The Show: Retro-a-go-go

As mentioned at the start of the show, Mike D is the latest artist to be pressganged into making a runway mixtape for a haute couture fashion show. He’s done a freaky mix for Kenzo. [Thx Dangerous Minds]

Speaking of fashion shows, while the Justice “Planisphere” mix for the Dior Homme summer 2009 show is the sweetest of them all, the set that Chromatics did for the Chanel spring/summer 2013 show is super classy.

The Show: Party like it’s 1991

Like Ebony Bones, The Joint is partial to a little bit of glamour.

As we mention towards the end of the show, we did encounter some problems with the recording for the podcast. We’ve had to resort to using our uncompressed back up option. The songs still sound pretty good though…

The Show: Lost in music

When I remembered yesterday that Nile Rodgers of Chic had been working on the new Daft Punk album it sent me on a late night YouTube bender digging up lots of classic Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards productions. In 1979 they wrote “Spacer” for French outfit Sheila and Black Devotion. I wouldn’t be surprised if the new Daft Punk album is a retread of “Discovery”. And that would be a very nice thing.

The Show: Loose booty

The Herb Whisperer played Elvis Costello‘s 1978 classic “Pump It Up” because allegedly it is sampled in the Beastie Boys’ album Paul’s Boutique, a bona fide treasure trove of samples.

It may explain why Sly & The Family Stone’s “Loose Booty” is now an earworm – it was sampled on the track “Shadrach”. Here’s a video of”Loose Booty” from 1975…

And let’s not forget Elvis Costello, from 1978…

If you want to listen to the Solid Steel Radio Show where DJ’s Cheeba, Moneyshot and Food deconstruct, reimagine and reassemble Paul’s Boutique (and in the process revealing to The Herb Whisperer the presence of Pump It Up on the original), here it is.
