More Twisted Beats

As long time AVPS readers know I do like my disco sleaze to be, well, a bit sleazy. And it just so happens something of a corker has been lighting up the radar this last couple of weeks. Buy Now's Body Crash is a little bit special. It's the kind of track that would come up to you in night clubs and ask you inappropriate questions about your trousers. If that wasn't enough, check out the video. It's erm ... a bit strange.



There's also this little gem I've been meaning to share for a while. It's hard to believe now but for a brief couple of years The Potteries was a key centre for youth culture during the rave era. Two words were mainly responsible for this: Shelley's Laserdome. Before it got shut by the cops as part of their general clamp down on rave culture kids used to travel from Manchester, such was Shelley's pull. Anyway, here's a tribute to this forgotten Stoke legend from Nathan Jay and Kaya.



Addendum: It's been driving me mad for weeks. In Body Crash can someone tell me what that sample is 21 seconds in?

Didn't know where else to leave a comment, but I thought I'd mention that The Presets is a cracking tune.

It was actually in my 7 song meme, but I couldn't be arsed to finish the post. ;-)

Ah, you've managed to redeem yourself in my eyes ...

BTW samplespotters, the Body Crash sample came to me in a dream ... it's from some hideous party choon Pat Sharp did in the 80s called 'Let's all chant'. Argh, it was almost as bad as his mullet.
