Boogie

GUYS. it’s the first of november! the beginning of the end of the year (almost). it’s also that weird and wonderful month when men grow moustaches (some shouldn’t, harrison ford for example.) to celebrate i decided to put together an hour long playlist to get your groove on to, or at least get you in the mood for cutting some shapes. a mix of old & new disco, funk, soul and remixed flavours. look out for another one later, two mixes a month is more special than one.

this is possibly my favourite mix so far, it makes me soooo happy. especially that marvin gaye remix.

boogie. download it here. playlist:

  1. jackson 5 – i want you back (z-trip remix)
  2. marvin gaye – too busy (black tiger sex machine refix)
  3. janelle monáe feat. big boi – tightrope (team banzai remix)
  4. james brown – i feel good (ali disco b remix)
  5. edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros – home (party supplies remix)
  6. earth, wind & fire – let’s groove tonight (dj emagen remix)
  7. sharon jones & the dap-kings – keep on looking (kenny dope remix)
  8. aretha franklin – respect (two shoes edit)
  9. mark ronson – bang bang bang (rhythm plate’s banging disco edit)
  10. bee gees – you should be dancing (professor lacroix utility edit)
  11. amy winehouse – rehab (hot chip remix)
  12. diana ross & the supremes – you keep me hangin’ on (team banzai remix)
  13. phoenix – lisztomania (shook remix)

roller disco

i cannot and have never been able to skate. be it on ice or with rollerskates or… rollerblades *cringe* i am so bad at it in fact that i have actually had skating dreams – much like normal people might have flying dreams. i’ve had flying dreams too, sure, but the skating dreams are far more exciting. whizzing past people in the street, using it as my main form of transport – these are all things i would love to be able to do.

right now i’m going through a bit of a disco obsession (more on that later) and nothing goes with disco quite like rollerskating. MAN ALIVE. check out swayze in this little number…

right? right. i would have liked to see john travolta partaking in a bit of roller action. other celebs did too though, check out dustin hoffman, andy warhol and cher below

as well as hef rolling with one of his ladies (nice denim suit)

it was a big enough deal that there was a magazine dedicated to it. bring back roller disco.
