BURGER OF THE YEAR, WOAH
Sozzz for being slack this month, so much shit has been going on which is exciting but exhausting. Huge thanks to everyone who came down to the Death Strobe launch!!
Let's just get some music happening. The latest C.O.M.B.i. record finally arrived for the second time after the first delivery was snapped in half :( so it's late but worth the wait. I really loved this track from How We Do In NYC, super stoked that it's out on its own for everyone's dancing pleasure. Huge peak-time disco mania. Eric is WAYYYY too good.
C.O.M.B.i. - Kill [buy]
Also nothing new but I'm really mesmerised by this rad Leftside Wobble edit of Tomorrow Never Knows, one of my favourite tracks from my favourite Beatles album. Sooo psychedelic. I suppose half of what impresses me about this is the selection of the song itself as something to dancify. Yeah this is cool shit.
The Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows (Leftside Wobble Edit)
Have had a great couple of weeks going through all my old jazz fusion / funk / soul CDs from way back, and realised this Herbie Hancock track was probably the very first time I was obsessed with a 'disco' song. Yes I'm using the term loosely but as far as Herbie's catalogue goes this was getting pretty close to his disco dabbling. Still a contender for all time favourite artist, I'm not really sure why I've never posted any Herbie before. If you're not at least familiar with his Head Hunters era stuff, that's about as essential as music gets. Also here's a cool Beatconductor mix of a track from 1980 which is around when he was really hitting the disco vibe.
Herbie Hancock - The Traitor [buy]
Herbie Hancock - Saturday Night (Beatconductor Special Disco Rework)
Shit how ancient can we get... I know I'm just about the last to board the Tiger & Woods train. Although I got their first record when it came out it sort of slipped into the shadows and I never really picked up on the Caddy Shag EP until the Jacques Renault mix I posted last month. Anyway, rock solid thumping funk house reworking of Jimmy Ross' First True Love Affair. Loves it.
Tiger & Woods - Deflowered [buy]
Picnic this Saturday at Gilligan's with MAURICE FULTON woahhhh spoooooooge, followed by Picnic (AGAIN) at 202 Broadway on Sunday with a 5 hour set from Derrick May. Sosososososososo ridiculous.
