Today is the sixth week in the non-rock 12″ singles played alphabetically series. The letters F, G, and H are up. Every track vetted for joy. As for re-edits, The Fantasy edits Prince’s bassistBrown Mark’s band Mazarati ‘Jerk Out’. Hauke Freer edits Focus guitarist Jan Akkerman’s ‘She’s So Divine’ Amsterdam 1979. Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra brings in Brazilian artist Arthur Verocai, an artist worth checking out on his own. Eddy Grant, whose career spanned decades and genres, appears in his 1978 period, 4 years before his world-conquering hit ‘Electric Avenue’. Luxury edits Foreigner’s 1981 mega-hit to great effect. Andi Hanley edits Annette’s 1988 track ‘Dream 17’. Chicago’s Ron Hardy does two edits for his edits series: Willie Hutch’s 1982 and Baby Huey’s 1971 tracks.

Today is the 6th week in the non-rock 12″ singles played alphabetically series. Today we cover the letters D and E. The show starts with a DJ Spun re-edit of the 1978 Bombers track ‘The Mexican’. The other notable re-edits are DW Edits Undisputed Truth edit of Lil’ Red Riding Hood, Ebony Cuts with Carrie Lucas Tic Toc, and Tee Scott’s edit of The Joneses Sugar Pie Guy. There are deep minimal tracks in this show as well as disco edits, or even straight-up disco/soul, such as the Martin L. Dumas Jr track. Things get chilled out with Dos Palos and Tony Esposito, and experimental with EYE. Lots of sounds, all stirred together and caramelized for you.

The fourth week in the non-rock 12″ singles played alphabetically series completes the letter ‘C’ and starts ‘D’. If an artist appears to not belong, that is because the 12″ series starts with D and the single has multiple artists on it. There are several awesome tracks on their own, plus covers and re-edits. The Creams cover Joe Moks. The Police are re-edited by DJ Harvey, Donny Hathaway by Dimitri From Loisada, J.J. Cale by Dirty Sound System, Pink Floyd by danyb, the Cast of South Pacific by Disconnection, Nina Simone by Disco Tech. Big names, nice re-edits. Chicks On Speed sing on the DJ Hell track, cool percussive sounds on the Discodeine track.

The third week in the non-rock 12″ played alphabetically series completes the letter ‘B’ and starts the letter ‘C’. The scope of the sounds is fairly wide, and hidden within are Sun Ra, Elvis and (the song) Pipeline re-edits (The Cosmologist, Pepe California, and Cratebug). Comic Kids and Chari Chari give tracks that have stuck in my head, but mostly I have enjoyed the trip though these 2 hour-long segments.

The second week in the alphabetical non-rock 12″ series continues the letter ‘B’, which will be completed next week. The show starts off with an Al Kent re-edit of Dave Baker, covers some early 00s electro courtesy of Bangkok Impact and later the the 3 Crème Eclipse 12″s. We go way back to 1979 with Black Devil, pleasantly revisit 2005 with Baxendale, then settle in with electronic artists/re-edits of the last decade.

Today begins a new series ’12” played alphabetically’ which will not cover labels I buy lots of releases from, instead covering the one-offs, played alphabetically by artist. If the 12″ is VA, the title is the alphabetical hook. I love this type of series because it is fun to wrestle a fluid show out of such a constraint, and I usually uncover new favorites while re-evaluating old finds. Today’s show brought me a lot of joy, which I hope you experience, especially as it goes live on Valentines Day 2023.
