“I love you baby, but face it; she’s Madonna.”

I love the new Erasure single. Vince Clark also shares a co-writing credit on the Freeform Five track which follows it.

I’m almost embarrassed to have Orgy’s name up there, but you have to hear the mix. It’s an embellished chunk of the original Blue Monday and the only surviving part of Orgy’s version is one line of the vocals. Yes, I know it’s nine years old.

Speaking of loops, I’ve finally hit on why it is that I hate 90’s dance music so much: the overuse of looped samples. Loops are lazy. It’s like “Here’s one bar of sampled drums; this will be your rhythm for the entire track.” I’m so happy that artists are going back to programming drum machines or just playing the fuckers live.

“Believe me, doll – we’re all through. There’s no money in the underground.”

Readers Wifes are Chelsea Kelsey and Kim Phaggs, the DJs from infamous London club Duckie. I went to Duckie during a trip to London and had one of my best nights out, ever. The narration on Nostalgia is done by Justin Bond, a.k.a. Kiki of New York drag cabaret act Kiki & Herb.

I got Bossy from Mark in Portland.

The lead vocal on Strange Sounds is an incognito Jake Shears from Scissor Sisters, singing with a pinched nose.
