Year of the Edit - DJ Apt One - We Gonna Party Tonight

Each week in 2011, the "Year of the Edit," Dollar Bin Jams and Young Robots Records will be debuting one exclusive edit for your enjoyment!

Hello DBJ-ers, back at it again this week with another edit from the private stock. This one was hopefully gonna see a wax release at some point, but it never quite worked out. That said, it's what I consider some of my best work, and it has always jumped off the party when I've dropped it. Hopefully it does the same for y'all!

"This might be my favorite thing you ever did."
-Cosmo Baker

I'm particularly proud of this one because it's a pretty complete composition, a remix really, a lot more in the vein of my "Any Time is Right" edit than my "I Can't Go For That."

The record gurus behind Turnaround vs. Immediate and Fish n Chips defied the rules of space & time and blended their tastes together perfectly in this new mix. Here's a little explanation from them...

Pop music since it's inception has always been a swirling, contorted amalgamation of melodic, rhythmic, and visual concepts. These concepts have routinely emerged from the combination of unlikely macro-political, economic and artistic forces that for 60-some odd years have dominated airwaves, discotheques, bedrooms and imaginations of generations of young people.

We, the brotherhood of the Turnaround Vs. Immediate & Fish 'N Chips consortium for musical synergy, believe the transatlantic mirroring between the rhythm & melody of the American metropolis, farmland & delta and the British cognition & subsequent reinterpretation of such phenomena is undoubtedly the most captivating & stimulating example of musical symbiosis to date. Dig this if you will: American music rises from the mire of the slave and the immigrant (folk & blues) and captures the imagination of young post-WWII Brits; forms bands like The Rolling Stones, The Small Faces, The Yardbirds, The Beatles. Through a complex system of virtual smoke-signals on each of the Atlantic, the music is wired back Stateside & musicians and producers on both ends up the ante, propelling virtually every genre of pop music, beginning with garage-nuggets, R&B, disco, punk-rock, alternative rock, house, and so on.

To articulate the unification of the great musical output of both of these countries, we figured it proper to conjoin two parties: one's focus on raw soul, funk & psyche (Turnaround Vs. Immediate), the others on Brit-pop, Hacienda-house, Punk-Funk & Factory Records (Fish 'N Chips). The TVI-FNC consortium has drafted a 40 minute sonic-affidavit to illustrate precisely what we're talking about...

We believe there are no coincidences that it's effortless to mix the drum breaks for Stone Roses' "Fools Gold" to Bobby Byrds' "Hot Pants, I'm Comin'" or Stereo MC's "Connected" with Jimmy Bo Horne's "Let Me Be Your Lover." These genres feed off of one another and will prove to be a veritable musical summit on February 18th - our debut is a 2-floor blow-out at Philadelphia's beacon of Bacchanalia, The Barbary (951 Frankford Avenue). Dig into this mix, turn it way up & get the weekend on your mind, we'll see you on the dance floor!

DJ Apt One - Best of Philly Disco Volume 2

Happy Valentine's Day from the City of Brotherly Love! I've got some gifts for you!

About 10 minutes into creating my "Best of Philly Disco" mix in 2009, I immediately realized that at least one, if not two sequels were necessary. In trying to represent so many facets of this prolific time in Philly's music history (and make a tasteful mix), I realized that one mix couldn't cover it all.

Here again are the criteria I used to select the tunes:
1. Made by a Philly-born/bred artist
2. Made by an artist on a Philly record label
3. Written/Arranged/Composed someone strongly associated with the Philly sound
4. Played by a Philly label’s house band
This volume is dedicated to the memory of the great Teddy Pendergrass, who passed away in 2010.

As an added bonus (and this week's "Year of the Edit" contribution), you can download my edit of The Spinners - I'll Be Around which appears on the mix!

The tracklist appears in the comments section of the post.

Year of the Edit - DJ Co-Op

Each week in 2011, the "Year of the Edit," Dollar Bin Jams and Young Robots Records will be debuting one exclusive edit for your enjoyment!

Our edit this week comes all the way from the Great White North aka America's Hat aka Don Cherry and Rick Moranis listening to Justin Beiber in an Igloo aka CANADA. Our NAFTA liason on that side of the line is DJ Co-Op from Winnipeg. You may remember Co-op and his homie Hunnicutt for their whimsical series of food-themed party breaks some time back.

Co-op laced us up with a real funky edit for this week's installment. Great stuff!

Don't Stop

Here's some disco heat from San Francisco's Sergio Fedasz & Ion The Prize. They succeeded at the delicate task of tastefully updating a classic. Now it's a perfect slow burner for warming up the crowd.

Wiz Khalifa - Say Yeah (Philadelphyinz & Relative Q Rmx)

This is an official remix we did for Wiz a number of years ago when he was on Warner. Wiz left Warner before the remixes for this particular single could ever be released. With Wiz's surge in popularity, I've had some folks ask me about it in recent weeks, so here it is!
