Killer edit from Yousef, when this WHP mix dropped at the start of the year the online demand was ridiculous for this. It’s now available for free download. You can catch Yousef playing this murrh-fucker of a party in Carlisle over August Bank Holiday weekend as well when Uber go tits in a obscenely small terraced bar.
“Bringing that in this country? Norway!” It’s probably not what the customs officer said to Snoop Dogg when he was once again busted for bringing dope abroad. Surely he could just get a decent dealer wherever he goes, or put it on his rider like Steve Aoki?
Fortunately for Rich Furness John Candy isn’t from Liverpool, otherwise he would have some competition in the stakes of my favourite rotund scouser. One thing he has got over Candy though is the ability to put together off kilter mixes that thread a tapestry of odd and off kilter music; on this ensemble of skittering percussion, off kilter drum patterns and gnarling sonics he’s got segued in Girl Unit, Mele, tempa T and Justin Beiber.
After a rather hectic four day bender in Barcelona last week my serotonin resources have energised just in time for a double header at Salt Dogs this weekend. Both tonight and tomorrow I’ll be manning the ones and twos with the usual disco selection. Let these two videos from Shalamar , well more precisely Jeff Daniels on his todd, get you in the mood – they are easily the greatest dance performance from the 80s (he taught MJ everything). And probably the best alternative when your group ring in sick (lead singer Jody Watley was heavily pregnant at the time).
In fact he was so boss they brought him back again for a second stint a fortnight later!
