Your top 5 picks & why:

 

  1. OXO – Keep On Living (1987)

The Franks’signature dish. Anytime, Anywhere.

Linker schuif naar beneden, rechter schuif naar boven.’
 

 

  1. Kindest Cuts – Prone (2015)

Part of the previously unreleased soundtrack to fictitious writer/director Joel              Hughes controversial 80s teen drama Wild in Blue.

Everything about Giallo Disco is great.

  1. Zoot Woman – Grey Day (2003) 

     

    I don’t have many musical memories from driving back home after a typical Ghent night out. But this one made it to memory lane (well actually also DJ Deeon – Da Dik Suk, but let’s forget about that. The little bastard took me by surprise.).

  2. Stelee Up – Waiting for you (1984)

All credits to The Franks’ second half Jackie Chavez.

 

  1. Anna – Systems Breaking Down (1982)

Systems breaking down. Let’s do a major sitdown and remain seated.

Tell us about yourself:

To be a good DJ you must develop the hunger’, Brewster and Broughton write in their book. Thang agrees. The hunger to smell new  well beforehand, the hunger that brings water to your mouth when discovering a lost collection of dusty vinyl, the hunger to dig into the past and revive old jams. Teasing and crowd pleasing are not a question of ‘or’, but of ‘when’. Obscure disco dubs next to high energy r&b next to slow motion techno next to Blondie next to a vintage rave classic, next to the next, rising on the horizon club banger? Anything goes, it’s all about the balance. And versatility. And… You get the picture.

     1. Koreless –  Sun

I was driving around Gent with a huge hangover. I switched on the radio, and Lefto’s radio show was playing. Always quality!  There is no drop en no beat at all! 🙂

It was also the last closing song for the first edition to  1988 in Kompass with Len Faki.

    2. Quiet Village – Pillow Talk

What i really like about this blog that you can just submit mellow songs, you are not asking for the next 10 techno bangers. Those songs are usually the one’s that you can never play at a gig, but they still express who you are!

Matthew from Radioslave has also started up this side project Quiet Village that is more easygoing and calm.

   3. Ultravox – Monument

Its more a poppy sound but you can go everywhere with this kind of track!

  4. Patrick Cowley – Mockingbird Dream

Pre-wave but its still spacy as fuck

He did just to much for the pop music, but left us too soon. He is often credited as a pioneer of electronic dance music. In 1971, at the age of 21, Cowley moved to San Francisco to attend the City College of San Francisco where he studied music, specifically the use of synthesizers.

  5. Chilly Gonzales – Knight Moves

I saw him once in Brussels. A really charming and warm person from Canada. He knows english and french so he had like the whole crowd in the club going bananza!

C & G 🙂

The man behind the famous Urgent Fm radio show

Texture

Your top 5 picks & why:

 

1)  51 Days – Paper Moon 

Legendary label from the early nineties. All releases (mostly from Dobre, Zki & Jamez) were really good & still sound very fresh 23 years after release.

2) Spike – Kanti Datum (Abel rmx)

Just buy the full album “Orange Cloud Nine” where the original is included. All winners on it. This is a more “dance friendly” edit from Red Light Radio’s Abel.

3) A Vision Of Panorama – Cacades

Solid & melodic track with the typical AVOP sound in it. I’ve played this one a lot in the Texture Radio shows & when I’m doing the warming-up or closing down I mostly have it with me. 

4) Midnight Zone – Danger Zone

This was re-released on the PPU label a few years ago. All time classics & a perfect one for early mornings.

5) Pino Daniele – Yes I Know My Way

Good memories on this track but haven’t played it out much. Always hesitating if it’s the perfect moment or not and then I forget to play it … 😉

One day!
