Profile

Canadian disco DJ: lifelong music nerd, 70's / 80's / all-kinds-of-disco music archivist and collector.

I blame my pre-school babysitter for kicking it all off in the late 70's, bringing all her 45's and LP's over, playing them while keeping me from destroying the house and injuring myself...unfortunately she hated disco and so did my siblings so I got very little exposure to it, which *thankfully* I would make up for later in life by educating myself on what I *should* have been listening to more of back when I was growing up!

In my school years would collect many 45's of my own as well as comps and cassettes from various genres and sources. Didn't start with 12" singles until the 90's, but like the disco exposure mentioned earlier, I made up for this too by "catching up" as time went on LOL.

First discovered the magic and miracle of beatmixing thanks to this amazing mixed comp, from K-tel of all places. I was blown away by the concept and it made me want to learn how to do that and become a DJ someday. In my teen years I would use double cassette decks to try and replicate mixes I heard!

My much older sister would bring me home mixed tapes from her DJ friends at bars she went to, and to say those tapes got worn out is an understatement. Turntablism fascinated me to no end.

Finally officially got into DJing in the early 90's, played in gay clubs from 1996 to 2008 before deciding to retire before it got too stale. Had enough of the late nights, drama, drunk / high people, and was slowly losing interest in new dance music on top of all that...good time to call it quits I'd say.

Now I spend my time as a serial collector of lossless audio, lost masters and various rare / obscure stuff.

As of 2020 have come out of DJ retirement and now do a weekly online show. It's a dream to be able to not only get back to what I love doing, but to only play the kind of music that *I* like!

I'm always up for connecting with like-minded music fans so feel free to send a message. Same goes if you have any specific questions about any of my items for sale feel free to send a message as well. I try to be as detailed as possible when applicable on the items I sell, but it's better to ask about anything before ordering if you're not sure.

Thanks!

Not one single review in over 20 years of Discogs existence about this wonderful legendary artist??? Glad after all this time that I’m still the first!

The tracklisting on the back sleeve is silly, it just seems to list al the tracks in random order rather than the correct one.

The Biz Markie / K.O. remix would be so much better if the music elements were actually in the same key as Monica's vocals! One is completely out of key with the other and it sounds awful. :(

Excellent Original/7” Version. Horrible remixes. Not sure why they didn’t include a mix with the melody intact.


Seemed to be par for the course for most commercially released Kylie remixes in the 2000's. So many terrible remixes. See full review
