Hot Foot STOMP


I’m having trouble embedding it, but I’ve made a new 8tracks set for the event we’re running tonight, Hot Foot Stomp. I’m quite excited about this: we’re 3 women running a dance because we LOVE dancing and music and all that stuff.

This set began with Michael Gamble’s Rhythm Serenaders because I bought their e.p. and it’s just so great. SO great. It’s exactly what I’ve been waiting for. I wish that band was in my town. Or even just my country. That song King David gave me a hook for a set that just wasn’t coming together. Now I feel like I can DJ tonight with a good beginning place: one great, swinging song by a modern band. Yay!

This is the music in the 8tracks set (but of course I won’t just put this playlist on at the dance and let it play):

  1. Jay McShann! YES! Oh man. You are making me want to get off my arse and DJ some more. Good news is that my Swedish class isn’t on this coming week (same night as social dance here) so I can probably play.
