Year of the Edit - DJ Trew
Each week in 2011, the "Year of the Edit," Dollar Bin Jams and Young Robots Records will be debuting one exclusive edit for your enjoyment!
This week's edit comes from my homie DJ Trew in Chicago. Many years ago, I stayed at Trew's crib for a few days, it was above a weird clock store and I think his roommate was Maker. Skinny and I had hopped in the car and driven all over the East Coast and the Midwest and hollered at anybody and everybody like "can we come play in your town." We played a few shows with Trew, traded some tunes and he introduced us to many of the folks that we still work with in the Chi to this day.
Trew is always on top of what's funky, and this edit he sent along is no exception. It's part of his "After Disco Chicago" project, which is a series of events, edits and mixes exploring the post-disco era. Right in the Dollar Bin Jams wheelhouse amirite?
