Debut full length of original material from Kon on BBE! It's been a longtime coming, but it was well worth the wait. On My Way follows a string of killer edit 12"s, hot remixes, a couple prized digger compilations, and years and years of record collecting. Through the years Kon has earned a rep as one of the most respected digger/djs on the scene (BBE crowned him King Of Diggin'), and more recently has proved his skills on the production side of things with reworks of original multi tracks to classics from MJ, Sylvester, Cerrone, and more. Now with On My Way, Kon goes full circle by crafting completely original tracks from the ground up. Along with a close-knit team of musician friends, Kon has created an impressive set of funk-laced grooves that straddle the line between boogie, soul, and disco. The result is not only brimming with modern dancefloor energy, but also well informed about dance music's rich history. Check the funk on tracks like "All Night" with Amy Douglass or "She Was A Queen," get down to the smooth disco soul on "Dont'cha Wanna" with George Levin and "Awe Baby," then take it to the top with tough boogie grooves like "Blow Me A Kiss," and "On My Way." Impressive! Pressed up on double colored vinyl (one red, one orange) and housed in glossy gatefold sleeve. Recommended.
