This compilation dives into the deep ocean of grooves left behind from the KPM heyday in the 1970's and presents a comprehensive batch of dance friendly tracks. The mood is very much jazz and latin orientated with some fine examples coming from the great Francis Coppieters, Les Baxter and Juan Erlando. Throw in classic library tracks such as "Senior Thump", "Crash Course", "Swamp Fever" and the always welcome "Second Cut" and you have a collection that does the KPM legacy justice. This album is an excellent companion piece to "Setting The Scene: From The Vaults Of KPM" which you can download here. I will post further volumes from the Music For Dancefloors series in the next few days.

THanks so much for this (and the 100s of other downloads I've availed myself of!) Superb blog - you've improved my coming months and years music listening 10 fold. Keep up the great work! :-)

Huge in 70s and 80s in commercials and video news releases. Is it KPM? Where can I find this?
