I’d forgotten about this…I took it a while ago while I was shopping downtown. I’m a sucker for a good DJ; hey, they’re hard to find.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to work with my Lova and people watch from the DJ booth. It’s great fun and there’s always something interesting to see when you have girls in too-tight dresses and alcohol involved. Listening-in on requests from people is also an interesting past time; I won’t go into details in this post, but there is an etiquette to making requests, and most do not follow it.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard a girl come up and ask “Umm, when are you going to play something that’s on the radio?” (This usually during a remix of a popular radio tune.) Song selection aside, this has to be one of the lamest things I’ve ever heard. Sweetie, there’s more to life than what you see on TV and what you hear on the radio. To be fair, I admit that I do love a good cheesy pop song, but to limit yourself only to things that are easily accessible is a crime.
So on that note, if you’re looking for something deeper than radio playlists of the same 20 songs, I present to you the club DJ’s answer back to all of the BS requests for Ke$ha and Miley Cyrus: Bass-heavy club music at its best, this is what dance music is.

Here’s a new mix for your listening pleasure. I’ve always been a fan of disco music, and I shared my embarrassing story of calling in song requests on Saturday nights before; but now there’s a whole new class, and even if I had to call-in there’d be no need to be ashamed. This mix showcases the best in modern disco music…all of the best parts of classic disco without the cheesiness. Each of the tracks are great, but you MUST check out the ones by Empire of the Sun, Flight Facilities (my fave!), and 40 Thieves.

Don’t ask where he gets his titles from…
This week’s mix is a progressive collection of nu disco/alternative/dance. I love the way it starts and ends on a mellow note, but be warned that everything in between will have you wishing it was Saturday night. (And yes, I am biased.)
Note: If you’re listening at work you may want to use your headphones as these songs are not edited.
A new quick-mix from my sweetie. Listen while unwinding after work over a glass of wine or preparing dinner. Or, better yet, when was the last time you had music playing softly while you had dinner? Our background default used to be the TV, but lately some of my favorite meals have had a soundtrack to them.
