You’ve gotta be kidding me… Clarence Reid, aka Blowfly, has died of cancer

I’m going to do a post on the Clarence Reid material later, for now let’s have a good last laugh in the weird, and so un-PC, world of Blowfly.

Happy birthday to the original freak-a-holic, Greg Broussard, aka The Egyptian Lover

The Egyptian Lover is alive and kicking, doing DJ sets and producing tracks booming 808’s like it’s 1984. Freak this!

I like how in the background of this interview there’s a Blade Runner 45, and a Birth Control comp. He also name drops Pretty Tony and Juan Atkins.

Songs of The Day: Trinere – I Know You Love Me, and Stay In Love With Me

Both tracks from Trinere’s 1986, eponymous debut, produced by electro/freestyle/bass master, Pretty Tony. A slept on club classic.

I Know You Love Me is clearly a party starter, with some nice lead guitar work.

Stay In Love With Me tones things down, and goes in sexy, slow burner mode.

Song of The Day: Tangerine Dream – Love On A Real Train

Mr Robot kept up it’s streak of fine musical selections by paying homage to the famous Risky Business subway scene, with it’s own, sans sex, complete with Tangerine Dream.

Also, check out this Club Silencio remix, which adds just enough thump to get it across on a modern dancefloor.

Songs of The Day: Cat Stevens – Trouble (1970), and Was Dog A Doughnut? (1977)

Happy birthday, Yusuf. I, as many people, have a particular fondness for Cat’s tender tracks that appeared in Harold & Maude, of which Trouble is my favorite. I would be remiss however, if I did not also post the underground electro classic that is, Was Dog A Doughnut.

London based Vinyl Pimp Records, scores 24,000 record stash of Club/Dance music circa 1983-1993

An impressive haul, to say the least, though the hit to miss ratio is gonna be way more miss to hit, unquestionably. Even so, if only 20% is collectible, that’s still close to 5,000, with a lot of potential for remix rarities, white label oddities and some high dollar rewards, in a variety of genres. Regardless, I wanna go through those boxes!
