ETTA JAMES - Get Your Lovin' Ready (BB Edit)

I made this about eight years ago to play in my sets, just me wibbling about unnecessarily with one her lesser known songs. Along with Gladys Knight, I think she's my favourite singer. RIP Etta.

LEO SAYER - Easy To Love (Vincent Velocette Edit)

He was first person I ever saw live you know. Cleethorpes Pier, it was. 1973 or maybe 1974. Also saw the Fenn Street Gang live there. Peter Cleal was well posh. Anyhow, did this edit some years ago and then forgot about it, but since it's just appeared on Matthew Burgess's splendid mix on Emotional Pop (http://www.emotionalpop.com/ep34-matthew-burgess-who-dares-to-love-forever) thought I'd re-up. Here you go.

5. Solid Steel Radio Show 25/9/2015 Hour 1 - Bill Brewster

Solid Steel Radio Show 25/9/2015 Hour 1 - Bill Brewster

Solid Steel in association with Serato (25th September) Our guest in Hour 1 needs little introduction, having documented DJ culture for many years through his writing and DJ History website, as well as being a well respected DJ. When asked for a few words, he wrote; Never forget that DJing is entertainment. As much as us nerds and geeks love digging for new and oddball music, you’ve still got to entertain the crowd in front of you. Which, in this case happens to be you. Hello. How are you? Really? Me too. The advantage of entertaining you rather than a dancefloor is that I can afford to go off the chosen path occasionally and take a few diversions (it’s not that often, for example, you get the chance to play Yoko Ono without the threat of physical violence hovering somewhere in the foreground). Even so, it’s important – to me, at least – to offer something that dips its toes in between the dancing part of the job and the entertaining (pull up a chair, crack open the Diazepam). As in my most of my club sets, I try and balance between the brand new, new-to-me and ones pulled out of the festering mess where my records reside and combine them into a delightful musical soufflé. If you’re counting the calories, best wait a while before dipping into this. I’ve spent a decent chunk of this year compiling a series called Sources for Harmless (30 CDs in total… Phew), it’s brought a few old favourites up to the surface to get some air, so Clandestine’s ‘Radio Rhythms’ on Sleeping Bag is on here; arguably the nearest hip hop ever got to country & western. The opener is by Aax Donnell and Eric Malone and is one of those ridiculous and brilliant Italian records that I have a weakness for. Aax Donnell was also in Traks, who cut some great stuff in the early 80s. The Jill Scott song ‘Gimme’, I’ve been playing since it came out over ten years ago and never got bored of playing. There’s a whole raft of new stuff, some of which I got in the past week, some I’ve been playing over the summer. There are a few things on here you might not know, but equally there’s Fatima Yamaha, my favourite tune of the summer of 2015 (and yes, I’m aware it originally came out in 2004), to even things out and since there’s a new Prince album, a bit of that too (buy it, it’s surprisingly good).

TWEET - Boogie 2Nite (Fat Camp Mix)

Me and Paul Noble did this mix shortly after the original came out. It was originally released - very briefly - on Disco Sucks about 6 years ago. Greg Wilson started playing it some time after it had been released and we started getting requests for it. Now's the chance to fill your boots.

14. GOURANGA MIXTAPE: Bill Brewster's Electric Eighties Mix

GOURANGA MIXTAPE:  Bill Brewster's Electric Eighties Mix

BILL BREWSTER presents Electric Eighties @billbrewster "When disco crashed and the recording industry rejected dance music in the United States, the party didn’t stop, it just moved to a cheaper neighbourhood. The drummers mostly got laid off, the big recording studios started to close and the sound of disco changed completely. No more string sections, no big budgets. In its place came the sound that pre-dated house music: electronic disco (in Europe, a lot of it got another new name: Italo-disco). This mix is the sound of those records. All but two were made in north America, the others in the UK. It’s what happened when soul and disco met synthesisers and drum machines and it still sounds great today. Enjoy." NONA HENDRYX - Transformation DESI - I Want To Be With You DELEGATION - It’s Your Turn STAPLE SINGERS - Slippery People BRENDA TAYLOR - You Can’t Have Your Cake And Eat It Too LONZINE WRIGHT - Stop The Taxi DOLOS - Night So Right EMPRESS - Take A Risk CAROL WILLIAMS - You’ve Reached The Bottom Line RAMM - Spark The Universe LOVE CLUB - Hot Summer Nights SWEET PEA ATKINSON - Dance Or Die THE O’JAYS - Put Our Heads Together FORRCE - Keep On Dubbin’ KATIE KISSOON - You’re The One (My Number One) Bill Brewster is a record collector, DJ, promoter and music writer and consultant. Along with Frank Broughton, he’s responsible for books like Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and How To DJ (Properly), the pair also responsible for the legendary party Low Life, which closed in 2015 after 20 years of fun. As a DJ, Bill is a former Fabric resident who now plays all over the word. He’s also the patron saint of lost causes and in the spirit of that supports Grimsby Town. www.gourangamusic.com www.facebook.com/ilovegouranga www.instagram.com/gouranga_music
