Smoooth Fridays

Come on Summer! You're almost there. Can you feel it? I can. It's been a warm week down here in Melbourne. The week needs to finish with some smoooth sounds, and there's no smoother than Chris Rea.

Get on down to The Marquis of Lorne tonight for some more Yacht Rock and AOR Disco tunes all night long.

Fly Away (poolside edit) -- Laid Back

Here's a nice little edit of Laid Back's tune "Fly Away". Sounds good, doesn't it? Smooth and cruisey. Just the way we like it here.

C+C Music Factory -- Pride

Before "Things That Make You Go Hmmm" and "Everybody Dance Now", these two guys were DJs who used to blow the roof off the back room at the Ministry of Sound while me and my dance buddies would climb onto the podium and give it some.

Little known fact. The woman in the video for "Things That Make You Go Hmmm" was not the singer. She was a model they hired. The singer was really Martha Wash from the Weather Girls, but unfortunately she was considered too ... ahem ... unsuitable for a 90s video.

People were so clueless about dance music back then. I remember hearing on fm radio in 1990 that Black Box was ... wait for it ... a man! Seems the idiot radio DJ thought that there was actually someone singing "Gonna get up, gonna get up, gonna get up" rather than two Italian blokes using a Loleatta Holloway sample on loop. His 'scoop' was that he had worked out that the 'singer of this band' (his words, not mine) had been outed as a fella. His big joke was that the band should now call themselves Black Tool.

Anyway ... here's C + C Music Factory's best song.

Greg Kihn Band - Jeopardy (drunken extended dub-edit by dj supermarkt)

And there you were, thinking that the 80s had gone from being cool, to back to uncool, and then back to cool, only to be uncool again.

And then you hear this remix by DJ Supermarket and you realise that the 80s are cool all over again. Well, they will be for the next 7:32 minutes.

Smoooth Fridays

Hey there yacht rock stars! You know the deal. It's Smoooth Friday which means I'm getting my record case ready for tonight's gig down at the Marquis Of Lorne. Get on that Facebook page and hit "Attend". It was great to see a number of you there last week. Come up and say hello and ask for a tune.

This week, I'll be dropping a bit of Fleetwood Mac on yo asses!

St Germain - Rose Rouge (Leftside Wobble Bump & Hustle Edit)

This has always been a cracker of a track! You remember St Germain. If you stepped into any cafe in the early 2000s, you would have heard this album. Personally, I like "So Flute" more, but this is the second best song on the album.

And good old Leftside Wobble has given it a little tweak here, a little nudge there. Not too much. Nothing heavy-handed. It bumps, it hustles, it grooves. It wants us to get together and put our hands together one time.

Would you play this for a dance floor? I don't know whether mine would have the patience.

Horses - Daryl braithwaite - (DJ Vertigo Remix 2011)

It's Melbourne Cup today, and it's 9:30am so chances are you're drunk already on some crappy Yellowglen bubbly and stuffing smoked salmon into your sweaty gob.

Well, if you're drunk, that gives me an excuse to play the ultimate drunk secretary song. Give your handbag to your boyfriend, take of those ridiculous heels and make a fool of yourself on the dancefloor to this abomination of a song.

Phunktastike -- Feel The Groove

Check out this track! If you want to pick up the energy of your d-floor a little bit, then throw this one down. Great tribal beats to transition into -- nice and easy for us CD-DJs to actually get the beatmatching right. After a few beers, it gets a lot easier.

Some gentle bass lines that build slowly into something deep and solid. "Groove", it says. And why not? Drop in the break, then bring it all back slowly and surely.

It's a deep lesson in how to keep your floor swinging those hips when it's getting late.

Smoooth Fridays

Every Friday is going to be Smoooth Friday in recognition of the Yacht Rock Disco night I'll be running down at The Marquis Of Lorne.

This week, I'm playing Steely Dan. Come up and request a song. Or better yet, hand me a Yacht Rock remix you've made and I'll sling it on.
