Week three and it’s the return of rhythm to Summer Fridays mixes. It’s also the return of ace artwork contributor Greg Morris who offers up this image of a super fun party time. Just what is happening here? There is a lot of pointing going on. They sure had fun on the Upper West Side back in the non-specific ’80s, eh? That’s what I’m imagining here at least.
As to the music here in, it might get this bunch of stiffs out on the dancefloor. (Maybe.) I think this one turned out really well, with one bit of beat-matching that actually doesn’t suck. Well I don’t think so. Lotta good stuff here, new and old. Hope it livens up any party you might attend.
