In addition to our annual, patented Strobe-Free Sci-Fi/Fantasy Music Hour, djnoise asked me to do a "(very loosely themed) retro" set on Friday this year. Naturally I agreed and here is the result...
wild boys - duran duran
let's dance (djo2 edit) - rabbit in the moon
erotic city (djo2 edit) - berlin
white horse (djo2 edit) - laidback
sos - message in the bottle (hi-tack djo2 edit) - filterfunk
call on me (eric prydz vs retarded funk) - eric prydz
bring the noise (sfaction edit) - public enemy
one night in bangkok (club djo2 edit) - vinylshakerz
dj (djo2 edit) - david bowie
somebody to love (moonbootica djo2 re-edit) - boogie pimps
bizarre love triangle (crystal method's csii) - new order
new year's day (ferry corsten extended vocal djo2 edit) - u2

heaven is a place on earth (pascal 12" djo2 edit) - soda club
Later, as the eastern sky began to lighten (I assume, since I was nowhere near a window), it was open-decks-slash-tag-team. Just as it seemed the room was clearing out and we'd call an end to the night, the last room parties shut down and we got a sudden surge of diehard revelers. For the first time in many years, djnoise and I went head to head. My memory isn't clear, but the tracks I recall contributing...
don't call me baby (original - edit) - madison avenue
move in my direction - bananarama
crying at the discotheque (illicit) - alcazar
poker face - lady gaga
barbie girl (radio) - aqua
1999 - adeva
On Saturday night, despite equipment failure both before and during, the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Hour culminated in a conga line of hundreds of people led by a robot. My (all video) selections included in no particular order...
8-bit trip - rymdreglage
do you want to date my avatar - felicia day
back door lover - du jour
go speed racer go (djo2 edit) - ali dee and the deekompressors
big girl (you are beautiful) - mika
intergalactic - beastie boys
she blinded me with science - thomas dolby
It'll be a long year to wait until CON 2011.
