Crying on the dancefloor

Here's a tearful mix by Johan Agebjörn, an icy Swedish italo god.
a note from him:
Hi people,
Here is a free Xmas mix for you, called "Crying on the dancefloor", made for Pitchfork. Mostly italo disco but also some other stuff which I thought fit to the title. A lot of inspiration sources for Sally Shapiro.

Where's Sally, that girl!

1. Fake: "Empty Garden"
2. Valerie Dore: "Get Closer"
3. Sally Shapiro: "Skating In The Moonshine"
4. Squash Gang: "I Want An Illusion"
5. Sandra: "Around My Heart"
6. Angie Care: "Your Mind"
7. Nicolas Makelberge: "Dying In Africa"
8. Nixon: "Anorak Christmas"
9. A-ha: "Take On Me"
10. Sally Shapiro: "Jackie Jackie (Dyylan's Subzero Nocturne)"

ghosts have colours

If you know me: you know that I hold Cut Copy close to my heart. From the first time I heard Future on a Kitsuné comp, I was floored! I immediately picked up Bright Like Neon Love and played it like there was no tomorrow.
Hearts on Fire was released earlier but you really didn't get a taste of the new album until So Haunted. I'll admit at first listen, I had already missed the rolling synths and neon beats, but the upcoming single Lights & Music still has me in lurve.

teases the crack in me

wow, last night's performance was incredible to say the least. i got there early to see if i can upgrade my ticket to a better seat with no luck. i ended up seeing my ex right after purchasing a ticket rows from the stage - i thought this show was sold out?!
whatevs, i tagged along until i was politely asked to go to my proper seat during the ratatat set. all of this would have completely embarrassed me but all of that was left at closest metro rail station. even the experience with my ex was sincere, for it IS our love for björk that keeps us grounded.

besides being transfixed by the visible package of ratatat's keyboardist during the opening set, i tried not to shed a tear during "unravel".

i'm still giddy.

8-bit love

my room looks like a fucking mess: empty beer cans, post-its with radon phone numbers, jean cocteau drawings, and sticky napkins decorate almost every surface. the truth is hardly anything is actually "dirty". most of the clothes scattered around just need to be pressed or folded. i have no time for all that once i stumbled across this site.
8-bit love, rolling drums, and vocoder smiles have me trolling around the room and looking for my super nintendo controller.

the "popcorn" remix alone is to die for:

los angeles weather sucks

Okay, so last week was fucking cold enough to rain and have me wishing for a warm lover to cuddle up with at night. Café Society's Somebody To Love swept through my mind while I froze my lonely soul. I say that now until I get fed up with you and throw you off the bed - I'm a bit selfish like that.
Julius Brown's Party is the perfect soundtrack for what I am feeling at the moment. The weather is hot (mostly unpredictable) and my inbox is full of party invitations, advance screenings, factory sales, and an occasional threatening note. All I want to do is DANCE and forgot about it all! Is it shallow to attend the least attractive event just because I "know" the music will be decent?

Sure you've heard The Ultimate Warlord by The Immortals but you must hear this version:
Little Casper and The MX's - The Ultimate Warlord

It's a lot sexier with the female vocals


a new ZOOT WOMAN track for all you Stuart Price bitches, though I don't think he's in the band anymore - yes, it's been that long.

A Love Song

Un Chant d'Amour is French writer Jean Genet's only film, which he directed in 1950. Because of its explicit (though artistically presented) homosexual content, the 26-minute movie was long banned and was also disowned by Genet later in his life.
The plot is set in a French prison, where a prison guard takes voyeuristic pleasure in observing the prisoners perform masturbatory sexual acts. In two adjacent cells, there are an older Algerian-looking man and a handsome convict in his twenties. The older man is in love with the younger one, rubbing himself against the wall and sharing his cigarette smoke with his beloved through a straw.
The prison guard, apparently jealous of the prisoner's relationship, enters the older convict's cell, beats him, and makes him suck on his gun in an unmistakably sexual fashion. However, the inmate drifts off into a fantasy where he and his object of desire roam the countryside. In the final scene, it becomes clear that the guard's power is no match for the intensity of attraction between the prisoners, even though their relationship is not consummated.
Genet does not use sound in his film, forcing the viewer to focus only on closeups of faces, armpits, and semi-erect penises. The film's highly sexualized atmosphere has been recognized as a formative factor for works such as the films of Andy Warhol.

slippery when wet

So I've been sick these last couple of days. I'm feeling better now. But during my bed-ridden naps, I noticed the sky was starting to cry. It hasn't rained in Los Angeles for a very long time and when it does, it seems everyone forgets how to drive. All the oils collecting over the months gives southland motorist a different "feel" of the road. That means more car accidents and longer travel times. Now I know why it took me nearly an hour to get my medicine.


Here is some rolling-drum disco from 1979. It's the flipside of Gimme Some Lovin':

the devil colletcs it

I've known for a while that Thom Yorke's ultimate favorite song is Björk's melodramatic, Unravel, from the "Homogenic" album. It's one of mine as well. There was a time in my life where I couldn't hear this song without shedding a tear - I was some really good drugs and at my thinest. Yet this song doesn't conjure of images of my low-points but brings back warm emotions that were honest and sincere. Mostly directed to my closets friends, R, J, and D.

Radiohead - Unravel (Björk Cover) mp3

Okay, enough of this emotional crap. I'm disco dancing tonight:

Clap, Clap

After the underground success of chola-disco hit, "Wake Up", The latin hi-nrg act Stop dropped three other singles on the Damabi International label. Two of which you can find here. Who does better chola-disco/hr-nrg than someone by the name of Rodriguez?? no one!

This is undeniably Stop, the clapping gives it away:

Make it clap, bitch!

My Love is Sensitive

Seems like a while since I updated this blog. Let's just say that I've been "busy"

Yet, I leave you with this Bobby O production which captures what we all feel sometimes. You know: when he beats you senseless, smokes all your drugs, drinks all your alcohol, fucks your sister, and still you return. Yes, we all get a little "sensitive"

Magic Fly

I think sometimes we take ourselves too seriously, even when we're ill.
Take the common cold: sure, there are countless medications to make you "feel" better but it is your own body putting up the fight.
Voltaire said it best, "The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease." So I take my vitamin c and ehinacea to convince myself I don't need psuedoephedrine.
But don't take this too seriously. We live in an age where escapism IS medicine.

Running Up That Hill

Chromatics have come a long way, changing members, changing sounds but always remaining ever so cool. Their "Night Drive" cd is out now on mail-order after putting their final touches during a lunar eclipse - talk about a sign from the heavens. Ruth's voice is angelic and not to mention she's a tall, beautiful woman. She conjures up images of a modern day Nico (at least to me) for I already have a handful of glam queens begging to differ, though they've yet to hear Chromatics.
Make sure to catch one of their shows and dance dance dance the night away. And if you do attend one of their shows, make sure to grab as much merchandise as possible for you'll regret it later.

Chromatics - Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush Cover) 2007

Thursday, September 13, 2007


one the gayest songs ever! perfect for any sleazy set. the beat goes along with a story of a self-proclaimed "butch" but with a hit of poppers and a "p-lease, miss thang" here and there, it's safe to say she's a big power-bottom. hide your quaaludes and cock rings cause this bitch is on it!

first released in 1983 and according to john hedges, only a 1000 were pressed, and a few hundred of those came up defective. then later resurrected by the boys over at panama records.

which makes me question the attraction of hardcore san francisco queen disco to straight euro deejays. i guess it's the aesthetic.

Guess Who ??

Which "hot" bimbo last night was stumbling around foreign land outside a club in town for a festival, loudly exclaiming her love to everyone clearly delusional to attention she wasn't getting, shortly before dancing on some speakers and totting off to the bathroom to do a few lines of coke, whilst a bouncer kept watch?

Con Limon y Sal

Sure, Environ resurrected it from the grave and put a spin on it but have you heard the vocal? The vocal version stands on it's own but it is the instrumental that causes the place to catch on fire.
Picture this: It's the summer of '79 in Saragossa, Spain. You've just escaped the deadly hotel fire by the skin of your teeth with your Balenciaga scarf still in tact. You stop by a sleazy bar to count how many lives you have left while sipping on your freshly made margarita and this song starts to play. You raise your glass to Pancho Morales and Pino Massara for this sublime moment.

Too bad the song is about a whore.

Massara - Margherita (vocal)

Massara - Margherita (instrumental)

Gravity Will Get You Every Time

Before I even heard of Hard-Fi, Editors, and amidst the Interpol wave, I was keen on this low key Northampton band by the name of, The Departure. With "All Mapped Out", "Be My Enemy", "Arms Around Me", and "Lump In My Throat" videos under their belt, I simply cannot wait what they have in store. Not to mention a visit to the States would be ideal. I've been meaning to see this band.
It's not disco but I can sure dance to it.

Here is a taste of what's to come:
The Departure - Seven Years

I miss this band. So many memories.

Sambassadeur returns with a new luxurious sound

In 2003 and 2004 Sambassadeur lead an explosive Swedish pop movement of home recording artists who surprised our country by not only achieving overnight indie fame, thanks to the MP3 spreading kids, they actually reached the sales charts.

Considering the "Gothenburg-based band played wistful indie pop that put a Sarah Records or C86 ramshackleness on influences like the Velvet Underground and the Go Betweens" (PITCHFORK) this came as a surprise to many. To us, it proved that the average record buyer might not have the worst taste in music after all.

The new single "Subtle changes" showcases brand new sides of Sambassadeur. With help from producer Mattias Glavå (Broder Daniel, Dungen, Håkan Hellström) they've returned with a luxurious sound filled with disco hi-hats, swooping strings and orchestra drums that enhance their deceptive melodies to new heights.

Sambassadeur - Subtle Changes

Let's Talk Jungle

Jungletalk are Adam Pavao and Sarah Ruba, a crowd-pleasing dynamic duo who drops everything from Prince to Toney Allen throughout their delectible sets. This is pop, my friends, unpretentious and deliberate. Jungletalk have been rocking Cassette NYC for the past year and are due to drop an album on Normrex in the near future.

Yeah, they drop some Madonna in there, but whatevs! It gets the peeps moving.
