awesome tuneage, the Smurf will induce idiotic bouncing and juddering from me
I did the initial PR for Fischerspooner when they were on Hell's Gigolo imprint. Casey was an utter scream to work with.
Anyone here a fan of the latin rascals old mix shows - latin freestyle seems to have been missed from the pages of musical history.
Curtis Mantronix, awesome, this thread is full of win.
I'm too young, this isn't electro, but it is a tune
Check out Greg Wilsons www.electrofunkroots.co.uk for a lot of history on the matter.

House music thread?
Ah, memories. Not a lot of people know this, but I used to be an electro club kid in 2002/3, I used to go out three or four times a week, normally during the week, get home at 4am, roll in to my temp job the next morning. Kept it up for quite a long time before burning out quite badly (who'd have thought three hours sleep and a load of cans four times a week would do that?).
I used to be at nag nag nag every week, I knew the people who ran it vaguely so used to get guest list and hang out backstage, other clubs too like kashpoint. At one point The Face did a big feature on 'electroclash' and half the people I knew were in it.
Met some proper famous people, but a really odd mix - Wolfgang Tillmans was there all the time, as was Dale Winton (?!) and the Pet Shop Boys, Cilla Black a few times (again ?!), Yoko Ono once, Marc Almond, crap loads more but it's all a bit of a haze now!
The problem was once I burnt out I didn't go to clubs any more, so I lost contact with nearly all my friends. Hardly keep in touch with anyone from those days. Friends you meet in the club stay in the club, in my experience.
