Here is are some re-edited takes put together over some proto house beats. All the versions of Go Bang are one of my most fabulously weird dance song ever. There is so much texture and beautiful layers just like the art work here. Conceived by Arthur Russell under the Dinosaur L alias Go Bang became a Loft classic. The story goes that when Russell went up to Mancuso to play it. At first it cleared the dance floor. He then proceeded to play it again an hour later and every hour and by midnight the whole dance floor went nuts specially during the Lola Blank's part ....Bang go-bang-bang go-bang-go, Go bang bang bang go-bang it back” So here is my homage to it. Totally broken down taking only the Julius Eastman section with Lola Blanks. I'm pretty happy with it specially it's rawness and I mean it in a good way. I also remixed Francois K epic treatment with ok results. Enjoy!

....in the nightlife aha...that's where I want to be... sings Kim English on this mid '90's House Classic in collaboration with Masters At Work. It has been reworked a bit but the overall spirit of the song remains the same. Enjoy

I've always loved this B-Side ode to teen negativity and cynicism by Pet Shop Boys! It was revamped nicely by Moby in 2003 with his electro mix and featured on their Pop Art Greatest Hits. This one gets the Pacific Coliseum treatment which is a nice new chill techno sound I'm liking. Also this mix features some spoken word the the great Ghandi and some Vedic chanting by Ravi Shankar and George Harrison. Yes, a lot going on here. Btw, play it loud, for some reason I can't get the sound to go up. Enjoy!

I'm loving the new Tracey Thorn new "Record". Specially "Dance Floor" where she is serving us some nostalgia for the dance floors evoking peak time dancing to Bowie's "Golden Years", Chic's "Good Times", Evelyn Champange King's "Shame" and Shannon's epic dance floor shaker "Let The Music Play". Naturally I remixed adding Let The Music Play for full effect. Enjoy!

Inspired by David Mancuso's Loft parties here is a take on one of the most densely sweet breaks on the dance floor ever. "City Country City" by War. The first remix is a very housified take on it and the other one is a longer more meditative and reflective take. Enjoy!
