Marquis of Lorne -- Smooth Fridays

Thanks everyone who came down to the Rock N Bowl day on Sunday. It was a hoot, no doubt. Your next chance to catch me spinning the smooth sounds of the 70s is this Friday. Hooray! And every Friday after that until the owners of the pub get sick of me and kick me out.

That could be sooner than you think. This is what I'll be playing.

Fantastic Man -- From Start To Finish

Sometimes you need to get deep. This should help you. A smashing little number that builds into something truly, deeply, satisfyingly solid. It comes out of the Melbourne Deepcast stable and shows, once again, why we're probably the best city in the world right now for disco. Probably.

Moon Boots -- Sugar

Moon Boots is one well strutting disco dude from Stateside. He dropped this little number a few months ago but it's just starting to get some traction right about now. Did Janet Jackson ever sound so good?

Justin Winks (Casio Social Club) - Nu Disco Treats Vol. 3_DJ Mixtape

Justin Winks has a mixtape for us. He's Casio Social Club and he's a DJ with the love for the Nu Disco treats. And there are plenty of treats to savour in this mix of the latest disco tunes. You've no doubt heard many of these tracks lately. The Little Boots remix is everywhere, but ain't it nice to hear Joey Negro workin' it again? You'll love that track. For me, the standout is the cheesy "Crush" getting a working over by Justin. Is it just my memory, or did Nick Carter's little brother, Aaron, do a version of this song a million years ago when The Backstreet Boys was a thing? God, my mouth feels dirty just saying all of that.

Plug it in and off we go!

1. Casio Social Club - Justin Illusion [Mullet Records]
2. Fishing Vest - First Standard [Mullet Records]
3. Anna Lunoe & Flume - I Met You [Future Classic]
4. Nine Lives - Played in the Shade [Vendition]
5. Del Strange - We Rock (Original Mix) [FAR]
6. Tad Wily - Garage Love (Spirit Catcher's Operator Mix) [Mullet Records]
7. Los Amigos & Dimitri From Paris - Glad To Know You [Gomma]
8. Lady Aya - Shake Your Body (Joey Negro Extended Disco Mix) [Z Records]
9. Casio Social Club - Crush (Original Maxi Length Version) [Mullet Records]
10. Little Boots - Headphones (Dimitri From Paris Dub) [679 Recordings]
11. Tad Wily - Garage Love (Casio Social Club 'Time After Time' Remix) [Mullet Records]
12. Sugardaddy - How Long (Tensnake Late Night Dub) [Night Time Stories]

Dunkan Disco -- Belice

You can count on Dunkan Disco to bring the smooth back to the dance floor. Here's his latest cut, and it has that sultry feel that should be just the thing for those Sunday arvo sets when things have got a bit messy the night before.

It takes The Gap Band's classic 1980 R&B jam "Yearning For Your Love"and gives it enough to make it almost a Yacht Rock Disco bounce. Get in on that free download action.

Rock N Bowl -- Thornbury Bowls Club -- 28 October

Rock N Bowl is a great day out. It's been running for a couple of years now and always brings the fun. Cheap beers, live bands, barefoot bowling, cheap beers, a BBQ, cheap beers, and I'll be playing. What more could you want? Did I mention the cheap beers?

I'll be spinning between the bands and then from 7pm to late. They'll be plenty of Yacht Rock and AOR Disco classics and some remixes that you've been downloading from this blog. Step to it!

Tracy Chapman - Fast Car (Mattias Polanco Edit)

Groove Armada -- Live @ Space, Ibiza

So, festival season in Europe is coming to a close which means pretty soon festival season in Australia will be starting up. Yay! Here's another set, this time the closing party for Space in Ibiza. A great line-up with some big names. Groove Armada are in the house this time. Look for some deep house, some classic old-skool GA tunes, and Technotronic!

Thursday, 4 October 2012

I don't know what the Mint Festival is, but I do know that this banging set from Seth Troxler would have kept me on the dance floor all night. It moves from disco, to deeeeeeeeeep really smoothly.

Soggy Disco Biscuit -- Volume 19

First of the month and it's podcast time! Yeah I'm really happy with this month's mixtape. Have you found it on iTunes yet? No?! Well, click here, my little disco friend and sign right up to the disco train. I got a lot of fun for you so, all aboard.

The sad truth is that as I upload a new episode, I have to delete an old one. And while that was fine for the first few crappy episodes, the next one to go is Volume 7 and it's one of my favourites. Make sure you grab it, eh?

But onto Volume 19. It starts out with some French Beatz. I hope you got a chance to have a listen to the little mixtape I made for the French blog French Beats. I've taken it down now, but this first song was the one I really liked the best out of the whole of their Summer Pack. From there, I've dropped some Metronomy, because I think that band is ace and this remix is kinda cool, too. Then, some jazzy, squelchy disco and a couple of cracking nu-disco belters that you'll be hearing from me all summer. Into some remixes of some old hip-hop, a classic from the early 90s in David Mancuso's Loft, and an AOR Disco tune to finish for all my new AOR Disco Headz.

Get it on!


"Promise Your Love" -- Fraicheur
"Tens And Tens (Theatre Of Delays Remix)" -- Metronomy
"Ostinato Bass" -- T2MM
"Beverly Thrills" -- Edit Murphy
"Kassette" -- Moullinex
"Let The Beat Hit 'Em (GM's 321 edit) -- Lisa Lisa
"Ice Ice Arnie (cool party) -- Luke Million
"Sat A Dub (Groove Motion's re-edit) -- De La Soul
