DEAD FRIDAYS: ATOMIC LOLLIPOP CHOPS

This past weekend, at ATOMIC LOLLIPOP, I allowed my inner nerd to run wild with the selecting. A week later, I’m continuing to give up the selecting power to that dorky little guy inside. That means the tunes below are gonna be mighty qwerky!

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: PLAY THAT BEAT FROM THE EARLY DAYS OF DJING

It feels weird putting HIP HOP in the OLDIES category, but I guess we’re finally at that point in history. Here’s a tune that deserves way more credit than it gets.

G.L.O.B.E. & WHIZ KID – PLAY THAT BEAT MR. D.J.

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: WHAT HAPPENED TO NU NU???

Here’s an interesting case of “hey, what happened?”

LIDELL TOWNSELL – NU NU

 

You won’t often see this single included in any CLASSIC HOUSE compilations, despite the fact that it was a #1 HIT back in 1992. It’s possible that you recognize it from a movie soundtrack, or…

ETHIC TAKES US BACK TO THOSE BASS FACE DAYS

NEW MUSIC MONDAYS VOL. 019

When I was 19, I worked, for a season, at CITY TV, in Toronto. The building’ security guard was a rather large, black lesbian woman whom, despite her ability to beat the snot out of a grown man, with ease, could not have been more likable and friendly. I’d often chat with her…

KEYS N KRATES WILL SURVIVE WHEN EDM DIES

The mass realization that festival DJs are really not doing much at all has led to the revival of live performance. As the rebirth of live music continues to gain momentum, with it comes an impending doom for most touring DJs and EDM producers. As far as the TRAP genre is concerned, there may be…

DEAD FRIDAYS: FUNKY FUTURE GHETTO BREAKS

I think, as far as musical movements that have got me most excited,  FUTURE JUNGLE might be moving over for this recent trend of combining upfront URBAN sounds with OLDSCHOOL BREAKS.
