Retro Rewind - Watch "Queen's English" by Jose & Luis


So tonight I met up with DJ extraordinaire Terry Vietheer to discuss our new gay club night at East Bloc coming up on March 25th called Queen Sound System and we were discussing what sort of music we are going to play and what not and one track that I'm dying to spin again is this retro goodie by former Madonna backing dancers Jose & Luis called "Queen's English".

I used to play this track non-stop when it was big back in the day.  I love that half the track is actually Madonna singing and the other half is Jose & Luis being their wonderfully campy and fierce selves.  It's so nu-reto and fits in quite nicely with the likes of current Beth Ditto, Hercules & Love Affair and any other nu-retro 80s/90s-esque track that comes to mind.  

And if you're interested in coming to Queen Sound System on March 25th, make sure you check out the invite on Facebook for all the information and a free downloadable podcast!  

You'll be hearing a lot more about Queen Sound System for sure in the coming month...

Nu-Retro Rewind: "How To Dance" by Bingoboys


OH MY GOD.  I used to go crazy whenever this song came on the radio in high school.  With the 90s coming back in full force these days, it's only fitting that we take a little retro rewind today and remember the fierceness that was "How To Dance" by Bingoboys featuring Princessa.

You remember this one EQs?  It still sounds uber fresh today.  

I am definitely adding this to my DJ set.

EQTV - Watch "I Need You Tonight" by Professor Green ft. Ed Drewett


This is so nu-retro I love it.  Part of me wants to hate it, but I just cant.  

The video is quite the production too, literally I can't take my eyes off of it.

But I have to ask..."Would Michael Hutchence of INXS be flipping out in his grave if he heard this?"

"I Need You Tonight" is out on April 12th by Professor Green ft. Ed Drewitt
