TJ Gorton’s 2007 Year in Review

posted by on December 28 at 12:05 PM


Well the end of the year is here and it was one of much discovery for myself. This year will go down as the year I became completely infatuated with everything disco (not to mention, the year that I moved to Seattle). I’ve always loved disco music, however this year I feel like I devoted a lot of my free time researching, listening, and learning about the genre that has come to influence me so much. So, in short, I gathered my favorite releases from 2007 as well as some of the great music that I discovered throughout the year. Hopefully 2008 will be just as good musically as it was for me in 2007.
