Soulwax - Nite Versions
Here's a few classics from Soulwax off of their 2005 album, Nite Versions, which was a remix of their Any Minute Now album from earlier in the year. It's hard to believe, but the Dewaele brothers really did rework the original quite a bit, achieving that rare feat of a great remix album in its own right.
Why Soulwax today? Because they're doing a live set in Philly tonight tonight tonight! Not only that, but we're also getting a DJ set from their alter ego, 2 Many DJs, along with Dave P and JDH. This is one of the final stops of the Radio Soulwax tour, a rare chance to catch these guys live in the U S of A, doing the Nite Versions stuff. In fact, this is the first ever appearance of Soulwax in Philly, brought to you by the good folks who bring you Making Time. To bring it all full circle, you can learn all the basics about tonight from my preview in this week's Philadelphia Weekly!
-That's right, people, Pound for Pound continues his journalistic advance. This week, I have a big profile of my bol Naeem and Spank Rock, in advance of their show at the Trocadero this Friday night (check the sticky later tonight at the top of the page). Also, I have a preview of two poilitical events in the city, a reading by my bol Frank Rich and a fundraiser for LitPac at the Khyber, and one for Digable Planet's Cee Knowledge show at World Cafe Live. Cheah! That's four stories in one issue. Can't stop, won't stop.
-As I congragulate myself profusely in this post, let me also congragulate reader, commenter and friend EO on her new little baby, Talulah Grace. She was an abandoned kitty that EO took in and gave a home. She's the second most beautiful cat I've ever seen, a distant second to the gorgeous Jezebel C, who was like a feline Grace Kelly, Scarlett Johansson and Audrey Hepburn wrapped up in a little hipster, kosher, cigar-making package and I miss her. *single teardrop* I am so happy for EO, as this is such a good thing that she has done by rescuing this little girl. I have had the pleasure of meeting her and can say that she is sweet, a kisser and a skinny minny. I look forward to seeing her grow up and get fat and happy to make up for the tough times so far.
-Some disco-not-disco and Miami bass (or ghettotech maybe) tomorrow, plus some politcal outrage and whatever else comes to mind.
