A bit behind on posting new shows due to the holidaze, but catching up quick and ready to lay it down thick in 2005. Watch for a New Year’s Eve blaster real soon too.

Part 1 > Quick holiday psychedelic soul then an ode to all things Friday Night. Live funk percussion mixes as Faze-O hits soaring spacefunk and Jackson 5ive’s drummy breaks pick up tempo. Arpeggiated boogie from Coco Du Jour and Johnson Products’ simple-yet-irrestible grooves push it along to a poppin’ italo cover of Tequila. Ends tag-team w/ moody chicago house classics including Mike Dunn’s anthem ‘Magic Feet’.

Part 2 > the tagteam fun continues with windy city acid from armando/armani, then stays close to the heart of chicago with early efforts from symbols & instruments, joshua, and ron trent, and a hard-edged mr. fingers. some cool uk obscurities follow, and deep dub techno from germany’s basic channel collective rounds out the set, with new music from the echocord label in the mix.
