Let the music (use you)

When Elizabeth and I bought our flat late last year one of the improvements on the places we’d been living in before was having a third bedroom, one that could be “Tad’s music room”. Suddenly I was off buying some good quality monitor speakers and hooking the mixer up to my computer. From that inspiration I produced this disco mix just before Xmas.
I get very impatient with recording mixes so mine (like this one) are almost invariably done in one take after I have worked out which records to play. As a result there are always little glitches, but I think that if you want it to be perfect you may as well get a computer to do it for you. But then that’s not DJing anymore.
This mix represents some of the sounds I was playing alongside Greg Brooks when we did the Cosmic Disco night earlier this year. There is a mixture of re-edits and originals, with quite a few favourites thrown in for good measure.
New York Citi Peech Boys – Life Is Something Special (Special Edition)
Inner Life – I’m Caught Up (In A One Night Love Affair) (Original 12″ Mix)
Gino Soccio – Try It Out
Patrice Rushen – Number One
Love De Luxe – Here Comes That Sound
Hot Chocolate – Cadillac (The Revenge Rework)
The Popular People’s Front – I Love Only You
Atlantic Conveyor – We Are
Chic – I Want Your Love (Tangoterje’s Hello Kenny Edit)
Jimmy Ross – First True Love Affair (Eddie Tour Edit)
Sinnamon – Thanks To You (Instrumental)
Geraldine Hunt – Can’t Fake The Feeling (Long Version)
Dan Hartman – Vertigo / Relight My Fire
Montana – Esto Parese Amor (Club Mix)
Talking Heads – I Zimbra (Peter Black Remix)
The Beat Broker – Warriors (In Space)

  1. Nothing like a little bit of Hot Chocolate to get things going is there?
