The Missing Link To The Missing Genre

DJ Deeon – Much Respect (from Funk City 12″ 1994)

Deeon made a straight up Reggaeton beat on this really early 12″ and I’m curious if the title is actually a nod to the Puerto Ricans on the north side of town. I don’t imagine he got many requests for anything Dem Bow related back in the day, so I’m even more puzzled why this exists. It wouldn’t captivate House fans and it wouldn’t make it on Latin radio ether, so why the hell did he make it? I don’t think we will ever find out, but it’s nice to know that there is a precursor to the Violator Juke Squad presence at the Humboldt Park festival. Now I only wish that there was a more prevalent meeting between the two genres that resulted in something interesting, because I’ve sorta played this song out.
