It being the first weekend of the month, there’s a number of options for your perusal this weekend.
I’ve harboured a quiet love for Mickey ever since the amazingly uplifting review of 1982 track Afrique Adieu by iconic French singer Michel Sardou. His bio says he’s been influenced by music of the 60s, 70s, 80s and today, and as well as providing us with tracks which sound out the very essence of disco, he adds in a little afrobeat into the mix, and my personal favourite, a heavy dose of the piano. A very modern take on all these elements, and crafted to perfection.
Today he was kind enough to give us his latest work; a remix for Beni‘s Yeah out on the mighty Modular in March. Download: Beni – Yeah (Mickey Remix)
So here we reach the happily-ever-after of the tale of my love for Mickey. I hope you feel the same.
The longest month of the year is finally drawing to a close, and hopefully with it the long drought on the ol’ cash flow. Clubworld has cottoned on to the fact that pay day is soon to shine upon us like a weak and distant sun, and there are quite a few tasty options for the weekend.
2009 was incredibly easy to pick a favourite record, it was without doubt the A-Trak remix of Heads Will Roll by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. This year, largely due to writing this blog I think there’s been a lot of chopping and changing my allegiances between sub-genres, and so my top tracks list has to be quite long. As always, there’ve been a lot of records that have had huge associations for places like the Miami Winter Music Conference. Imagine Aeroplane playing Crave You by the pool as the sun set….
Here’s a my top 20 of 2010’s shining stars which had to be very heavily edited down from the shortlist of 45, and a mix by one of the stars of 2011 – our friend Sylvester, recorded at the Mews Sessions.
A huge huge thank you to the Ed Banger crew for giving us a slice of winter wonderland at The Warehouse Project last week. We’ve included two Carte Blanche tracks this week as Mehdi and Riton absolutely blew the roof off, and I’ve very much enjoyed watching their sets come together this year and distill into something completely reactive. We’re heading North again tonight for another monumental Warehouse lineup: Simian Mobile Disco, Holy Ghost!, Aeroplane and Tensnake to name but a few.
More Thursday parties too as this week Night Slugs bring Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 to East Village and Counter Culture host Esper Magazine with Homework and Worthy. Counter Culture closes on 1 January so you really should get yourselves down there before then – it’s got that real house party vibe that we love.
Here are some tracks that will help you flick the bird at winter:
The Aeroplane October mix is here, and characteristically nostalgically exotic with dreamy vocals and spanish guitars. Starting with the beautiful Shakedown Street by Sleazy McQueen, part of a 6-track sampler released on 5 October from his own re-edit label Whiskey Disco. A perfect antidote to a cold day.

1. Sleazy McQueen – Shakedown Street ( Tres Gueros Edit )
2.Fritz Kalkbrenner – Facing The Sun
3.Martians – Bonitos
4.Crimea X – Varvara

It’s that first-of-the-month syndrome where everyone decides to put on a night, and when you combine that with the back-to-school, freezing-cold, if-we-keep-dancing-maybe-winter-will-go-away feeling, the results are pretty explosive.
