original version and the edit on the flip. First released in 1979 as a three-minute up-tempo library recordin, “Disco Baby”, one of 10 tracks off a record available to license for film, radio, television and other media, held some hidden magic that would only get uncovered almost four decades later. Informed by years of combined dancefloor experience, Floating Points and Red Greg have slightly tweaked the original material, realising that played in the right context, it can become a true disco anthem.
