hahahaha a sub sub sub genre of disco

“Anyway, here is a mix of stripped-down slimey slutty sunrise disco to serve as the soundtrack for you and your pals doing amyl nitrite and having sex in public”.


Many thanks for making this thread. I never heard of Chrissy before, but I will definitely be checking him out. What caught my eye here was the article about Vinyl and Hardware elitism that is plaguing dance music.

I’m reading his piece right now and I feel he read my mind.

I appreciate any body using vinyl, but claiming that you are a ‘better’ dj because you have a record collection is just silly.


No problem, for me a big part of why I created this thread is to showcase a DJ that I see as a lifer - someone who loves the music so much they study this craft for decades and speak from those studies with a depth of knowledge that bucks certain trends BECAUSE he understands HOW they ebb and flow. He can also go from high brow to low brow in such a smooth way in both his mixes/sets and his interviews. The vinyl/hardware article is a great case, but dude also speaks so well about music as a form of resistance, the importance of dance floors, studios and record stores as creative and accepting spaces for LBGTQ/POC/anyone who needed them. His encyclopedic knowledge is so inspiring to me because it’s not only the music, its a beautiful ethnographic slice of global rituals associated with sound systems and dance from the 70s to the present… plus ive heard a rumor homie has a tattoo on his wrist like a watch and instead of numbers it says “It’s time for the percolator”…thats some midwest shit…:joy:


I definitely dig that. He’s one of the first that I’ve seen who bring up the point that producers/DJ from different cultures/countries don’t necessarily have access to vinyl or gear and discriminating against that is a form of racism. I really dig that.

On DJing, I really love a dj that just loves music in general. I understand that some places people attend to hear a specific genre, though I still believe you can throw in something completely different and still maintain the theme.
