Happy Birthday HMD!

 The fabulous Horse Meat Disco DJ collective comprised of James Hillard, Jam Stanton, Luke Howard and Severino Panzetta turned 11 yesterday with a bang. I got to witness their magic at Output with Luke Howard manning the turntables while the other celebration took hold at the Eagle in London. It was a nice affair full of disco magic with thumping cosmic madness and some rare rhythm & blues gospel infused disco.  I had an amazing time dancing until the early hours with my dear friend Matthew Reynolds who was visiting from Houston, Texas.  Here is Whirpool Productions "From Disco to Disco" which sums up the experience. Enjoy and congratulations HMD for eleven years of disco bliss!

a player, a sunshine and Greta

Here is a new mix of some of my recent favorites of now, '80s synth and post punk, '80's Chicago House, Disco, '60's and some latin rarities. It includes wide eclectic mix of some recent vinyl acquisitions as previously promised on a previous posting. Oh and there are a lot of acapellas and spoken word for added effects by the likes of Greta Garbo, Rockers Revenge and Instant Funk. Enjoy!
