Friday Feel Good Quick Mix ~ Studio 54 Disco Mixes

I wish I could go back in time. Although, I was too young to partake in this era. I could just image and feel the energy in this club. I wounder how the DJ’s from Studio 54 felt during their set. I would be a dream to play at this club.

The crowd outside 254 West 54th Street in New York City on this day in 1927 would have been waiting for the curtain of a Puccini opera. On this day in 1957 or ’67, they would have been waiting for a filming of an episode of Password or maybe Captain Kangaroo. On this day in 1977, however, the crowd gathered outside that Midtown address was waiting and hoping for a chance to enter what would soon become the global epicenter of the disco craze and the most famous nightclub in the world: Studio 54, which opened its doors for the very first time on April 26, 1977.

The impresarios behind Studio 54 were Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, college roommates at Syracuse University who got into the nightclub business after their first venture, a chain of steak restaurants, failed to flourish. But before taking Manhattan by storm and becoming famous for openly and shamelessly excluding all but the most chic, famous or beautiful patrons from their establishment, Rubell and Schrager were running a far less pretentious operation called the Enchanted Garden in the far reaches of Queens. The woman who deserves the lion’s share of the credit for making 54 into the celebrity playground that it became was Carmen D’Alessio, a public-relations entrepreneur in the fashion industry, whose Rolodex included names like Bianca Jagger, Liza Minnelli, Andy Warhol and Truman Capote. Her buzz-building turned the grand opening into a major item in the New York gossip columns, and her later efforts—like having Bianca Jagger ride a white horse into the club for her 30th birthday party—stoked the public’s fascination with Studio 54 even further. Not just the usual celebrity suspects—actors, models, musicians and athletes—but also political figures like Margaret Trudeau, Jackie Onassis and, infamously, White House Chief of Staff Hamilton Jordan came out to be seen during the club’s brief heyday.

While disco reigned supreme on the pop charts, Studio 54 reigned supreme among discotheques, enjoying a golden era that lasted from its opening on this day in 1977 to its closing-night party on February 4, 1980—a party called, appropriately enough, “The End of Modern-day Gomorrah.” Source.

From a musical standpoint, Studio 54 did not seek to break new ground, but rather to feed its patrons a familiar diet of dance hits. Artists like Grace Jones, Donna Summer and Gloria Gaynor all made live appearances there, but Studio 54 belonged to the DJs and to the free entertainment provided by the club’s flamboyant staff and clientele. While disco reigned supreme on the pop charts, Studio 54 reigned supreme among discotheques, enjoying a golden era that lasted from its opening on this day in 1977 to its closing-night party on February 4, 1980—a party called, appropriately enough, “The End of Modern-day Gomorrah.”

Friday Feel Good Quick Mix ~ Saturday Night Fever Party Mix

The Friday Feel Good Quick Mix for Sep. 7.

The Friday Feel Good Quick Mix for this Friday features a bit of the Disco Flavor to it. It’s mixed in with some Freestyle, House, and Rock & Roll. I’m a BIG fan of Rock & Roll. Fry Weezie was in the mood to put on his platform boots, butterfly collar shirt, and show his 3 chest hairs. LOL.. Fry got a little carried away and mixed in “The Brady Bunch Theme Song”. According to DJ Foothill of Fast Lane Magazine, He needs some serious medical attention. LOL He pulled it off.  You just never know what to expect. Enjoy the Mix….

It’s Friday. Turn up the music and get the weekend started.

Please leave a Comment below and tell us what you think or if you have any request to put down in the Mix.

Have a Great weekend and Party Responsibly

Studio 54 Plus 1 More Mix

studio54jeans

Ladies and Gentlemen, here is another Mix for all your Grown Folks. Studio 54 Plus 1 More is another creation that I laid down because of the success of the first one. This mix has bit more of a commercial feel to it. Some of the tracks are a must play at all wedding receptions. Why? Simple, Disco had such a good feel to it and the energy  that people of all ages can dance to. It is simply great music. This mix contains hits , Celebration, Funkytown, We are Family, Boogie Shoes, Turn the Beat Around, etc.

Now, again, for you young DJ’s who are trying to come up, take a LISTEN. All these records were recorded with “LIVE” drums. Drum machines did not exist in the 70’s. That means you have to ride the pitch, fiddle with the platter and pray that your are in sync. This take years of practice and a good ear. So now, zip up your platform boots, put on your polyester butta fly collar Bright Red Dress shirt, and a pair of Tight, Tight, Tiiiiiiiight Bell Bottom pants.  I’m taking you waaaaaaay back one mo gain. Enough said (for now), I give you the “Studio 54 Plus 1 More Mix”. Enjoy…..
