Over the years, I’ve amassed a huge collection of cheesy love songs and put together a small playlist of some of my favorites Boogie WahWahWah tracks. Some are insanely beautiful and evoke the sadness that love can bring, while others are incredibly hilarious. Lyrics like, “Do I have to track …

Forgotten Treasure: Belle Epoque “Sorry” (1977)

A good friend of mine has a true and soulful heart despite her black only wardrobe, monstrous spiked platform heels and red lipstick. She is the only girl I know who will play me Ahmad Jamal over a candle lit dinner, without my persuasion. The girl knows the way to …

Future Classic: Le Loup “I Keep Secrets”

It has become very apparent to me that a lot of contemporary music I hear comes from somewhere else. Music is re-used, rep-appropriated, sampled, and tweaked and the result is something slightly different and new. Unless you care to know the source, or can recognize it, the music goes masked …

My long time homie visiting Montreal for the summer threw a BBQ in July that was equipped with a modest DJ setup and it was an evening packed full of good times. My personal highlights of the night were a combination of eating delicious Hungarian sausages, meeting a hilarious aspiring …

Forgotten Treasure: Mouzon’s Electric Band “Everybody Get Down” (1979)

It seems I used to hear this song all over the place and it got stuck in my brain. Friends played it at work, I’d hear it at afterhours, and on tons of DJ sets and podcasts. Where it came from, I don’t know, I’m just happy it’s popular enough …

Future Classic: Awanto3 “Pregnant”

Stephanie Mills is an artist I genuinely love, and apart from her soulful Boogie Funk style, it is her unique voice that steals my heart away. The first Stephanie Mills track I ever heard was You Can’t Run From My Love (1982 – produced by Mtume) and I adore this …

Forgotten Treasure: East Flatbush Project “Tried By 12″ Remixes (1998)

When I was 17, I used to hangout with a guy named Fat Steve who lived in a suburb of Montreal called Cote-St-Luc. We’d chill in his bedroom at his mom’s house and listen to rap music after school. He had the fattest cat I’d ever seen in my life, …

Future Classic: Lee Webster “Detroit Cheeky Things”

Other than too much commentary about his mighty member and describing himself as a heavenly creature who makes, “vagina music,” there is very little information floating around the interwebs about this German producer. His Resident Advisor biography simply states, “Is this where I’m supposed to tell you how big my …

Forgotten Treasure: Laid Back “Bakerman”

I imagine or like to assume that most people have heard Laid Back’s classic dance floor hit White Horse. But I’m not here to tell you all about chasing that white pony or to discuss the many versions of who sampled what. If you don’t know it, go get familiar …

Forgotten Treasure: Oby Onyioha “Enjoy Your Life” (1981)

One fine morning last spring, bright and early, my friend played this Disco song at full volume across the empty shop we were working in. It was a song I had never heard before but instantly loved and needed to have in my collection. Without even trying, an incredible new …
