It's Friday . . . Let's Dance



I was at a loss as to what kind of track to play this week, as, although I'm never bored with "dance music",  as in the 80s and 90s big bass and 4/4 beats definition of the term, it was getting a bit obvious, a bit, shall we say, repetitive and as any cheesy quaver who doesn't suffer from memory loss can tell you, as a result of Clause 58 of the 1994 Criminal Justice Act you can go to jail for the playing of repetitive beats or at the very least have your equipment confiscated. At the moment that wouldn't be a very good idea as the gear will be needed in a couple of weeks time.

I thought,  that after spending more than half the working week "dan sarf " it may be time to redress the balance with a bit of northern soul. I have a couple of of belters in the wings that I want to feature but neither actually feels like a Friday kind of tune.

There has been a track which I have played a few times over the last couple of weeks which fits the bill nicely.

So with the distinct possibility of stepping on Mr H's toes,  albeit not intentionally, I'm going to post a bit of disco on a Friday. The Ghost Of Electricity  has probably posted this song in the past as part of his excellent Friday Disco series. So sincere apologies Davy, but it must have been a while ago and I think that the track really should be aired again.

I just love the acoustic guitar and the lazy but impossible not to start to move or should that be groove to tempo of the track.

My friday night commute home (100+ miles on the train) was much improved by shuffle throwing up Massive Attack's Protection. I always forget about that.

So I'm in chill out mode right now...

have a great weekend!

Same to you Simon.

I love the Mad Professor dub of Protection, although the original is none to shabby either.
