‘Fac. Dance’ Collects Gems From Factory Records Catalog

Here at Strut, we’re pretty huge fans of Factory Records, which should come as no surprise. Factory staples such as Quando Quango’s “Love Tempo” have been compiled on our ‘Disco Not Disco’ series, and music from Factory’s vast catalog has long been heavily featured in our DJ sets and general listening. For ‘Fac. Dance’ we decided to focus on some of the label’s early output, narrowing in on some key dance floor cuts that comprise some of our favorite 12 inches and late night classics. We were lucky enough to have involvement from some of the label’s key participants, including iconic designer and cover artist Peter Saville. Our friend Bill Brewster of DJHistory.com assembled the compilation and contributes the liner notes. Check the track list below, & look for the album at the end of October.
