Sometimes a DJ just hits it right on the nail. Mastery at a young age. Incredibly sophisticated play with sounds and rhythm from Mees Dierdorp, Amsterdam. No words for this trip. Let him take you away.
In the religion of post-modernity, the DJ his the Three-in-one, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Faithless has a lot of faith in dance music with their 90’s hit:
God is a DJ – Faithless (1999)
“This is my church…”
What is dance without a DJ? The DJ is the savior, the messiah:
Last night a DJ saved my life – Indeep (1983)
Can we dance to funk music? Close your eyes, slowly sway and let your mind dance, back in time to 1999. Cory Henry, on Hammond, makes Prince’s 1999 even funkier… for a moment of introspection.
Can jazz music be used to dance?… well here are two samples.
Liquid Spirit (in the hugely popular Claptone remix) and Holding on (Disclosure remix) by baritone Gregory Porter.
Bob Sinclair is a minister of compassion in his 2006 song ‘World, Hold on‘. One day we will have to answer to the children… What would we answer if one day we would not stand before God but before our grand-grand-children.
The highest form of freedom is to know and accept yourself. Can this song help you on your quest? Well, just close your eyes then, because the video is terrible and has no relationship to the meaning of the song.
If a band does their own mixing, are they DJs then? This is a mix of two songs of the Boys Town Gang into 15 minutes of dancing pleasure. From their 1981 EP ‘Cruising’ the streets‘. Yes, we remember you! Like a good thing…
The synthesizer plays a multitude of human voices, as if from a choir. Somehow this stirs us deeper than a single voice. We want to ‘sing’ together.
It reminds me of that 80’s DISCO oddball song ‘Happy Song’ from Baby’s Gang.
