Live @ Hard Day Of The Dead 2012

Hard Day Of The Dead Tracklist

You may have noticed that one of our favorite things about DJing is that we get to teach about the history of dance music. So our set last Saturday at Hard Day Of

The Dead Festival in L.A. was an exciting opportunity for us to reach and teach the new generation of fans in the U.S. We were a little nervous considering we were really the only artists playing anything soft, slow or old at the festival so we spent hours preparing. Our hard work really paid off as the kids went nuts through most of our set culminating in us dropping Ronnie Hudson’s classic “West Coast Poplock”.

In general the twitter response was great, but this one was the best…

Kyle, we can’t thank you enough for asking this question. You see The chorus of California Love is really a quote from Ronnie Hudson’s 1982 version. The best part though was in putting this post together I also learned that Roger Troutman of Zapp fame was also on the 2Pac & Dr Dre hit from 1995. This whole music thing is kinda like school and that’s why do what we do… GOTTA TEACH THE KIDS!

Unfortunately we didn’t record the set, but here’s a tracklist for the curious ones:
No Regular Play – Birdfeathers
Justin Martin – The Gurner (Tanner Ross is too high to fly the spaceship Mix)
Wolf + Lamb vs. Soul Clap – Weekend Affair
Slow Hands & Tanner Ross – All The Same
Recloose – Don’t Get Me Wrong
Sano – Chupa!
Fax Yourself – Strut Your Techno Stuff
Thodoris Triantafillou – You Can Do It
Nick Monaco – Don’t Hate Create
A Number Of Names – Shari Vari
James Curd – Yellow Magic
Mr. V – H.O.U.S.E (Filipe Narciso’s Late Night Mix)
Sumo ft. Clarisse Muvemba – Lovebeat (Dub)
George Kranz vs. Kraftwerk – Din Daa Daa
Ronnie Hudson – West Coast Pop Lock

Episode 103: Richy Ahmed’s 145 Clarence Road Afterhours Mix

We’ve known Richy Ahmed for awhile. You may know him to. He’s everyone’s favorite Geordie with the tough guy looks but teddy bear heart. Lately he’s been spinning records all over the world, but when we first met him probably 3 years ago now we all were just hanging out. And while first meetings can become hazy I think it was actually in a very special place in London. The house at 145 Clarence Road. So when he hit us up personally to present his mix from the last party at this legendary place for our podcast we were honored he thought of us. I mean after all the adventures we all had there it may just be the most appropriate podcast we’ve presented yet…

Here’s what Richy had to say:

For many, 145 Clarence Road, in Clapton, East London was UK capital’s nearest equivalent to Wolf + Lamb’s legendary Marcy Hotel. Over the years this unassuming East London bachelor pad has done more for British dance music culture than any other address in town. Over the last seven years it has been home to so many of our good friends and fellow DJs; past housemates have included Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Kenny Glasgow, Luca C, Will Rebels, Ginger Will, Ben ‘Poundtown’ Pound and of course Richy Ahmed. Oh and less we forget Billie Jean the house cat.

This mix was recorded during the ‘closing party’ of the legendary location in June, where Richy had lived for the last two years. His effervescent blend of sun-dappled disco, house and hip-hop captures the after-hours vibe perfectly, and evokes bittersweet memories of long standing friendships forged during endless after-parties, great times, hilarious banter and even better music.

This mix represents the end of an era. Seldom has one house meant so much to so many people.
