Wez G – Tribute To The Loft by Wez G on Mixcloud The Loft was the location for the first underground dance party (called “Love Saves The Day”) organised by David Mancuso on feb 14th 1970 in New York City. It’s a legendary club where the roots of dance music took hold. This rare Wez G tribute DJ mix explores the Loft’s music and delivers disco beats interspersed with dub, reggae and early house. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.

I was feeling the NuDisco and Indie Dance department of Beatport and always being a bit of a funkmeister I thought I’d spin some disco grooves. Yes, there’s a little cheese within the mix, but also a lot of deep funky beats and grooves, uplifting for the approaching summer…. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Majestique – Renegades feat.

There’s been a bit of a delay in getting this latest mix together as I’ve been busy enhancing the Wez G studio, spending over £4000 on it in the past month… I’ve been learning how to use all the new gadgets and this has sidetracked me from doing DJ mixes… Anyway, back with a bang and this funky mix spans from nice modern disco funk beats through to heavy hitting techno, not forgetting the awesome Justine – Be Sexy from 1992 which I burned from vinyl… I’m hoping my new kit will produce some future bangers for your aural pleasure and I’ll be hard at work, creating… Meanwhile, sink your teeth into ‘Sexy Disco Machines’. 1.

The best time for dance music in my opinion was the early 1990s. It was the heyday of the Rave Scene and dancefloors were packed with sky high dancing bods. The reason I like this period is not that the floors were filled with ecstasy takers, but that the music was at its peak. Dubby loops of bass and funk with a constant circular rhythm in the tents and clubs drove the E’d up crowd into a frenzy. The beats suited the experience of everyone – It was total unity and I think that over the years as the government has killed off the scene with various parliamentary acts (eg Criminal Justice Act 1994) and the total media frenzied attack on ecstasy, claiming it killed you, and the general shift towards commercialism and business, moved the music towards a different direction. Of course, post 1997 – even the dealers were selling ketamine and calling it ecstasy…It’s as if the disco biscuits disappeared overnight. I think on the music front the DJs forgot the buzz which caused the whole vibe and we saw a scattering of genres and pigeonholing and musical snobbery… Well – a couple of decades on from that and digging about on Beatport, I noticed a trend back towards the old style music. Loops of bass hooks and that driving groove have reappeared. It’s that old Italian sound which is so inspiring. Now most of it seems to be categorised as techno or deep house… but it seems the same old stuff that DJs from Laurent Garnier to Easygroove, from Carl Cox to Sasha, all used to bang out. In this mix I’ve cut up a few old tracks with the new flavours plus slipped in a special edit from a live Universe Rave that took place only a few miles away from me in Magor in South Wales in the summer of 1992… In the news recently there have been claims that Ecstasy cures cancer 100% guaranteed so maybe the pop idol generation will be ditching X-Factor, slipping on their shiny shirts and getting back to a diet of disco biscuits… Who knows? As long as good music thrives and Simon Cowell goes bankrupt I don’t mind one little bit. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Vangelis – Blush Response [East West] 2.

Camembert is made from unpasteurised cow’s milk, and is ripened by the moulds Penicillium candida and Penicillium camemberti for at least three weeks. It is produced in small rounds, about 350 grams (.55 lb) in weight, which are then typically wrapped in paper and packaged in thin wooden boxes. When fresh, it is quite crumbly and relatively hard, but characteristically ripens and becomes softer and strongly flavoured as it ages. 1. Thugfucker – Knightrider [Reykjavik Massive Music] 2.
