Friday Feel Good Quick Mix for Nov. 15, 2013
This Friday we’re taking it back to the good Ol’ days of Disco!!!!! We like to change it up from time to time and this time we went crate digging… All Songs are recorded with live drum playing, meaning it is a lot harder to keep it in sinc (mixing) without riding the Pitch Control on the Turntable. Although, with Serato Scratch Live, we get to see the visible waveforms which helps and makes things a little easier to mix with live drums, but you still need a good ear. Fry kicked it off with Heatwave, one the hottest Disco bands from the 70’s. Band Member, songwriter/keyboardist – Rod Temperton, left the band but continue to write songs for them. Temperton’s hardly a household name – in fact, many Jackson fans will have been unaware of him until recent events led to a few mentions in dispatches – but the veteran Englishman wrote many of Jackson’s most famous songs, including Rock With You, Off the Wall and Thriller. And his contribution to pop doesn’t stop there. Temperton was recruited by Quincy Jones to write for Jackson, and he never looked back. He wrote three songs for Off the Wall and the title track of Thriller, the biggest selling album of all time. Temperton aslo wrote the famous Vincent Price Rap on his way to the studio. As if this wasn’t enough, he penned hits for everyone from Donna Summer to Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin to Anita Baker, Herbie Hancock to good ol’ Quincy Jones, George Benson to LL Cool J. Remember Stomp! by Brothers Johnson or Masterjam by Rufus? That was Temperton as well. Not bad for a self-taught muso whose first job was in a fish factory in Grimsby. Just a little of music History…
Hope you enjoy the Mix..
Have a good weekend and Party Responsibly..
