Buoyed by the incredible love felt for TSTD Vol. 1 in summer 2014, Berlin’s renowned pop archaeologist, that master musical excavator DJ Supermarkt, has leapt straight back into the soft-top and been out digging for the lost gems you’ll find here on Volume 2.
This is another perfect collection of missing-in-action, late-70s/early-80s smooth, singer/songwriter, AOR-paced, yacht-based pop and blue-eyed soul. Every song brims over with that West Coast sunshine, and for Volume 2 we’ve dug even deeper into obscure corners of LA, London, even Cologne, to create an even more potent soundtrack to that lost world that’s somehow always with us.
Sure we love this music, but the reaction to volume 1 took even us by surprise. Rough Trade Shops gave it its prestigious “Best compilation 2014” award and clubs all over Europe invited us to hold Too Slow To Disco parties. If you think Volume 2 has a lot to live up to, you’d be right, but don’t you worry, it’s the smoothest transition from one to two.
(Much) more info after the jump, but first, for a taster of what to expect, we present the Too Slow To Disco Vol. 2 Minimix:
