Beat This

Dark dancefloor-ready synth jam from Night Moves. Yes, this is the same Night Moves of "Transdance" fame. Arthur Baker should take a stab at remixing this. Also, anyone hear similarities to "Set It Off" in the drums/weird repeating whistle sound? No? Maybe I'm crazy.

Interesting random nugget: Shirley Lites of "Heat You Up (Melt You Down)" fame plays live every other Thursday at Abi's Desert Lounge in West Philly. No, I'm not joking. Evidently she's old friends with "Abi", or whoever runs the place, so she uses it as a testing ground for new material and a way to rehearse live. Today she leaves for a tour of Japan.

After seeing her name on a poster taped to the outside of the bar, my friend Ryan and I did a little investigative questioning and found out that it was indeed that Shirley Lites. I returned with my copy of the "Heat You Up" 12" and asked her to sign it. "Finally we meet!", she wrote. She also commented that she never expected to see her record in the hands of young people in 2008. Next time, I will harass her for Larry Levan stories or unreleased tapes.

Many, many DBJ related gigs this weekend. Check out the Robotique, Hurrah, Philadelphyinz and Restless Leg Syndrome pages to make your holiday weekend plans.
