I'm surprised this classic Rick Rubin produced Go-Go cut was never issued on CD or digitally. Until a proper reissue comes along, here's a quality rip:

Menergy Movement After Party

 If you're in Detroit for Movement this weekend, come out to the R&R Saloon on Saturday for Menergy! Steve Summers & Magic Touch will be performing live and I'll be DJing alongside residents Mike Trombley & Scott Zacharias, Ron Morelli of L.I.E.S., and my homies Jeffrey & Shearn from The Magic Message. We're in it for the long haul, with strong songs from 8pm til 5am!

For more details, click here to view the Facebook event.
For directions, check the map embedded at the bottom of the post.

Of course, it wouldn't be a DBJ post without some music. First up, a taste of Steve Summers' L.I.E.S. release...

Ron Morelli recently held it down for L.I.E.S. on Beats In Space. Check out the mix below:

I've already posted this before, but Ron went above and beyond the call of duty with this mix...

So Much Love To Give

DJ Falcon & Thomas Bangalter on the track. If played successfully, this track should result in a massive group hug.

Disco Insert

This is different from the Disco Insert available on Beatport. It's approximately 87% more disco & might come in handy. Also, if you're in New York tonight, go to this.

Why Don't You Dub?

Smile Recordings is gradually making all of the vinyl only Mindless Boogie edits available digitally. For free. As WAV files. If you don't know, now you know.

Here's the Rove Dogs' take on Eberhard Schoener's "Why Don't You Answer?" featuring Sting on vocals. The Rove Dogs edits are some of my favorite from the series. Grab a wav, say "thanks" and check their Smile Recordings 'Edits' set for other goodies from Todd Terje & In Flagranti. I'll continue to post my favorites here too - some of these are solid gold.

Pittsburgh Track Authority Live Set

Recently, the Pittsburgh Track Authority recorded a killer live set for the Projektion podcast, with all 3 members on a variety of hardware accompanied by a live percussionist. I'd love to see a photo of the set-up - I imagine it would be vintage Roland porn. Anyway, the podcast is almost an hour's worth of analog, acidy house & techno. Dive in...

New Kool Kyle Rip

I posted this back in early 09 & just got a request for a re-up. My copy is pretty whipped, but I re-ripped them & cleaned them up this morning. Both sides are dope. I've actually been sleeping on the vocal - Kyle kinda kills it on the mic. The instrumental is a sleeper mellow disco beat. Does any recognize the bassline?

Searching To Find The One

Here's a very slight edit of Unlimited Touch off of the classic bootleg imprint Ballroom Records. Ballroom was responsible for both reissuing tracks & pressing up some useful edits. If any Jammers have further information on the label, please leave a comment.

We struck gold in the comment section, thanks to Em-Uno. Here's what he had to say:

Hey folks-
Ballroom was run by a French fellow of Italian background. I don't want to say his name since he was pretty secretive about doing this for obvisou reasons, but if you were on the record scene in NYC in the '90s/early 2000s you know who I'm talking about. He doesn't live in NYC anymore and isn't involved with pressing records now, to my knowledge. I helped him and his partner with press releases/onesheets and such, later did some re-edit work. Ballroom are almost all straight represses of medium-rare dance classics (this is the promo-only Francois K mix of "Searching"). We also did the Jazz-Funk label, Disco Strut, Disc-O-Lypso and a bunch of one-off reproductions. Some of these repros were so good that they have gotten into discogs and popsike as 'rare originals' or such. I get a kick out of that... Ballroom ended when the guy in charge left NYC, in 2002 I think.
