Week 37: Contort Yourself

This is one of my fave records, but I don’t play it as much as I should because it’s a fucking nightmare to mix (the tempo drifts all over the place, none of the drum breaks are a sensible number of bars, etc.). So I made an edit that is a little more DJ-friendly, beefed up the drums, and dubbed out some bits. If you’re not familiar with this track, it’s a big post-punk / no-wave tune that got reworked by a legendary NYC disco producer. Been playing it a LOT the last couple of weeks and it’s gone over really well…hope it works for you too!

Week 27: Computer Madness

Sometimes I’ll make an edit to fix a flaw in a song; other times a song is absolutely perfect, but it’s been played so much that you need a new perspective on it. This absolute classic Chicago house tune is in the latter category. It was already a weird track, but I made it weirder (maybe too weird?) I’ve seen this slay on the right dancefloor, but it will seriously scare off the normals.
