This was on the first volume of your Saturday Nite Live mix series.
DT: We put it out [as well].
Really? I wasn't sure whether Discfunction was your label. Let's talk a little bit about Erot who, sadly, is no longer with us.
DT: What can you say? If you hear this song—or the song that's on the other side, which is a Curtis Mayfield loop on the wrong speed with him just doing his thing—it just does you. Every time. I can't hear this record—and this is one record that got played a lot [by us]—without it having some quite emotional [effect on me]. It's weird. Erot was really good mates with Bjørn Torske and we met him a few times because we were going there a lot.
To Bergen?
DT: Yeah. And Oslo. Erot was really into it. He was starting to do a lot of stuff, and collecting lots of records. I remember when we had to give him some money for this record he just said, "Can you get me a load of records [instead]?" 

So we bought him a load of disco records! [laughs] That was probably one of the last times we saw him: to give him 40 12-inches: "Here you go mate, here's a bag of records." And he was like, "Yes!" He was made-up. If you listen to any of his records they are properly out there, dub music. Rules are out the window.
Where do you think that approach came from, because he was only 23 when he died?
DT: God knows. And God knows what he would have done [had he lived], bless him.

warped love

(image courtesy of nasa)

two tracks today, one old one new. 

crazy p are a british live disco/funk/boogie whatever group and they have been making some really good music over the past five years or so. This track is a single from their latest record and it features the london's unabombers on the remix, they had a long running club night in london called the electric chair. their remix turns the discofied original into a classic new york house workout.

huge track right here, this is eddie grant's(!) original project, this is one of those songs that is hard to classify, there are some disco elements and maybe some dub influence but it really goes beyond that. pat mahoney played it at the last dfa night at celebrities and people were getting wild.
