“Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin’ world go ’round”

Three of these tracks have previously appeared in the Kiss The Future series, making Queen the artist who has appeared the most. I was really surprised once I realized that because I’d have assumed it was New Order, The Knife, Depeche Mode, or anyone else!

New York At Last is essentially a new Queen track in the same way that Free As A Bird was a new Beatles track. It started as one of Freddie’s demos, and by carefully sampling and layering guitar, bass, and drum parts from other Queen songs then merging the results with an electro synth line reminiscent of Radio Ga Ga (it is, in fact, the synth line from the remix of Love Kills which follows it) Smash made it made something good enough that it could have been a single.

In Yr Underwear (Jesper Dahlback Edit) by Fox n’ Wolf

“He got a rhinestone rocketship and disco balls, leaves glitter on the sitter when duty calls…”

With one exception all the songs in this mix were suggested to me at different times by DJ Amphiguous (pictured above), a friend who lives in Vancouver. He did a club night named Uncanny, and I had the privilege recently of DJing alongside him in San Francisco.

Bar Star has become one of my favorite tracks of the past few months, as has Roman Pushkin’s remix of Fat Bottomed Girls.

Zerox Machine is a cover of Adam And The Ants’ third single.

The one track that wasn’t suggested by him is PPP by Trippple Nippples, which came from Mark in Portland. That was a sweet MySpace discovery and fits right in with the rest of the set. Japanese dance music always makes me happy, especially when sung in Engrish.
