  • Dancefloor dynamite

    I told you I was digging up the old threads didn't I!

    Myself and my mates have been persuaded to dj again at our local working mens club. The night was previously titled 'Something Big' although I'd like to rename it 'Phoenix Nights'.

    As I'm going to spend at least one Evening this year desperately trying to entice a crowd that look like onto the dancefloor I thought I'd ask you lovely people what your current and classic floor packing tunes are.

    I then plan to buy them, steal all of your thunder and fill the club with gyrating who will think I have great records.

    Ok, that bits a lie (well the definitely is).

    So you mob who DJ, what gets your crowd going?
    He also contributed songs for the Jim Henson movie vehicle 'Muppets From Space'.

          Too busy laughing at Col&#39;s comments regarding the Newmarket legend that is &quot;Big Vern&quot; to list five, but one of my fave tunes at the mo is the Erma Franklin version of &quot;Light My Fire&quot; - always gets a reaction &#33;

          Hayd - you gonna drag me and Towny down for some guest spots ? ? ?

           
          If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

              No such thing as a sure thing. I did soem DJing before xmas and it was plugged as Acthung Oxfam - a strictly charity shop set, but the majority of people in that night were aging punk fans who just weren&#39;t going for it. Even the solitary Magazine album I had did nada.
              Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

                RSL - Wesley music. http://www.fatcity.co.uk/fatcity/sho...sp?itemid=2123

                This was HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE on housier/broken beat dancefloors.

                I&#39;m packing my back tonight for tomorrow&#39;s HF&amp;S session so I&#39;ll drop some records of floor fillers I might have.

                  seconded. bill tipped this one and it even filled the floor at Hot, Funky And Sweaty. forget the artist name and just buy it. brilliant, and funky as hell.

                  mostly obvious but they&#39;re dancefloor classics for good reason&#33;
                  stevie wonder - i wish
                  bobby byrd - i know you got soul
                  jackson sisters - i believe in miracles
                  doris - beatmaker (slow but ace, works everywhere)
                  nilsmen - le winston (hip hoppers love the slower flip too)
                  sugarbear johnson - when your jones come down (wicked disco-y funk 45 from 1980)
                  sammy davis - for once in my life (wicked funky version off cheapo TV show OST)

                            When I have ever played wool? (Oh yeah I remember - At little barrie?)

                            I wasn&#39;t gonna bring broken beat gear mate. Ive turned up to bars/clubs and played the &#39;correct&#39; music before...Well everyone liked it in the pink coconut anyways...
