Slept on vocal house from 1993. Glenn “Sweety G” Toby’s name pops up on several other records from NYC around this time, though this is the best thing I have found from him yet. This was definitely not considered a “classic.” Solid vocal, bassline and hook. Not much more else I can say but I really like this! I’d never seen it before in my hunts until I scooped it at A1.

U Street Music Hall Debut This Friday!

May 04 10 2 Comments »

This has been a long time coming for two reasons. Firstly, it will be my debut at U Street Music Hall, which I have been patiently awaiting for MONTHS. Secondly, my pal and Italians Do It Better chief Mike Simonetti finally gets to play with me here in DC. He and I have been back and forth and trying to schedule a date for a while and we finally get to let it all hang out together on Friday night. We’ve also been working on some tunes together that may or may not get a dancefloor test…

This joint is FREE before 11pm with a facebook RSVP, so make sure you get it in!

Klaus Schulze – “Tango-Saty”

STRICTLY FOR THE FREAKS! This funky, slow-motion chugger came off of krautrock mastermind Klaus Schulze’s 1983 album, “Audentity.”None of the other stuff on this 2xLP album sounds like this. It still retains the forward thinking sound and approach that Schulze was known for (and the primary reason he is worshiped by record nerds everywhere!) It’s always fun to play records like this when the vibe is right!

A funny side note, this came with a very killer collection of records that were given to me by a friend who was cleaning out a sketchy abandon basement apartment deep in the Petworth neighborhood here in DC. Unclear why these were abandoned!
