Z Records continues its commitment to unearthing the obscure and long forgotten tracks from the last 40 years through the ever-popular Under The Influence series. Following on from Red Greg, Paul Phillips, James Glass, Nick The Record and Sean P it’s now the turn of one of the scenes most respected live disco acts and renowned DJ’s, Faze Action.

 Robin and Simon Lee aka Faze Action, were championing disco and all its afro off-shoots back in the mid 90’s when it certainly wasn’t the latest trend to do so. “By the mid 90s we were heavily into Disco. Fuelled by radio shows from the likes of Norman Jay as well as conversations with customers in the record store where I worked, who were all super obsessed, we would talk disco for hours.” remembers Simon Lee. It was however their Original Disco Motion and In The Trees releases on nuphonic records that shaped the Faze Action sound and were defining moments of the time and played a large part in coining the term nu-disco. 

 Fast forward 20+ years and the brothers Lee are still pushing the modern disco sound with their live sets and studio productions Faze Action. Alongside their studio work they’ve always been serious record collectors so their selections for this latest Under The Influence album are reflective of their extensive collecting and digging history. As Simon confirms, “searching for and buying old records helps to keep our musical thirst alive and is a constant source of inspiration for both our DJ sets and our original productions.”

 Here they’ve included tracks taking in afro, italo, soul, funk, disco with many of the tracks costing hundreds if you were able to find the originals. They have also edited some of the tracks exclusively for this album adding yet more value to an already fully packed gatefold double LP
