Curveballs is a new series asking DJs to pick a head-turner that goes against the grain in their set. Today’s guests are Gilles and James from Secretsundaze, the 16-year-strong London party and label with their debut solo EP out 15th June on Phonica.
Kid Creole And The Coconuts – ‘Stool Pigeon’ (12” Mix) [ZE Records, 1982]
“As curveball as a no. 8 UK chart hit can be. Pure party jam with killer bass, oddball vocals, searing horn sections and guitar solo from Nile Rodgers. Infectious 1982 pop record from August Darnell, sounding somewhere between Talking Heads and Prince. Ha cha cha chaa.”
Secretsundaze host two parties at OFFSonar this weekend:
15th June: Joy Orbison, Antal, Dekmantel Soundsystem, FunkinEven b2b Byron The Aquarius, Lakuti
17th June: Ryan Elliot, Tama Sumo and Chaos in the CBD
