  1. Here's the latest 45 Live Radio Show featuring my guest DJ FLORIAN KELLER, archived for your entertainment. Florian takes us into a journey of records that are celebrating their 40th birthday....a shrewd mix of sounds that hit the clubs and filled the floors way back when. From a dose of classics to some more underground cuts, this mix has gotcha covered for tunes celebrating their year of conception. Your host gets things moving with a dip into gospel and then keeping the modern side of the soul flowing. It's a celebration of the 45 rpm single like no other....joining the dots one lil' disc at a time.

    Divine Chord Gospel Show pt. 90 - Su-Ann The Starmaker Label

    And here's the mixcloud archive..... Following the success of our D-VINE SPIRITUALS 45's LABEL FOCUS, we've decided to shine the spotlight on the Hoyt Sullivan Enterprises subsidiary; SU-ANN - THE STARMAKER LABEL HOYT SULLIVAN was an interesting character, to say the least...he ran his umbrella label HSE, alongside a small number of offshoots, releasing arguably some of the most crucial material to appear in the gospel soul market. Here we focus on SU-ANN. He dubbed it The Starmaker Label....the dreams were big, but the reality was quite the opposite. Mr Sullivan has been rumored to be not the businessman he appeared to be consequently leaving his labels in various states of disarray. From funk to sweet to modern to deep....dive in!

    Rev. Edna Isaac: Beautiful world

    As I've already mentioned, everything released on Moton is an edit.....so generally, tracks that are re-arranged, re-eq'd with more often than not, added percussive elements. Bootlegs are straight lifts of an artists work....edits are a totally different market and mindset, pressed in small numbers, to appeal to a particular type of dancefloor. I doubt many edits are licensed, unless tracks like Blueboy's 'Remember Me' start to take off and sell many 1,000's....then a license would be required, f'sure.

    Rev. Edna Isaac: Beautiful world

    OK, so....Moton Records, Inc. is a re-edit label. Various producers under various guises rework tracks and turn them into club friendly records. They've been on the circuit for many years and have released a number of tracks that have become DJ tools. None of their releases are carvers.....they are pressed in relatively small quantities so to actually make any money out of them is virtually impossible. It's really done for the love, quite honestly. I've released two 12"s with them, re-editing a total of 5 tracks....re-arranging, eq'ing and adding additional percussive elements to beef the tracks up for a modern club setting. The track in question in this thread was reworked by David Hill (ex-Nuphonic) and sharpens the original Greene Sisters cut into a floor stompin', compact and concise winner. The identity of this track has been known for some time in clubbing circles, and only now is it trickling into the 'northern' sect....thanks to plays by Mr. Fish, and I guess me too....it's been a fixture in my playbox (for the relevant clubs) for some time. Hope that answers a few questions. Cheers!
