Song of the Day: Jesse Velez – Girls Out On The Floor

So here’s a song I missed the first time around. This is the second single released on Trax Records and I had just started DJing around this time and wasn’t making trips yet to Grammaphone and Importes Etc for cool local music. I found it in a bargain bin years later and didn’t like it then but now I think it’s great. I love finding ‘new’ music right in my own record crates.
So since I have never seen his name again, I did some Googling. The story goes that he committed suicide just before this song became a club hit. Well, that’s a buzzkill. But instead, let’s remember the good times and dance to his early latin-house classic.
