The Big Boi Keys

Merry Christmas Eve, boys and girls. Do I ever have an early present for you. An anonymous DJ called Wick-It is responsible for a mashup mixtape of Big Boi's LP Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty and the Black Keys' Brothers. It's name: The Brothers of Chico Dusty. And we have it here for you.

Voulez vous danser avec moi?

That's "Will you dance with me?" in French. Not only is it a good question to ask regarding this mix I'm about to plug, but it's also incidentally the worst pick up line I've ever used on a poor French girl last week. Suffice it to say, it didn't work. But, this mix from Justin Faust definitely does.

Justin Faust "I Feel Usefool" Minimix by Justin Faust

Ever wonder what a club in Paris would be like? Ouila! Justin cooked up this dance-inducer for the famed club Chez Moune, where, according to the New York Times, this "former lesbian cabaret...is now a popular hangout for the city’s polysexual fashionistas."

Sounds like my kind of place.



Our Spanish-speaking friends are making us bump and grind all over again. All-time favorite Isa GT is the hot voice on the new(ish) track "Alerta" by Dutch Rhythm Combo. You can enjoy remixes of their collabo below.

It's Time for the Perculator

Actually, it's time for us to showcase our favorite perennial DJ Gil-D-Beat. Gil dropped a new disco mix about a week ago and we have been shamefully slow about loading it up. But, everything is for a reason. We recently discovered an 70s-era Detroit dance show that complements Gil's newest mix to a T.

Here's the mix.

Here's the moves.

We suggest muting the YouTube video and jamming along to Gil's time-to-dance.


Older, but not wiser

Hi, kids. It's my birthday. I am now 24. This is depressing. But, you know what they say: when you get older, you get wiser. Here's what I learned today:

1) Old people fucking love to do crosswords. This joy is magnified x10 while on public transportation. I can't figure this out. Crosswords are fun. To a point. I can get through maybe 25% of a crossword before my mind starts to wander. I've figured it out though. Old people love crosswords because: 1) They have too much time on their hands; 2) They can afford to have a daily newspaper (with crossword) delivered to them; 3) Crosswords are tailored to old people. (ex. 50 Down. "She's A Lady" Composer. We all know the answer is Tom Jones, but only old people really lived through it.)

2) Gmail addresses are really indicative of your personality. If you use your.name@gmail.com, you are like everybody fucking else. If you use your first initial + last name (ex. iname@gmail.com), chances are you are a man or a lesbian. If you have something other than your name as your gmail address, what is your problem? It's solely for resume purposes! Duh!

3) She Rex is a dance party that is supposed to play rock 'n roll by ladies for ladies. This is a good idea in theory. It is crap in execution. However, I am still going to celebrate my birthday there this Friday. You know why? There is no other option. But, I will request the following songs:

Aaliyah - Are You That Somebody?

Fever Ray - Seven (The Twelves Remix)

Khia - My Neck, My Back

La Roux - Bulletproof

See, New Gay? It wasn't that hard to play good music by ladies.

Hope to see all my DC readers (maybe 2 of you?) there.


Exploring the Intertubes: Blog Round Up Edition

Harder Blogger Faster

Sometimes / As Vezes

Sometimes Pandora does something right. It gives you a song to listen to that you actually want to hear and/or that fits with your mood. This would happen maybe 33% of the time. It also has all sorts of ads. Actually, I don't know why I even use Pandora.

I know why.

This is why.

An oldie, but goodie. Hope you enjoyed.
