Discopia Fundraiser / Mix
Another bit of shameless self-promotion. Tomorrow night sees the Discopia Fundraiser party at the Admiral on Waterloo St (Glasgow) with guest DJs Billy Woods (Supermax), Andrew Pirie (Melting Pot), Teamy (Wrong Island, Fun Size), David Barbarossa (Curious Curious, Fun Size), and myself and Ally McLeod (Discopia).
Discopia was a disco/house music website we started in 2005 (after already being a print fanzine) and featured folks like Greg Wilson, Daniel Wang, David Mancuso, Nicky Siano, JD Twitch, Alden Tyrell, I-F, Legowelt, Metro Area, Maurice Fulton, Prins Thomas, Cosmo, Daniele Baldelli, Beppe Loda and loads more. We're currently trying to raise funds to bring the website back better than ever, and to start a record label to promote some of the talented local house producers we know. It will be fun - oh yes it will be fun!
More info on Lo-quality and on Facebook.
I've put together a special disco mix to mark the occasion too, 69 minutes of late 70's soulful, uptempo, original disco. You can download it from this link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/k6241y
