I wrote a beautiful post and stupid offline client ate it! … it was like “beep beep beeep beep beep” and I was like…. “uhn?”
It was a good post.
Anyways, trying the online interface this time.
After 21 years away from the scene, a friend of mine ask for my services for a party next friday. Granted, it’s not radio or club, but it’s nice to do these things again 🙂
I’m not going to attempt anything like a live performance, partly because I have exactly zero equipment and partly because I’m kinda rusty. So I decided to prepare a series of sets, burn them to some CDs and feed them to the player at the party place (Solstice Cafe’)
I’m leaning towards three themed sets. The 1st one is a 80s new wave progressively mutating toward 2000s remixes of the same songs. Interesting concept 🙂
- New Gold Dream – Simple Minds
- From the Edge of a Deep Blue Sea – The Cure
- I Love a Man in Uniform – Gang of Four
- Heart Like a Wheel (Extended Mix) – Human League
- Blue Monday (Live @ Electronic Ecstasy 1993) – New Order
- Bizarre Love Triangle 95 – New Order
- Promised You a Miracle – Simple Minds
- New Years Day – U2
- New Years Dub – U2 vs Musique
- Cars (Spahn Ranch Mix) – Gary Numan
- Tell Me When (Utah Saints Mix) – Human League
- See-Saw – Monaco
- You Should Be Dancing (Bee Gees Cover) – Monaco
- Crystal (Porno Club Mix) – New Order
- A Question of Faith (Anubian Nights Mix) – Gary Numan
A preview of this set can be found here (128bps wma format).
I have yet to decide about the other two sets, but I’m probably going for a trip-hop one (Massive Attack, Portishead, etc) and a hi-nrg one. No idea what to put in this one…
Comment, you slackers! *whipcrack*
