Reeno founded Spazzoid Records, which functions out of New York City.
The label is primarily used to distribute his own productions, but may expand to include other artists in the near future.
Heavily inspired by classic disco, funk, jazz-funk, electrofunk, early rap, new age, & classic rock, SPAZZOID RECORDS, NYC releases are a composite of all these styles.

Spazzoid Records has two new sublabels: NYC RECORDS & KUPCAKE RECORDS

In the modern sense, the label can be classified as "Modern Funk", "Nu Funk/Nu Disco", or "Balearic", but I personally prefer the term "SPACE DISCO"!!
(I am a synth dude at heart)

Very respectable cover of Hipnotic's "Are you Lonely", 1988 style.

Another "answer record" that came out at a time when this was commonplace. The lyrics are flipped obviously, but what I find intriguing about these records is how close/far the production came to the original song, since phrase sampling did not... See full review

Great track! And aesthetically near identical to Jimmy Ross' "First true love Affair". Same writers/producer/musicians, possibly even the same engineer and studio.

it may be a cover, but the melody is not exact. At all.

No evolution really. This was the emerging urban sound of the early 80's Every producer was doing it at the time, but that does not mean it all sounded the same.

Decent album, but nothing else on the LP is aesthetically like "Knockout" with it's synthed-out lushness.

Another overlooked 12" from the stellar boogie-funk era! Slammin synth production & vocals. Great organ solo...grab it!

Good track, but perhaps a bit overrated? "Wanna love Ya" by Morgan on the same label is stronger, but not as talked about.

I'm a Madonna fan, but far from a die hard. I did not buy this album when it was released..In fact, I only listened to it for the first time 4 years ago.
Could not get into it at all. I can tell it's good, just not good for me.

ALL the Mike & Brenda Sutton singles were great. So is the LP they are from, but sound better on the 12" singles and are (of course), longer.

Just as good as "Born a Winner"? perhaps even better. Another mid tempo production from the Crown Heights Affair team, and with Scorching vocals from Terri.

A slow burner from the Crown Heights Affair team. EVERYTHING they did at this time was excellent, and this one is no exception. Great vocals too.

It's all about the b side, "Here we are". This record should be fetching big buxx because of it, but sadly it's slept on. This track is high powered funk with kick ass vocals. 5/5.
