Today is a gorgeous day and I'm not working--so I'm writing instead. Maybe I should be outside enjoying the weather. On November 30, this Friday night, I will be attending the Gemini Disco party from 10pm to 5am at the Mezzanine in San Francisco. The night will include several DJs and Escort, an 18-piece disco band from Brooklyn.
Turbo Crystal - French Girl (Escort Remix)
In preparation for Friday night, I am listening to one of my favorite DJs, Todd Terje of Norway. His unique "edits" typically are modern enough to take to any of today's dance floors, and yet he doesn't fool with the tracks so much that they are a complete reworking, nor are they too heavy. We are still left with the disco-feel that we started with and it's generally excellent.
Chic - I Want your Love (Todd Terje edit)
Bee Gees - You Should be Dancing (Todd Terje edit)
I'll also be exercising to this fantastic music video of Vanessa's 1982 single "Upside Down."
