Mix of the Day: Arni Kristjansson “Boogie Mixx 5”

I’ll never forget the first time I heard the very first Boogie Mixx, I was travelling and stuck in my hotel room in a sketchy part of town just waiting to be picked up the next day. I spent a good 6 hours listening to it back to back (on …

DJ Spiltmilk “Spiltmilk EP”

The good homie, Spiltmilk, dropped his new EP today. All three tracks are straight up dance floor fillers, laced with enough funk to get your body moving uncontrollably. Some may know him from his days DJing and throwing parties in Edmonton , or maybe you know him through his work …

Forgotten Treasure: Paul McCartney & Wings “Good Night Tonight” (1979)

Many years ago, my friend used to run a Post-Punk night at Korova Bar in Montreal during the same time I also did a night there. I’d go to her Post-Punk night and she’d come to my Disco Boogie night and we’d support each other while enjoying slightly different styles …

Forgotten Treasure: The Jammers “Be Mine Tonight” (1982)

Disco is a goldmine for heart melting romantic themed music, and in light of this upcoming lover’s holiday, I thought I would share one of my favorites. It’s not a conventional Valentine’s Day song but I think the message is pretty clear. The opening line is what does it for …

Forgotten Treasure: Steve Harvey “Tonight” (Francois K Remix) (1983)

Last night I came home after a long night of work and found a sweet new MIMS gem dug up by fellow disco homie Devon Eve. During the boogie breakdown I heard a guitar riff (4:02-4:09) that inspired a familiar-yet-mysterious melody in my head. The imaginary blend of both tracks …

Forgotten Treasure: Sumy “Funkin In Your Mind” (1982)

Sumy’s “Funkin In Your Mind” is a great funky throw back tune for all you smooth 80’s boogie lovers. And if you can’t really get on board with this beat, you most certainly can’t argue with the album cover – absolute gold! To consider this a forgotten treasure would be …

Classic Mixes: Paul Nice “Soul on the Grill vol.2″ (2003)

Second instalment of my two favorite 80’s Boogie mixes called Soul on the Grill from NY’s Paul Nice, a name very well known by diggers but still somewhat slept on by the average listener. These Soul on the Grill mixtapes are pretty much the main reason why I’ve never done one …
