  The Disco Demands series started sometime in the early 2000s - I couldn't give you an exact year because it didn't feel like a big deal, so I never noted it. I simply wanted to put out a compilation of some records I really liked and maybe make a little of the money back I was spending on them. Buy some food and stuff.

There's always been Disco comps around of course but there was rarely anything that strayed too far from the standards.. the same songs kept appearing over and over again, or the comps would feature records you could pick up anywhere for little money. I've never seen the point in that. I gave up judging a record on its value or rarity a long time ago but surely there's more to disco than Exodus, Martin Circus, Mass Production and all those Salsoul, West End and bloody Prelude records. So it was a nice surprise to find that there were other people out there who thought the same way. Volume 1 was pretty straight-forward - just some nice records, with the only edit being an instrumental of Disco Socks, a strange, thinly veiled reference to the disco sucks movement. Then on Volume 2 I included a few of my edits and introduced the cover up concept to the disco world. That caused a bit of controversy, which of course I loved. And so it continued for five volumes.

What we have here then is the full series, give or take one or two cuts, all remastered, many re-re-edited, with lots of nice naked pictures to boot. For those who've asked since day one "will there be vinyl" I can finally say yes, you're holding it!

KEY POINTS:

- The tracklist is made up of rare records that never get comped on other albums. 40 of the 45 tracks on this album were edited by Al Kent exclusively for this series and are not available elsewhere.
- Al Kent is one of the only DJs in the world today playing nothing but original vintage disco.
- Al's just back from an Australian tour with DJ gigs booked in the UK and Europe for the rest of the year.
- Edits released on his Million Dollar Disco label are supported by the likes of Mick Huckaby, Red Rack'em, Rahaan, Dimitri from Paris, The Revenge, Sadar Bahar, Eric Duncan and more.
- He's provided guest mixes for Spine Radio, Radio Magnetic, DJ Broadcast and has been interviewed for Mundo Vibes, DJ Broadcast and The House of Disco this year alone.
- According to one New York collector, the original Disco Demands series "changed the game" as far as disco compilations go.
- Al Kent was the first DJ to be asked to play a disco set in Southport Weekender's legendary Connoisseur's Corner, and the only DJ to be asked back again. He also played in the 2000 capacity main room alongside the likes of Frankie Knuckles, Kenny Dope and Nicky Siano at the event's "Friday Night Disco Extravaganza".
