I’m a little nervous after listening to Gant and Tre’s previous episodes. I will try and keep up with them. Tune in or find it in the archive on THEFACERADIO.COM
Yes She Did
So far I really love everything I’ve heard. It’s a smart mix of all kinds of dance music.You listen. You like. Next week Billy make guest appearance. Make fun.
Either you remember it and love it or you are just really impressed by a synth pan-flute. Either way, Italo says summer to me….and popsicles. It definately says popsicles…being served on the dancefloor…that’s another post entirely.
“I think I’ll dye my hair blue” oops, just did
from your host, PJ;
At the height of midsummer’s eve we come together to feast on the delights of our Earth’s sweet fecundity . The full strawberry moon announces the waxing glory of the season of light and is the perfect medicine to the chaos of this past solar eclipse. New York is under the patronage of Mercury, the god of crossroads and communication, and the the retrograde hits us with a particular intensity. Mercury stations direct just two days before the full moon giving our feast a delicious forward momentum. Midsummer historically is a celebration of bonfires, mirth, and magic, fittingly we shall provide you with all three. Our full strawberry moon is a ritual of abundance, generosity, and joy through community. Please join us for this most auspicious night. Bring a friend, dress ethereally!
Wednesday’s Rose is Laurens. Cosmic Disco; it’s as if the whole universe is wearing leather pants and keeping it’s I.D. and a little cash in the pocket under it’s hat. The spirits of the leathermen have flown but their EP’s and extended versions remain. R.I.P. dancers, revelers, vanguards, clones.
I used this track in a tech mix a couple months ago. I had to do a little slice and dice on it, but the lyrics were just so sick, I had to have it. Imagine lyrics? That rhyme? Wow. The classic breathy, bratty, British vocal is a new wave feeling. Me gusto. I don’t care for the word, “bitch” though…I mean when referring to anything other than all my friends, That got trimmed in my edit but I feel like this track is a little something different than the five-thousand tracks per month that Beatport et al make available. HA! Sadly, that’s true. It’s like freshkills on these dance track sites. Piles of garbage as big as a virtual pyramid at Giza. Something’s gotta give. If you hear something halfway decent, do a bitch a favor and let him know. Okay, bitch? Bitch, no.
Loving this insanity. Desmond got the looks…clock it… even Good Beat! This makes me happy. There is hope after all.
10, 10, 10, 10, 9 (so shady), 10 10 – This category is shut down – Give it to the child. Give the child the trophy. This is the future, people. ¡FUTURA!
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!!!
Edie Sedgewick introduces the mix from Dr. Roberts’ office. Later, Ruth Buzzi gets a shout out. In between it’s techy feelings with swish and many swooshes.
No Earth, No Wind…
SO MUCH LOVE
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.
