Morgan Geist

Unclassics Environ

On the year's best officially released DJ mix, Unclassics, Morgan Geist turns water into wine by presenting Italo and Euro disco of the early Eighties as a clean, soulful form. He plays down Italo's low-rent synth-love and emphasizes its disco roots, peaking with Purple Flash's "We Can Make It," a low-key instrumental with a devastating melody that's likely to elicit as many tears as hands in the air. Wisely speaking with smart song selections instead of flashy mix skills, Geist recreates the electroclash alternative he and Metro Area partner Darshan Jesrani once provided during their residency at Manhattan nightclub APT, where the duo favored class to rival club Luxx's trash.
