Tell me bout love
In 1993 i was still living in Nottingham and djing at The Garage, Nero's and a monthly night called Tutti Frutti. None of you will have heard of them unless you lived in Notts but this was when i used to play mostly House. The house music doin the rounds then was 'Proper' it had balls and was FFFFFfresh. David Morales' the gayest looking straight guy on the block was producing as 'The Bad Yard Club' and made the album 'The Program' (The DEF mix of the title track i posted earlier) featured on the album was the ragga pop track 'Gimme Love' the best mix above all being the monster 'Jackie 60 Experience Mix' ... 'feat Donna Giles, the intro is enough to kill me..... It reminds me of going to The Yard in Mansfield, Deluxe in Nottingham and 'Progress' in Derby. This was when Alistair Whitehead and Jeremy Healy were regulars on the scene.
Speaking of Jeremy Healy he's just got engaged to Patsy Kensit, for the second time. A couple of weeks ago i filmed the Trailer Trash Summer Party in the east end of london. A Rave Tent featuring Tomboy, Brodinski, Hannah Holland, Mikki Most, Jonjo and Ian Robinson. Alongside a Disco Tent featuring the Horsemeat Disco crew and Disco Bloodbath. It was A-mazing. I ended up staying in the Disco tent until the end and it was at 6am that Dan Beaumont of Disco Bloodbath played this next track. Originally produced by The Pet Shop Boys , Eighth Wonders 'Im Not Scared' dodgy vocals from Patsy Kensit but the ultimate guilty pleasure. Drag queens lip syncing, Drag queens on the speaker boxes what a way to end the party, genius!
