The brainchild of the so-called “fairy godmother of house” Abigail Adams, during the mid-80s and early 90s Movin’ Records defined the New Jersey sound. A regular at the iconic Roxy roller disco in New York, Adams’ skate-shop-turned-record-store was instrumental in supplying club resident Tony Humphries with the hottest records that everybody wanted to dance to. Danny Krivit, Larry Levan and Timmy Regisford were also Adams’ friends and regulars at the store.

Taking the natural step into releasing records, Movin’s first output was ‘I’ve Got The Music’ by Boyd Jarvis in 1987, followed by music from game changers like Phase II, 3 A.M. and Cassio The Cassmaster; straight up “Jersey jams” that producers are still attempting to replicate to this day. All those standout records and more appear on this compilation, lovingly selected and compiled by Luke Solomon as part of the 4 To The Floor series. Throughout the album, the golden touch of greats such as Kerri Chandler, Marshall Jefferson, Josh Milan and Kevin Hedge (of Blaze) can be heard on tracks like Dee Dee Brave ‘My My Lover’, Grampa ‘She’s Crazy’ (both co-written by Kerri), Vicky Martin ‘Not Gonna Do It’ (Larry Patterson 12” Mix) which was co-written by Marshall and Phase II ‘Reachin’ which was co-written and produced by Hedge and Milan. Once again fulfilling the role of your friendly record shop assistant, Luke digs for those lightbulb moments of musical (re)discovery so you don’t have to.
