“Sorry, I cannot hear you, I’m kinda busy…”

On Sunday I served as the DJ on Virgin America’s float during the San Francisco Pride parade. This was my second year doing so, and it’s always really fun but also a real challenge – the float is bouncing up and down from everyone dancing, plus there’s stop/start forward motion as the float moves along. I compare it to DJing on a trampoline. You can watch the float in motion here (thanks Bob).

I wanted to keep the vibe really up and fun and play songs people would know, but maybe not mixes they’d heard before. This mix was recorded after-the-fact as a sort of souvenir, and was pulled from the original longer set, keeping the songs in their same running order.

“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.
