Donnerstag Disco

Two quotes from last weekend that tickled me:

"Dude, what I love about you is that no matter where we meet you always look like you're at a festival, having fun..."

"You only play world music now, I'm sure it's really good but I really miss the disco..."

Whilst the second quote is quite unforgivable for several reasons, curiously the second promotional mix for my set at Green Meadows festival is, strangely enough, a more disco affair. Some recent and long time disco faves.

I'll be at the Day Release Super Disco Friday Takeover (strangely, on Friday!):

Juicy Fruit

So, there was no Restless Funk radio last night due to election coverage; however what could have been awful actually wasn't, the sun is shining, it's Friday and it almost feels like party-time and party-time always has and always will mean Zouk-Time! Since Skliris & Achard (re-)broke the Zandoli sound last year (though props must also go to Zouk Nostalgie's youtube channel), everyone (and their mum) has been on the bandwagon and I'm no different; here's a small selection of what I've been digging...

For Cleo

Due to more "technical issues", no Restless Funk radio show last night. So I stayed in and played some of my favourite current jams for the cat. Tough crowd.

A.N.D.Y.

Andy's up over at Argyle Radio and there's some firm village favourites featured and put together in his own inimitable style. He's carefully sourced these choices from a selection of readily available compilation CD's available at your local supermarket and from youtube and spotify playlists. No expense has been drawn, other than years of coffee and digital anticonsumerism (illegal downloads), spending hours reconstructing vinyl crackle on a vintage copy of ableton.

meanwhile in madrid

Well, this is rather exciting. Please take the time to check out the music and art collective at www.undermad.com They host musical selections from a wide range of artists across the globe (many of whom are inspirational to me), along with really interesting visual aesthetics and interviews.

The lovely people there asked me to submit something for their 10TRAX series of podcasts, so I put on my best suit and tie, poured an extremely generous glass of Macallan and fell asleep. Months later having forgotten all about this, they pop me on the front page for their 50th edition.

10TRAX asks performers, musicians, producers and dj's to submit 10 songs without any limitations that reflect their home listening as opposed to their creative output. I gave them a quick run down (Spanish and English) of what I chose.
