Everybody Get Down

Alphonse Mouzon has had a long and storied career in the music industry. He got his start as a jazz drummer and at some point had played with just about everyone including Roy Ayers, Larry Coryell, and Stevie Wonder. By the late 70's, he had evolved into a successful composer and producer. Like so many other soul and jazz musicians Alphonse caught the fever and started two excellent disco projects. The first being the female fronted Poussez and the other being Mouzon's Electric Band which was fronted by a male vocalist. The Electric Band cut one album in 1979 which featured the amazing 12 inch single "Everybody Get Down".

The track "Everybody Get Down" is a total dancefloor workout thanks to the incredible production value and the driving, hypnotic bassline
which keeps you on the floor,always maintaining the groove. The track has been a firm favourite with many great Djs over the years,and always a main stay in many peoples record boxes. Appearing on James Murphy (DFA)and Pat Mahoney's great Fabric mixed album a few years back has brought this track to a brand new audience. Enjoy. Click On Right Hand Arrow To Download...
