Hey, I’m djing in San Francisco next Saturday. My records are less on the acute records post-punk angle and more on the italo hi-nrg gay frisco disco WBMX hot mix five tip, but I may slip in some surprises, some post-punk funk, NDW, new wave classics, hip-house or just Patrick Cowley and Sylvester all night long. I really love the Hot Mix Five, who were the pioneering Chicago DJs in the mid to late 80s. It was that period when house music wan’t a specific sound, but was a term that described all the different kinds of music that Frankie Knuckles and Ron Hardy would play in the clubs and these guys would play on the radio. They’d mix 80s new york electro-funk and club music with European New Wave, Italo-disco and the earliest house and techno coming out of Chicago and Detroit. The connections of those threads pretty much defines most of my favorite dance music, so I’ve always felt a real affinity for their mixes. You can download some of their classic radio shows on Deep House Page. Just do a search for WBMX, or “Mickey Oliver”. I’ll probably post more about them and maybe highlight a specific show in the future.

Anyway, if you’re in the bay area, spread the word and come down. Check out the flier below, which they designed to fit right into this blog, no doubt, and here’s the details:

  2. dude-I’ve got a bunch of things I want to write but since getting back from the above-mentioned Cali trip (great fun, more on that later), I’ve been struggling to fix my computer as my main hard-drive decided to have some sort of fatal directory error.
