Happy flipping Friday you lovely lot!
We’re currently in day two of Frankie’s Birthday parade (it lasts Thursday to Sunday, so we’ve been told) and tonight we’ll all be eating pizza, drinking cider and to quote the birthday girl herself “ending up at The Plough for some twerking” to celebrate. So in light of this we need some seriously chair dance worthy tracks to get us warmed up.
Here’s what’s got us winding in our swivel chairs this afternoon – enjoy!
This week Meg’s been chair dancing to…
It’s been an exceptionally good week for music, so this week’s chair dancer has taken quite some consideration! But if ever something was going to swing it for me, it’s a Bristol angle, and this amazing remix has just that.
GotSome are a brilliant pair of Brizzle boys who I really hope are going to be massive. They’re already well established in the Bristol bass music scene, but I have everything crossed that this particular remix of Storm Queen’s hugely successful Look Right Through (and a little backing from the Queen of Dance, Annie Mac) will push them to the heady heights of house super stardom, because they deserve it.
In true Bristol style this remix takes a squeaky clean house track and makes it deep, dirty and bassy – just the way we like it, innit me babbers?!
This week Cloe’s been chair dancing to…
Marry the night by Lady Gaga!
So I have chosen this pop classic this week for two reasons… There has been rather large amount of hype around Lady Gaga’s new album so I couldn’t resist going back a little bit and getting my groove on to one of my favourite songs of hers.
The next reason is it’s been Lady Franks birthday this week! Two random reasons you may think – but you would be wrong! They are both ladies, to start with and our Lady Franks does have the Gaga’s about her! She can basically wear bloody anything and make it look amazing, she is certainly strong and can be opinionated, and she likes to get her groove on! So this is why this week I have chosen this dancey toe tapping pop number!
This week Frankie’s been chair dancing to…
Ah blush, I love four day long birthdays and all the wonderful attention I’ve been getting! I would marry the night too, if only she would have me, the floozy .
This week I have been crushing hard on all the Donna Summer remixes that have been floating about to celebrate the wonderful woman on the new album “Love to Love you Donna”. Literally all the big guns have come out on this album with remixes from: Hot Chip, Chromeo, Afrojack, Frankie Knuckles, Boys Noize, the original mastermind behind of Love to Love you Baby, Giorgio Moroder and more….But it’s a remix of Bad Girls by the wonderful Gigamesh that’s been rolling around my head for days. It’s still disco to the max but Gigamesh has brought it right up to date and made it funky as funk! I love it so much I’ve been mentally planning a new mix I’m going to call “Bad Girls Love Disco” I’ll try and get it sorted for next week. Until then, enjoy this little beauty and have a wonderful weekend.
