Week 52: I Don’t Wanna Hear About It

I can’t believe I’ve already been doing this for a year! Not sure what the plan is for next week…should I retire this blog? Keep it going? I probably should’ve thought about this earlier…

Anyway, this week’s edit is one of my favorites recently–I’ve played it at almost every gig for the last few months. It’s a melodramatic Quebecois disco track with kicks and toms reminiscent of house music, and a nice synth breakdown at the end. I took out the cheesy parts, fixed the timing, added some dubby effects, and re-EQed the thing to work on today’s dancefloors.

Week 20: The Ultimate Warlord

I’ve always had a soft spot for dystopian post-apocalyptic sci-fi robot disco, and “The Ultimate Warlord” is one of the big tunes in that hyper-specific sub-sub-sub-genre. That having been said, the original has this super-corny robot vocal that can scare away certain dancefloors. So I made an edit that cuts that part out (but leaves the other, only-slightly-less-corny vocal), extends the instrumental bits, and adds a dubby filter breakdown.

Week 17: A Lot More Love

Here’s a French euro-disco tune I’ve always loved, with really great synths, a killer horn section, and some holiday-appropriate lovey-dovey sentiments to boot. The original had embarrassing euro-macho-dude verses and a breakdown that zoomed by way too fast, so I stretched out the bits I like and cut out the bits I don’t. Merry Christmas!
