Welcome to this week’s playlist, curated by London party starters, Cadillac.
This trio of London DJs have put together a Valentine’s Day themed selection to ensure your romantic weekend goes off with a bang.
If you’re not feeling the love, then at least you can console yourself with a fine selection of tunes roaming the boogie wonderland between disco, house, tropical and afro-beat.
With slots on MEATtransMISSION, a recent shindig with Manchester’s finest Will Tramp and a beach bar showdown at this year’s Electric Elephant, these gents are fast becoming luminaries in disco land. You can also catch them at the helm this weekend at their free Love on a Bus, all day party at Wunderlust in Deptford.
Find out more here and check out their mighty selection below for an aural taster to tickle your ear drums. Dig into their choices from each of the trio including Etta James, Maurice Fulton and many more…
Deep inside of you – Gloria Ann-Taylor
Ever felt something deep inside of you? Give this a go.
Love Endeavour (Maurice Fulton Remix) – Alice Smith
Fulton with some of his finest remixing right here. Record bag staple.
Honki Ponki – Senay
Just got this on a repress. Weird yet delightful.
At Last – Etta James
The first lady of Cadillac made her way down the aisle to this. What a voice. Etta that is….
One Night Affair – Spargo
1980’s dutch funk disco comin’ at ya.
Mr Right (Club Mix) – Eleanore Mills
A lot of disco tracks kind of have a pretty similar beat. This one’s pretty unique. Great vocal too. Long time favourite.
Method Of Modern Love – Hall and Oates
Love this track, I kicked off our NYE radioshow on MEATtransMISSION with it
Moments In Love – Art of Noise
Classic downbeat business
Hang On To Your Love – Sade
What’s not to love? Love a bit of Sade
Baby Wants To Ride – Frankie Knuckles
The Black Madonna played this really pitched down at Field Maneuvers last year. Brilliant.
Magic Bird of Fire (John Morales remix) – The Salsoul Orchestra
One of my favourites from M+M Mixtapes vol 2. Perfect soundtrack for a spoof 70s shoot-out scene between a cop detective and two hot female spies out to get him, fueled with passion. Pow!
You and I (Isaac Tichauer remix) – Tony Betties
Nice slomo edit from Tichauer, great for working an early groove and invoking sunshine, peace and loving.
Shopping Cart – Parallel Dance Ensemble
First heard this on a Wolf + Lamb vs. Soul Clap Greatest Hits mixtape a few years back. Wicked track. Love the lyrics… and the bassline!
Beaches of the Black Sea – Pacific Horizons
Teleport yourself and your loved one, past, present or future to your own tropical paradise x
Don’t Look Any Further – Dennis Edwards
You can’t fault this in your ‘wedding banger’ artillery. Quite a few edits of this, but dig deep for a particular slomo edit if you can, by an undisclosed artist I rate incredibly highly.
