Wendy/Walter Carlos Demonstrates Synthesis – 1970

Trans visibility pioneer Wendy/Walter Carlos was also a vanguard of electronic music production and it’s performance. I’m so glad they cared enough to always teach the audience about this developing and never before heard gebre of music. She kept it classic and mostly recorded classical pieces and Bach was her biggest hit. Their album, Switched On Bach was the highest selling classical record EVER!!! Go trans power!!!

A DEFMIX Tribute Mix Featuring Early ’90s House

This is mix number one. I started it five years ago. Yeah. Thanks and gratitude to Duke Todd who came over and ripped all these tracks from the vinyl. I guess everything is online these days, but you know what?…You have to know what to look for, darling. Uh huh. Odd unsung mixes that are better than the A sides. Duke’s got em all…

These vibes are Sound Factory Bar, Redzone, The Sound Factory, Derek at the door, Frankie or David in the booth and everybody else on the floor…like ON the floor. These are the tracks that somebody stole your coat to ( you’re still pretty sure it was a ‘ganza.) KIDDING. Calm down, kids. Hey!…NO TOUCHING. You will be chopped. These are the tracks that I danced to with Kevin Hertzog before I knew him.

I’m starting mix number two so hopefully that should be uploadable by 2025. ….it’s just that I care sooooo much about the music. I have to be SURE it’s right…but I am pressed up inside LOGIC and learning hard. It’s hard. I spent all day today in headphones….and very little else actually. OH!

Remember dancing??? I wish I could.

Sleaze Volume One by DJ Luke Howard

The good news about Luke Howard’s, “Sleaze” disco mixes? – There are fifteen volumes in this expertly curated disco reference tool. How wonderful to have an encyclopedic knowledge! Personally I am downloading all of them twice and having one set etched onto titanium plates as binary code then stored very deep underground at a classified location. The other set I’ll be mounting in the meditation room of my sacred disco temple where I frequently commune with and keep up with the dearly departed dancers from The Saint. Oh yes, they are still dancing and yes, Gay, there is flag dancing in heaven….it’s not easy because a lot of these guys have those big wings…sort of like the circuit queens’ costumes but…well they’re not actually costume wings…anyway…wings can make a lot of the old flagging moves difficult due to tangling, lost feathers, even broken wings from what I heard during last week’s session. oh yes girl, it’s heaven in heaven but shit still happens…from what I hear…and girl, did you hear who nearly fell through her cloud at last week’s High Tea?…I mean, how high does she need to be? This is heaven…top floor sweetie…GET OFF THE ELEVATOR! Bitch is dead and gone and still nearly killing herself on the dancefloor….she IS sweet though.

HERE IS YOUR SLEAZE DISCO ENCYCLOPEDIA by LUKE HOWARD

I hope I don’t die before I listen to all of them because they only have harps in heaven and I love a harp but I mean…all the time?…forever? No. I need my disco down here on earth.

This One’s For Me

(Introduction)

Ladies and their friends, it is with a great amount of hair product, a heavy handed application of eyeshadows and a lot of love for my girls ( Jeanette Jurado, Ann Curless, and Gioia Bruno ) that we (re) present to you now, from that legendary year for Freestyle -1987, “Let Me Be The One” by Exposé

Who did the make up for this video? Hello? Does anybody out there know who the make up artist was on this important pop video document?

Anybody?

No?

you see, that is exactly the kind of thing that is going to keep me up at night…I have two guesses. Paul Gobel or Kevyn Aucoin…..COULDA BEEN.
