If you haven’t already tuned into Midland’s edit of German Disco group, Orlando Riva Sound’s 1979 disco hit ‘Body To Body Boogie’ then it’s about time you do! Kicking off the third Stamp The Wax Advent Calendar compilation in style, Midland has upped the tempo and refined the original diligently.
Like the two previous years, all the proceeds go to charity and this year Stamp The Wax are supporting Giles Peterson’s charity, The Steve Reid Foundation, which Giles set up as a tribute to Steve who was a jazz drummer that sadly past away in 2010. Steve could not afford the medical treatment that could have saved his life and Giles was horrified by the conditions his good friend was living in during his last days. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Steve Reid’s life than to start a charity to help other musicians in his name. If you love music like I do, please support the people making it.” - Giles Peterson.
