VIDEO: Dimitri From Paris: Get Down With The Philly Sound

by Winston "Stone" Ford

Big up to BBE for dropping yet another dope compilation. This time it focuses on the “Philly Sound” from the 1970s. The post American Bandstand soul which laid the foundation for disco later in the decade. The key players–The Trammps, Eddie Kendricks, and Teddy Pendergrass–would go on to shape soul and R&B and continue a musical legacy that continues to this day.

French producer Dimitri from Paris (famous for my personal favorite A Night A The Playboy Mansion) explores the sound in this documentary in support of his two disc compilation titled Get Down With The Philly Sound. Check it.
