Another slamming post-Disco number from the early 80's lifted from the legendary SAM Records vaults. "This Beat Is Mine" has always been a "big" one, a Boogie classic (featured in Sean P's indispensable "Boogie Essentials list) and a sure fire party starter on any self respecting dance-floor! Produced by Gary R. Turnier (Of Gary's Gang fame) and Andre Booth (Of Northend, B.B.C.S. & A fame) the FUNK is definitely a factor on this cut! As if the original 1981 cut wasn't dope enough, Boston mixtape, digging and edits king Kon (of Kon & Amir, On track) got his hands on the reels and turned in a storming, respectful reworking for all you DJ's out there who want that extra "bomb" factor in the booth! As usual with Kon's edits this one packs a serious punch and this limited 12" repress is a bonafide essential to have in your bag! Don't snooze on this classic, Now made available again, legitimately licensed, remastered and reissued in conjunction with SAM Records New York City.
