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 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.
