I can’t get enough of disco. This morning I walked into work listening to Danny Wang’s Bodytonic Live and thought that it was time to see who were the latest to mix or feature in Bodytonic‘s Live or Mix.
Happiness is a sunny day and having this stream through into my ears and soul is helping me through the working day.
Unfortunately I live in London and can’t go but I will be listening to this sweet mix and dancing along to it.
When Booooooom! featured Bosque and it caught my eye and found a place in my heart. Much of their work is playful but with very simple philosophies. The Good Mood! is probably easily attainable if people believed in Fun For Ever.
One of the biggest pleasures for me is listening to music. My ipod has been on death’s dock for a wee while now but I have a replacement and today when I walked to work and had a full journey of music, I realised how much I missed having this. I also realised that due to my short attention span the only time I truly listened was when I was walking.
Tonight, I will go to bed enveloped by the sweet sounds of Vera’s Take Me To The Bridge. Tomorrow I will wake up to a buen dia, por su puesto.
My recent vinyl purchases have been Elaste’s Space Disco compilation and Osbourne’s single, Airpistol. It was a miserable day, the sky was pouring down and the only way being in town was bearable was by being indoors and choosing a few records and putting on the headphones. Just by closing your eyes, you can be anywhere the music takes you.
I loved Elaste’s Slow Motion Disco and have found it difficult to remove this from my ipod. This new Space Disco version is catchy and filled with some lovely 80s gems. I particularly love Stroer’s “Don’t Stay Till Breakfast”.
There is something sacred about putting a record on. As much as I love the convenience of mp3s and cds, I always think that putting on a record makes you listen to a track properly. Now, this is why I am glad I have Airpistol on vinyl.
This beautiful and melodic track is ever so slightly minimal with dashes of disco-funk. All the ingredients of music to my ears. And one that I’ve been listening to on a loop, even though it means I have to keep walking back to put the needle back on the groove.
I cannot remember where this photo was taken. Somewhere in London, sometime in the late summer last year with my Lomo Colorsplash.
The beauty about film processing is that if you keep your rolls of films for years, you forget what’s on it. Going to collect your photos is a little like getting a present or a surprise. I am waiting to develop my Holga photos. I have about 6 rolls of 16mm film taken from the last few years. It’ll be like a little flashback, and I imagine, would smell like a flowerbombdive. This is milky disco time-travel .
It is so nice to discover something new. It is nice, even when it’s not new. But it is to you, because you’ve only just discovered it (21 years later in this case).
One Friday, at Cocadisco in The Dolphin I found myself in Happy Station. Although to be honest, the DJ actually played Colour My Love. It has been approximately 3 weeks since I discovered Fun Fun and I have since bought a cd to tie me over until I get my hands on some vinyl.
Listening and dancing to the album has brought me endless waves of Fun Fun. I urge you to seek some Fun Fun. It’s happy music.
