“Choose your weapon, time to go…a military fashion show”

The fare here is a little edgier than previous mixes. If you grew up listening to EBM, Wax Trax! and Nettwerk Records you should feel right at home.

This mix was inspired by the And One track, which I’m obsessed with right now. I can has eastern European-sounding technopop with a military theme? Is it the Cold War all over again? Hells yeah! Thanks to Kynt for pointing it out, because I hadn’t heard anything by them since their debut single in 1990.

Kloq (a.k.a. Oz Morsley) is currently one of my favorites, and I’m eagerly awaiting his full-length album.

The Heaven 17 single has only been out for a month and it went down a storm when I DJed at Basket in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago.

Glamorous (The Scene Kings Electro Remix) by Fergie

This mix was commissioned by my friend DJ Dann Edmond while he was working for Energy 92.7, San Francisco’s late, great dance music station, which was on the air from October 2004 to September 2009. It was split into two parts to allow for a commercial break in the middle, and the tracks alternate between songs from their heavy rotation playlist during May 2007 and my own choices.

This is just a bit more commercial that what I was spinning at the time, but I’m very happy with the way it turned out. I’m not sure of the exact date it aired.

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.
