And here we are 30 years later with yet another edit. This time thanks to our Pal and Disco Boss Mr. Brenden Wesley. The track came with a warning about the edit not being finished and blah blah blah...But seriously, sometimes a perfectionist needs to take a break...and just enjoy a Lazy Sunday. Can you do that Brenden?
Listen: First Choice - Let No Man Put Asunder (Creatures of Habit Edit)

Sometimes however there are tracks that keep the same energy of the original and turn into something that resembles more of a Disco edit than a remix. Well...this has been at least my experience with the remix of Kevin Saunderson's 1988 Classic "Rock 2 the Beat"...I mean you know Laurent Garnier probably listens to that song like everyday of his life. And although it's hard to make a classic better, I'm actually embarrassed to say I really like this Christian Smith And John Selway Remix. For some reason it might be the faster BPM or the reworking of the drum patterns that makes it relevant again. Perhaps is just nolstalgia, and just perhaps this is the essence of Techno. Considering that Kevin Saunderson is remixing stuff like the Presets or Hercules & Love Affair, it's good to see a legend be given a proper remix. I'm not a fan of Selway's stuff all together but this reworking is so damn good I might just have to send him a Christmas card....or like top friend on myspace or something.

If you haven't seen Soulwax's "Part of the Weekend never dies" then you probably don't love Music all that much. If you haven't the faintest idea of What Soulwax or what 2 Many DJ's do/are, this nice little package will without a doubt indoctrinate you into the Gospel that is Nite Versions while making you believe Jesus is actually two brothers from Belgium whose goal is to save the world from bad music. Yeah ok...we really liked the documentary but trust me, we are pretty sure you will too.
"Director Saam Farahmand filmed Soulwax on their recent international dates, capturing all the excitement, chaos and humour of the world tour. Where the Beastie Boys filmed one gig with 50 cameras, Soulwax filmed 120 shows with one camera, in Europe, Japan, US, Latin America and Australia. The result is a snapshot of life on the road with one of the most exciting live bands in the world, and features their friends including 2manydj's, James Murphy & Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem), Erol Alkan, Tiga, Justice, Busy P, So-Me, Peaches, Klaxons and many more in interview, as well as behind-the-scenes footage, and LOTS of music".... go watch it (seriously, now!!!)

Ok...this song is really not their greatest accomplishment, but nonetheless it's still pretty entertaining. What's hilarious though is the video that accompanies it, with James Murphy as a Martial Arts Disco Bully. Well...i guess it just goes to show how cool DFA is right now as they prepare themselves for world domination again (but more on that later). So while we wait for some of DFA's big newcomers to guest at Akult next month (you'll see...), join us at Goodlife tonight for a fun night of Disco with resident DJ Brenden Wesley and new pal John Barrera.

But perhaps the greatest document of the partnership between genres was Blondie's "Rapture" which united the vibrant Downtown scene to the new sounds coming from Uptown. In the song not only does Debby Harry do her own rapping, but she also gives shout outs to her new friends from the hip hop scene (Flash and Fab 5 Freddy). Perhaps the Video is even better, as we actually get to see some of the Artists do Cameos (including the gifted Jean-Michel Basquiat and other Lower East Side scenester). In some ways, the influence between Punk and Hip Hop was actually reciprocated when bands like ESG and Liquid Liquid were sampled by hip hop artists and most memorably when Grandmaster Flash sampled the Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love" (which in itself was a record influenced by Hip Hop). Although these were the conception of a very special time in our culture, the legacy that Hip Hop left on Punk Artists of that era was an important platform for the popularity of the genre in years to come. Here are some of those memorable moments...because it's Lazy Sunday and Lazy Sunday is always classic!
