Playing tracks by
L.T.D., Norma Jean Bell, Dublex Inc ft. Wayne Martin, Guts, Thunderball and more.
I've wanted to build a set around that LTD tune for the longest time -- the track has it all: Relentlessly funky b-line, irresistible dance grooves, great lyrics -- and let's not neglect to respect the group's great onstage outfits! Put it all together and oh, does this say The 70s to me: Huge 'fro's, platform soles and bell bottoms, and that psychedelia design hangover that just seems to never completely go away (witness the cover image, which is contemporary tag art.)
I found plenty in the digital crate to complement LTD, from the dark funk of Guts and Dublex to the azz-shakin' house of Cassius, Bent and Norma Jean Bell … if you find yourself staying seated while listening to this set, it might be time you talk to your doctor.
Special shout-outs this month to Giant Step and the N.O.W. WaxOn collections for helping me keep it deep and a special nod to Royksopp for their 'Track of the month' opportunity.
