You can't stop the dancing!

(this post's mp3's are down. email me if you are interested in these songs and maybe I can email them to you)

Dear Mr and Mrs DJ

Alan Braxe & Fred Falke- Rubicon So you're having this totally awesome party, only it's not totally awesome cause nobodies dancing. Everybodies there though- the white belt kids, the broke artists, the b-movie actors, the skateboarding industry, the party kids, the valley girls, the thirty somethings, "photographers", the sexy hairdressers--and the whole thing is fucked because somebody was playing downtempo, or sexy house or something that nobody wants to dance to. This track by France's Alan Braxe & Fred Falke ought to sort everything out. Everybody will be dancing, especially when the shit-hot guitar solo blows up glam rock and disco all at once. Originally released as a single on Virgin/Vulture in March 2004 (that can't be right) I recorded this from Erland Oye's DJ kicks record, although it is also available on CD, the record comes with the songs not mixed together. Both CD and Vinyl versions should be available in your local indie music variety store. (zulu records in vancouver has some copies)

Man With Guitar by Man With Guitar Okay now that the party is in "totally awesome!" mode you can drop this track. It is amazing in the "I refuse to take myself seriously" kind of way. One giant build, the beat drops momentarily, checks itself out, confirms that it is "so hot right now" and then moves along. I got this record in the mail this morning from Forced Exposure. Little (or nothing in my case) is known about this man with guitar, except that it comes from the french Kitsune Midnight Compilation.

Tomorrow: More posts.
