the vital ESG release you need. part soul, disco and most importantly punk- ESG where trailblazers for sampling in the mid 90s-80s. bass ridden tracks like "moody" "dance" and "Get Funky" still sound good now, and fire off well at DJ sets. the most important track is the simply bizarre UFO, which is a instrumental piece with a haunting organ hook thru out. check them out. you'll be pleasantly pleased with to be found, especially the amusing "Erase you" (which bizarrely, appears again on ESG's companion album the rarities collection on soul jazz!)

ESG – A South Bronx Story (1983)

• The Scroggins sisters – Deborah (bass, vocals), Marie (congas, vocals), Renee (vocals, guitar), and Valerie (drums) – formed ESG when their mother bought them instruments to keep them off the streets and out of trouble. In short order they went from a rough group of untalented musicians (alas, Ma Scroggins couldn’t afford lessons to go with the instruments) to a unique, female-driven funk act. They reportedly started writing their own songs so that audiences wouldn’t know when they messed up covers. And while ESG’s reputation grew during the 90’s because they were endlessly sampled, their own music was so generally ignored that they named a 1993 release Sample Credits Don’t Pay Our Bills.
