One of a kind New Yawker Pal Joey paved the way for sample-based house music with pioneering late ’80s and early ’90s creations like Soho “Hot Music” and Earth People “Dance,” all while slinging records at Vinylmania in the West Village and producing “Love’s Gonna Get’cha” for Boogie Down Productions. This makes him the perfect OG to enlist for a Fool’s Gold remix, and the beat master doesn’t disappoint, adding his signature loop d’loop touch to The Brothers Macklovitch’s “I Can Call You.” Pal Joey’s doubled up drum breaks (and freestyle vocal interlude!) take A-Trak and Dave 1’s Portrait cover to a dusted dancefloor in an outer borough near you. Listen Now!
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
