Fresh from the Slow Roast grill comes this amazing package of Senor Stereo remixes, which you can pick up exclusively at Beatport (other digi retailers to follow). The disco-inspired trio of Danny Daze, Gigamesh and Joe Maz have been producing on their own (and in various combinations together) for years, but first hit the scene as SS this past summer with the release of their Unintentional EP – the tracks quickly became DJ favorites, so it’s no surprise that these brand-new remixes more than follow suit, with Treasure Fingers, Nadastrom, U-Tern, Salva, Craze and SS’s own Gigamesh all providing awesome, instantly-clubbable new versions. Cop em!

What’s good, Fool’s Gold massive? Your favorite record nerd is back again to drop some gems on you, and when I say “gems” I really mean useless shit from the treasure trove that is La Cabeza De Cosmo. Now it’s fucking crazy to me that, here in the 21st Century, there still isn’t equal rights for the LGBT community in America. I cannot wrap my head around the fact that 2 people who love each other and devote their lives to one another, that are gay, do not share the same rights as those who are straight. One day, people will look back at this time and just be ashamed of themselves. Another thing that drives me absolutely batshit crazy are those people in the DJ and dance music community who are completely (consciously or not) homophobic. Don’t you know, if it weren’t for the gay community, none of this shit would even be here in the way it is? But that all might be another discussion for another time, and my time is so very precious, so let me get right to the music this week with “I Was Born This Way.” Read More
