Some artists DJ using vinyl, some artists prefer to DJ with CDs and in recent times many DJs have converted to the electronic age, using laptops and mini controllers, including ourselves.
However, Nile Rodgers showed in Manchester last night he can DJ with a different instrument, quite unique in his talent with his guitar! Now I know we’re at the end of May and the temperatures are rising in the UK in anticipation of summer, but the heat in the Ritz last night was stifling.

Some classic Salsoul Disco from Class Action. This mix is taken from the John Morales – M and M Mixes, which is a collection of Disco and Soul which have been produced and sometimes remixed by the genius that is John Morales!

DFA duo Holy Ghost! are gearing up to release a new album called Dynamics, their first since 2011’s self-titled debut. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but it does have a lead single, “Dumb Disco Ideas”. Here’s the video, directed by Ben Fries, in which a full band’s worth of instruments take on a life of their own on a New York City rooftop.
Yesterday, DFA Tweeted, “dumb disco idea #1 – release brand new single called “dumb disco ideas” day after world gets new daft punk stream.”
A bit of a follow up from our earlier post about Gramme last month. After picking up the album we came across another Disco Led stomper from the band ‘ Laugh Out Loud’! Great video to accompany a deeper disco song. If you have not checked anything out by the band as yet be sure to pick up your copy of Fascination now as you will not be disappointed one bit.
Another Free MP3 today and this time it is a Re-Work of the Blondie classic ‘Heart of Glass’. The Re-work comes from Oliver & Thee Mike B and was released on their soundcloud last week when they reached 10,000 Followers! It uses the elements of the original track and as soon as that Bass Riff drops you know you are in for a real treat. There is a slow build throughout the song, but they have really focused on using that bass riff to be the main focal point of the Re-work! Be sure to snap up the Free Download whilst you can.
