Yes! Last night was a success, well banging, and Erol really didn’t disappoint: it was all downtempo at first, kind of spacey and smoothing, and then he dropped the Space Bass by Slick and the tempo went up a bit and it was like disco euphoria or something.
LOVE THAT SHIT.
He played this track that I didn’t expect at all, and I didn’t use to like it very much but then to hear it played loud like this I though woah!
Happy Easter everyone! I’m off to Amsterdam with the bf to celebrate one year of happy mornings, evenings, sunsets, sunrises, dinners, breakfasts: all the time.
Despite the hangover I’m in a good mood today so here you are: more Patric Cowley and a bunch of love vibes with this banging remix of one of my favourite classics, which sounds so damn appropriate.
Tonight, Erol Alkan is putting on his Disco3000 outfit and coming to Paris to play some bangers. No need to say that I’m well excited.
Let’s bring out the Bombay Sapphire and listen to his hottmix whilst getting ready.
Oh yes I have been away for like what, 9 days. But these have been busy times, I’ve had to run to several job interviews, book trips away with the lover, start the renovation work on my “pad by the sea”, do lots of other boring this that require lots of attention.
Me and A.C went to Nadège Winter’s Brunch Bazaar (it was afterwards that we took the pics) last week and I thought it was a bit of joke, it was like the whole place was buzzing but at the same time nothing was really happening, except that people were staring at each other and checking out what they were wearing. We left after about 5 minutes because it was just too ridiculous and we didn’t have a baby to make us look cool or something.
Yesterday, my little brother turned 20 and that’s a better cause for celebration right; too be young and have a whole decade ahead of you to mess up your life a bit.
Ah now onto spring, then summer, bring on the annual bikini diet!
My dad is drummer, did you know that?
Not sure if it’s got anything to do with the fact that I love a good drums part in a song. It can be live or from a computer I think it can just take any song from boring to banging.
Listen to these, well BANGING. I know I posted the Mu track before but I just couldn’t resist.
Seriously how sleazy do they look? Would you take bonafied lovin from these dudes?
It was the 18th of June 2004, a Friday.
According to my my livejournal, that day I had gone to work at the v&a shop as usual but I had been upset about my flatmate Anthony moving back to Canada.
So yeah on Fridays at the time it was all about getting ready for Our Disco at Plastic People in the evenings. (Just like before Mondays had been all about getting ready for Trash).
Chromeo and Optimo were playing that night so of course I went and I remember I didn’t really like Chromeo at all, but PMD was so excited about them and I just didn’t understand why.
Still according to livejournal, this is what I wrote at 4.27 am as I came home from the club:
“I just came back from Our Disco and my feet dont even hurt because i found the best 5 pounds heels at Gemini shoes on kingsland high street.I got pretty good kissing tonight. On the other hand,i feel that my dancing skills are going downhill, sometimes i think i’ve lost all coordination.
Now i’m going to go to bed with my new ‘goo’ t-shirt. I want a 7″ that costs $120,it this crazy?
Late night/early morning posts shouldnt be allowed really.”
Lol at my life. Anyway I’ve digressed a lot.
All this to say…well throughout the years I’ve actually grown to like Chromeo, and Dave P is a bit sexy isn’t he? This is the thing, I like them, but I’m always a bit unsure about them and when I listen to their records I feel a little bit sick at the time.
And thinking about it, Dave P reminds me of the annoying and sleazy guy in the nightclub that comes to sit next to you and chats you up all night with cheesy lines.
I came upon this record a bit out of the blue when it was recommended to me by my favourite ebay seller (a coldwave, synth, disco genius!) and since then I’ve loved it, it’s so crazy and stupid but so good at the same time. Enjoy.
Today I went to work and was well bored as usual, so I put on my ipod and listened to some banging tunes.
At some point this In Flagranti track came on and I was like, omg I haven’t heard this in a while, it is so so massive.
Anyway, you had a good xmas? I had some lovely presents, more on this soon.
