“Each and every one of you, make it internal!”

It was not uncommon on The Beat Bash for a pop band like Duran Duran to rub shoulders with a much harder act like The Final Cut (with vocals provided by Chris Connelly, of Revolting Cocks/Ministry/Wax Trax fame – and formerly of Finitribe).

I was asked to mix one of the door prize CDs to be given away at Kavity, an 80’s-themed party in San Francisco. Some of these songs were in my final set – others weren’t. I tried to strike a balance between original mixes of classic tracks, some edgier fare, and new mixes of old favorites. I wanted it to be retro without feeling tired and boring.

Kavity was the 2nd of 3 annual parties: Kandy, Kavity, and SugarKRASH.
