“I’d like to see you in the sewers of my mind…”

Now this is more like it.

Sometimes a mix just comes together with a real groove, and feels effortless. I love this one. The transition from Losing My Mind to Blow The House Down was always a personal favorite.

Heavenly Bodies was recorded by Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins. Jamie Dee’s Burnin’ Up is built around a sample from Magic’s Wand by Whodini, a 1982 hip hop track that was co-written and produced by Thomas Dolby.

“DROP THAT GHETTOBLASTER!”

Located at 156 W Main Street in downtown Lexington, The Metro was in operation from roughly 1990 to 1993. It came third in the succession of gay-owned bars (Cafe LMNOP, Great Moments) that appealed to a mixed crowd and played alternative dance music. During regular hours it was a dyke bar but on Friday and Saturday nights from 1:30 to 4:30am DJs Chad and Joe would spin bands like Depeche Mode and New Order for an 18-and-up crowd that was a mixture of gay/straight/male/female/white/black/young/old. During the fall of 1990 it became the first gay club I’d ever set foot in, a full year before I turned 21.

I was already DJing a dance music show on the college radio station which then approached the bar to have me do an industrial music night on Thursdays. I got to know Joe and Chad and within a year I was regularly filling in for them on Saturdays, too.

This is the first of two mixes that capture the sound of those nights. By the tail-end of 1991 James Brown Is Dead came along and suddenly techno wiped away melodic, song-based dance music. I started DJing at The Bar in May of 1992 so my Metro days came to an end.

I hope someone from the old crowd finds this mix; I’ve not seen any of them in 15 years.

As a side note I’d like to add that I had a lot of trouble recording this mix. I had to do it five or six times due to repeated technical difficulties, and it made me laugh because these are the songs I learned how to DJ with, and it was like my skills had reverted to that beginner level all over again. I should have left a great big train wreck right in the middle of it for old time’s sake.
