17 Days: RIP Prince


..."all I got is 2 cigarettes and this broken heart of mine"...
Still in such shock and in tears over Prince's passing!
Here is one of my all time B-Sides favorites "17 Days" from the brilliant "When Doves Cry" single release. This was the only version I was able to find and it happens to be live and it's quite brilliant. It's one of those songs that will always be amazing in and out of the dance floors.  His genius legacy will live on forever! RIP Beautiful Prince! Enjoy 


  

and here is my current playlist of Prince song's I've been devouring lately in this order:

Sometimes It Snows In April
17 Days
How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore
A Case Of You
If I Was Your Girlfriend
Money Don't Matter 2 Night
Girls & Boys
Pop Life (Fresh Dance Mix)
Lady Cab Driver
Erotic City
I Would Die 4 U (Extended Dance Mix)
The Ladder
The Future
Mountains
I Could Never Take the Place of your Man
Nothing Compares To U

I'm In Love





Fresh out of the oven.  A new remix inspired out of some recent vinyl shopping I did in Greenpoint.  I just discovered The Thing records which has a non curated huge record collection 1 million I hear and every offering is $2.00 regardless and most records are in decent condition. I found some great finds and I will definitely go back soon. Here is a mix out some unidentified white label "album sampler"  which I slowed down and added the magic of Gwen Guthrie on vocals. Hope you enjoy it!

April '16 Mix

Here is the April'16 Mix. Spring is here.  Lately with the spirit of renewal in the air, I have been re-vamping some tracks from 2004-2006 from the Glamjack/CD "vaults".  Minor edits here and there and I'm quite surprised how well they hold up on their own considering those tracks I feel are more amateurish in nature and shall I say,  primitively conceived by mixing separate wave file loops created live from vinyl sources and overlapping them making second and even third generation recordings. All of this was recorded from an exterior microphone before USB technology! The end results created a distinctive Glamjack sound which I feel needed an open and acquired taste at times, lol.  I have been releasing some of those tracks individually on Disco Monk Soundcloud's  if you want further listening of these tracks. Also, there are myriad of other tracks to spice things up with the latest from Pet Shop Boys's brilliant new release of "Super" and an awesome remix I recently discovered while listening to Beats in Space podcast from DJ Paramida from Sharif Laffrey who made an incredible twist from the break of Pet Shop Boys "Always on my mind/In my House" remix. It's great to see young people embracing this sound again. Enjoy!
