Working Mix

Here is the first mix of 2013!  It's called Working Mix. It is great to finally find some time to take care of music stylings and stitched together some great songs for your listening pleasure.  This mix has a great flux and brings some drama along with some quiet moments of reflection.  It also has an insane moment where  DJ Glamjack fuses three unlikely songs together.  Let's see if you can figure which song is that. I truly enjoyed making it and hope you enjoy it too!

No Cross, No Crown

We begin the year officially with two gorgeous and uplifting disco songs titled "No Cross, No Crown" and "The Message", both by gospel funk band Gloster Williams and Master Control from their LP Praying Spirit which was released in 1979.  Very little is known about this band but for sure they were able to fuse funk, disco and gospel to incredible results with their exuberant vocals and orchestration.  The saying No Cross, No Crown is usually interpreted as staying out of religion and politics.  I'm loving both songs and hope this will get you in the mood for some good old shaking gospel/spiritual disco.  Enjoy

No Cross, No Crown - Gloster Williams and Master Control
