Stix Records is a sub-division of Favorite Recordings, launched with the first official single by Taggy Matcher & Birdy & Nixon, who pleased us with two reggae-rocksteady renditions of songs by the famous Black Keys. Specializing in the exercise of producing covers with a reggae twist, the new label presents their first album, Disco Reggae. Many artists faithful to the stable of Favorite Recordings and its various sub-labels were invited for the occasion: The Dynamics, Blundetto, Grandmagneto, 7 Samurai, John Milk, and Taggy Matcher. All came and brought their respective touch to this first compilation, with, among other things, some of the rarest titles from their Big Single Records' years, but also four new and exclusive productions. Each of them delivers a great disco-reggae version of classic hits by artists as diverse as Madonna, Herbie Hancock, Justin Timberlake, The Commodores, The O'Jays, Curtis Mayfield, Harry Nilsson, and Sugarhill Gang. Whatever the genre or the period, nothing can resist their inventiveness and creativity, and sometimes their work can be confused as total originals. Everything was remastered and cut at Carvery Records (UK), known for their expertise in Caribbean and disco music. The vinyl LP comes in a deluxe version, housed in an old-school tip-on jacket.
