factory
Fac.Dance is a new comp collecting the beat-heavy output of Factory Records’ earlier days and intentionally avoiding their heady acid-house era. Some really good stuff that probably hasn’t been on CD in a few decades, if at all. I know quite a bit of it was only available on wax. It is released on October 10th with a choice of 2xLP, 2xCD or MP3 courtesy of those djhistory.com folks Strut Records and Bill Brewster and the tracklisting is next…
