Fourth rock from the sun.

I had the privilege of DJing with Jon Claude at the official Manchester Versus Cancer Aftershow on Saturday night at newish club MoHo Live. I was initially hesitant about the gig, and uncharacteristically nervous on the night due to the amount of old school Manchester sorts that were there in the clear belief that it's still 1988. We'd been given the brief of a "Shoplifters Classics" set, meaning big remixes guaranteed to get the crowd moving. I naturally turned to the DFA, as they've soundtracked many a party over the last few years with their redux's, and some of their older mixes have become more popular than the originals. While I didn't get chance to play this, this take on "Mars Arizona" by Blues Explosion is a star turn, with it's disco beat for the first half which morphs into wobbly acid in the second. Great stuff, give it a whirl if it sounds your thing.
