It's Friday again, and i have a lot to do:
Review the Amazing Baby Album
Review Johnny Foreigner single
Write a post for The Fat! Club
Burn off new tunes to play tonight (about 10 CDs worth)
Go to Cargo to catch up with @OELSP (yep, twitter speak reaches plastic cowboys)
Head to the Queen Of Hoxton for a birthday,
Head to the Horse & Groom for Rut (run by the crew behind Vump)
Head to The Legion to catch up with Gold Panda)
Get to Marble Arch to DJ at 10.
So, in the meantime, i'm going to cram a few posts worth of stuff into one, base laziness, innit (i'm totally learning to write how people talk, and shit).
First up is my favourite, Todd Terje taking Wham and giving them a dreamy disco workout. I like this rather a lot, Todd has taken the verse out leaving it as, more or less, a dub version though it retains the chorus.

Also here this week is a little edit, from France's Mustard Pimp, of DJ Jean's The Launch which is fairly similar but with a bit more of a jacking beat. Amusing, at the least, though perhaps not filled with longevity.

Then The Twelves try get all disco on A-Ha. Not quite sure if this works yet or not. How does one re-edit such a ridiculously hook-laden piece of pop? Well, here's how they try:
A-Ha - Take On Me (The Twelves Remix)
Enjoy the weekend, i'm off to a tea party at Kenwood House on Saturday afternoon, then a store opening for my favourite little boutique, Behave, in Camden at around six, before DJing again.
