Earth Wind & Fire – September

Earth Wind & Fire – SeptemberWe’ve got that #FridayFeeling and to kick start our first #FlashbackFriday for month of February we must salute the legendary Earth Wind & Fire due to the sad news of the bands founder #MauriceWhite passing away this week.

This band has countless party anthems to choose from, but to pick one track that united every age group on the dancefloor, we’ve picked their 1978 classic ‘September’ for the feel good factor and to honor the legacy of the multi-instrumentalist and visionary Maurice White.

London RnB parties have always taken great pleasure in flashing back to some of the best funk, boogie, and rare grooves, to both entertain and educate the various age groups on the dancefloor, but when its comes to Earth Wind & Fire almost all demographics have heard and experienced the magic of their funky, disco filled anthems packed with trippy looking videos with psychedlic effects.

Earth, wind & Fire

September was produced by Maurice White and featured on their album ‘The Best Of Earth Wind & Fire’ compilation in 1978, which was combination of styles showcasing the bands creative and very funky talents. The album was certified as quintuple platinum selling over 5,000,000 million copies and winning a Grammy.

Maurice White

Maurice dug deep with ‘September’ to push the boundaries of Disco merged with R&B and lots of soulful vocals, layered with hamornies plus funky brass sections to lift the mood of anyone’s day whilst pack dancefloor’s worldwide. The single soared to number one on the US R&B charts and spent x8 weeks at the top of Billboard hot 100 certifying it as gold with over 1million copies sold and silver in the UK. September has been featured on TV shows such as Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, Guitar Freaks computer game, commercials and Olympic ceremony’s. Maurice White was crucial to the success of Earth Wind & Fire and although he retired from the band 1995 due to suffering from Parkinsons disease which he was diagnosed with in the late 80s, the band continued to tour along with his brother Verdine White keeping his memory alive.

Earth Wind & Fire are truly a remarkable group whose album’s uplift the mind body and soul, with artisic egyptian artwork that vinyl collectors love to display amidst their catalougue of creative album sleeves. Maurice White can now rest peacefully, and his music will indeed live ‘Forever’. R.I.P (December 19th 1941 – February 4th 2016).
