UK disco edit and electro-funk hero Greg Wilson sails beyond the vinyl revival, reel-to-reel in tow
Hopkins just started an online organization called the San Francisco Disco Preservation Society (find it at www.twitchrecordings.com) to collect and celebrate Bay-centric edits and reel-to-reel mixes. "As for the edit scene now, there seem to be two kinds being produced. There are easy-sounding ones that just extend the good parts. Then there are more serious ones that take the original and make it into something new and more moody. I think that's good for the future — because sometimes I have to laugh. Disco kids these days are pulling anything out of vinyl resale bins from 20 years ago and calling it 'classic' when most of it is crap. It was crap back then, too. Making it into anything different is doing it a favor, really."
