Studio One Los Angeles Mix

studio one

Studio One, Los Angeles Mix

Sounds played thirty seven years ago, the week of April the 18th to 23th 1977 at Studio One disco at 652 North LaPeer Drive in West Hollywood Los Angeles. According to Vince Aletti’s book, dj Paul Dougan listed the German record Jungle People by Soulful Dynamics as one of the hottest tracks. Also popular in clubs that week and included in the mix: the brilliant disco exotica number O Ba Ba by D.C LaRue, the seven minute version of Ritchie Family’s Lady Luck, the non-remixed original version of Kings of Clubs by The Chocolats, the David Todd remix of Faith, Hope & Charity’s You’re My Peace Of Mind, etc.

They used vinyls only in 1977 just like we do now at Overfitting Disco, of course.

Night People Mix (Times Square, October 1976)

times
37630

Night People Mix

The 3rd in the series based on the club lists in Vince Aletti’s book The Disco Files. The time is October 1976, the music tracks like Night People by Fantastic Four that were introduced at discos earlier as promos and imports. Now out commercially, the records are being pumped thru radios all over, in cars, stores, cocktail bars, hair salons, especially in New York.

The heart of New York is awash with the sound. Talking about Times Square area, the neon-lit urban jungle of blocks around Broadway and Seventh & Eight Avenue, stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Massage parlours, fast food joints, cinemas showing grotesque exploitation and porn films 24 hours a day, every day of the year. People pushing and shoving, loitering around doorways, pimps, pushers, prostitutes, junkies and alcoholics everywhere. Weird smells, smoke, deafening noise, sirens, screams, disco music.

This rich undergrowth of American culture is all gone now, nothing remains of the once vibrant, dangerous and exciting scene. All the cinemas are either gone or transformed and the filth is all cleaned up. Where once films like Rump Humpers or Trap Them And Kill Them lured in the curious or the homeless the latest Pixar animations now play for whole families. Everything is destroyed forever.

The Story is best told in Tales Of Times Square by Josh Alan Friedman, out by Feral House Books as an expanded edition:
“A six-foot-tall black hooker in a blond wig comes strutting down Eighth Avenue. “Wanna go out?” she asks to businessmen walking by. No response. “Looking for a date?”. No-one acknowledges her presence. She stands more aggressively in the middle of the sidewalk, grabbing pedestrians. “Wanna date, honey? Lookin for some sex? Wanna good time? How ‘bout a suck and fuck?”. Everybody just brushes her aside. She feels desperate and screams “DON’T NO ONE WANNA PAY FOR MAH PUSSY?”.

You get to go to Platos’s Retreat, live shows offering couples on stage, greasy restaurants, whorehouses, strip clubs plus all the grindhouses and pornies like The Harem on 249 West: “A double bill of second-run porn is showing, Titillation and Never Enough. Two long, narrow rows of seats are occupied by black transvestites, pre-op transsexuals, subway toilet queens, and confused Japanese tourists. Night and day, they live here for five bucks. Not one empty seat. Ghastly, open-mouthed faces lie unconscious, others are smoking, wheezing, spitting, festering in the warmth of each other’s disease.”

I so want to go back to Times Square but can’t. We still have the music, though.

12 West Mix

disco-inferno-title

12 West Mix

The 2nd mix in the series based on the club charts of Vince Aletti’s book Disco Files. This one contains records spinned at the legendary New York gay club 12 West during the last week of 1975 and the first ones of 76, seemingly the culmination point of a particularily bizarre period in music history. This is when the disco remake subgenre was at it’s peak and all kinds of dance versions of hits and unlikely hitettes flooded the market from all over the globe.

One would have thought the shirtless guys at places like 12 West and The Flamingo would go for tough tracks but no, they embraced the camp excesses of “Baby Face” by The Wing and A Prayer Fife & Drum Corps and “My Way” by The Bobby Azeff Orchestra. Talking of which, even Frank Sinatra himself decided to update his repertoire with a discofied interpretation of the standard “Night And Day”, included here along with then-hot diva dance tunes by flamboyant gay icons Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand.

La Martinique, New York

b41111ecd4a27d4c7395ab9bde33522a

La Martinique, New York

Starting a new series focusing on playlists featured in Vince Aletti’s book Disco Files.

On page 49 dj Raymond Goynes lists his top ten for the week of December 28 1974 at La Martinique in New York. The titles include kickass boogiestyle cuts like Philadelphia by B.B. King, Express By B.T.Express and both the Gene Page and Love Unlimited Ork versions of Barry White’s Satin Soul. Many of the other records popular in clubs during the week like Get Dancin’ by Disco Tex and the Sex-O-Lettes, one of the biggest hits of the season, don’t get mentioned but it’s quite possible that at least this hilarious/awful/fascinating fave got spinned at La Martinique as well. Hear some of Get Dancin’ in the mix and see what you think. Crap or grand?

Darkroom Disco Mix

room

Jussi Kantonen – Darkroom Disco Mix

Originally commissioned to kick off a new series of mixes presented on author Luca Locati Luciani’s FB page for his book “Crisco Disco – Disco Music & clubbing gay negli anni ’70-’80″, this is c 50 minutes of music to be played in a darkened room full of cowboys, cyborgs, nuns and French sailor boys. For the latter, there’s a lengthy segment focusing on Paris, with tracks by Zamulo, Patrick Juvet and Bernheim. The others might go for Bazooka, Disco Dick or Denise McCann bellowing out a disco version of the Marlene Dietrich classic The Boys In The Back Room:
“See what the boys in the backroom will have,
And tell them I’m having the same.
Go see what the boys in the backroom will have,
And give them the poison they name.”

Disco Eclético Mix

vdr_found009

Disco Eclético mix

Some like to dip their toes into perfectly clean piscines only, fearful of contaminated water and catching venereal diseases from other swimmers. Or floating turds. Same goes for night clubs, many shun away from lowlife. This here mix is not for well behaving people but it’s got a lot of variety, if not good taste. I originally intended to have it as my entry for the birthday selection but some of the tunes have been posted already by other members and a few tracks arrived too late for the deadline. Thanks: Thomas, Anssi & Carlo.

Aicha-cha-cha

aicha

Dj Aicha, c’est elle! Le son va de Disco Francaise en passant par des sons Champs-Elysées et une pointe de La Main Jaune (discothèque parisienne de type Roller Disco). C’est clairement le partenaire idéal pour une petite après midi au bord de la piscine à siroter un bon cocktail. Ou une nuit furieuse, fiévreuse et enflammée.

Los Angeles ´76 Mix

Pam

Los Angeles ´76 mix

What kind of car did Pam Grier drive in 1976 – a De Tomaso Pantera GTS? A yellow Chevrolet Corvette? Imagine her behind the wheel at midnight, cruising past the billboards on her way to the After Dark in the corner of Beverly Boulevard and La Cienega, or to the famous Circus Disco. This is the music she heard on the radio, switching channels every few minutes. Cool jazzy moods, elegant instrumentals, male harmony tunes and a hot latin hustle classic or two.

Life Is Real Only Here

satelitten_situation

Life Is Real Only Here

Should you have a soft spot for pulse disco – and by your choice of reading & listening material we take our chances – the works of Wolfgang Bock and Andre Ceccarelli should prove to be interesting as both provide delicate yet authoritative soundscape designs. The opening track Cycles by Bock and the following Life Is Real Only Here by Ceccarelli are extremely sophisticated explorations of space, texture and structure, set to a gently throbbing and definitely danceable beat. I also added a couple of other relating cuts of equally peaceful/agitated palette and subject matter.

Hills Of Bondhalla

Hills Of Bondhalla

I’ll fly with you
To the Mystic Hills of Bondhalla!

Smoke-scented breeze fills the trees
And you drift away
Slowly downstream in a dream
That goes on and on
On forever!

From meditative moods to fuck-art-let’s-dance bangers, here’s some of the music I played and should have played at Camp Cosmic 2013 in the hills of Bondhalla, Sweden.

All I know at this point it’ll be in Palermo Thursday the 20th, it’ll be part of the Pride 2013 and it’ll be a special book publication party for Luca Locati Luciani’s new book on disco.
Djs are Eva Kant, Barbarella and Jussi. The easiest way to fly is to transfer at Rome Fiumincino, quite a few flights daily.

La Camarque

nice2

At La Camarque

The mythical La Camarque disco in the Cour Saleya flower market in Nice opened in 1977. For well over ten years the rhythms, colourful clientele and wild dancing on raised podiums created a fantasy that fulfilled every image and expectation of La Grand Vie on the Riviera. This is where I heard the astonishing Marcia Baila by Les Rita Mitsouko for the first time during the summer of 1985.
