this on Friday night with my pals Adam Regan and Rhys Adams. I dropped this little beauty, which always gets a good response whenever I play it. It’s funny that when I purchased this record, I was DJ’ing at the Rum Runner playing New Romantic/Electronic music, but I always picked up on certain tracks that got played at the Disco, Funk and Soul night at the club.

Another great interview by
Ashley is an all round nice guy and a talent that is undeniable when it comes to dance/club music from the late 80’s to the present day. I tip my hat to you Mr. Beedle.

Mr. Carthy many times to play at Leftfoot, and they were all as enjoyable as this one….
The home of Scruff’s releases,
Ninja Tune, has always had a place in my heart too.

Disco legend Donna Summer died this morning in Florida at the age of 63. The singer had been battling cancer for some time.
We all know the classics, but I have a particular liking for this collaboration with John Barry, who I’ve mentioned
before on this blog.
