Podcast 132: My Cousin Roy

New York's reignited love affair with disco has been going strong for more than a decade now, and My Cousin Roy has been right in the thick of it. As head of the Wurst label, Roy has played a key role in the scene's thriving re-edit culture while also overseeing some of NY's most legendary parties. This past winter he was holed up in the studio, often with fellow NYC DJ/producer Nick Chacona, with whom he operates under the name Beg to Differ. But now that spring has arrived, more releases from Wurst and Beg to Differ—some of which are previewed in this exclusive mix—are on the way. In the meantime, My Cousin Roy is in Europe, where he's kicking off a tour this week. For those of us on this side of the pond, we'll have to tide ourselves over with this hour-long mix of disco, house, electro-funk, and more until the man returns Stateside.

this is the jam. The songs groove and at the same time is emotive. The sounds are warm, and I can't tell if they came form the 70s or the teens.

Kudos to Roy, but disco never died in NYC, Shawn...and it never will.
