Dance to the Musizika: Summer Fridays 9.7

sf-9.7

I remember back in 1999 when West Nile Virus hit NYC, during that ultra-hot July, they sprayed down the streets of South Williamsburg along Kent at like 2AM. There were cars leading the way a few blocks ahead, blaring horns and warnings to “GET INSIDE NOW WE ARE SPRAYING INSECTICIDE.” It was like some sort of post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie. Scary! Thankfully, Zika hasn’t really hit here, but for my friend Kelly who lives in Miami it’s very real. Weirdly, according to her, the fear has manifested itself into a musical subgenenre of dance music they’re calling “zika wave” which is somewhere between Belgian “new beat” and Italo? Or it could just be a joke on this party flyer. Either way it was her inspiration for this week’s cover art. I think the “9,7” is made out of mosquitos?

I didn’t put any New Beat on here but there is a little Italo (Chromatics) and I wanted to put the great new Radio Dept song “Swedish Guns” on here so everything is pretty much either dance or dub. Also, I dipped into Sandinista! for a second week in a row. Please enjoy, whether you’re wearing a mosquito net suit for not.
