Convergence 2010-07-01 thru -04

Holy crap what a weekend! Running on adrenaline, averaging 4 hours of sleep each "night", drinking staggering amounts of vodka and sweating it all out on the dance floor. Speaking of which, every one of the DJs had the best sets of their lives -- taking full advantage of the record crowds to keep Main Stage going until dawn every single night.

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
send me an angel (remix djo2 edit) - paul oakenfold
heat of the moment (club djo2 edit) - dj manian
smells like teen spirit (warp brothers) - nirvana
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.
