Friday – House remix. 03/02/12. Brass Knuckles – Lie To You (WhiteNoize remix)

Friday’s child looked innocent,

Would I Lie To You Baby? is the answer to every question ever posed to Charles & Eddie by their past girlfriends. These two make Bert and Ernie look straight. Whatever their sexuality, I’m sure this song got them a lot of T&A (but most likely A).

Not enough is known about Charles Pettigrew’s life, other than studying yazz vocals with Ron Burgandy (and claiming to be straight). He unfortunately succumbed (don’t you think succamb should be a word?) to cancer in 2001, so we will never know what he may have lied about.

Eddie, however, has a whole lot of WTF’s that need a Would I Lie To You? answer. The one-time Scientologist’s first band was formed with Cliff Burton of Metallica and Mike Bordin of Faith No More (at the age of 12 mind you), he helped produce tracks for 2 Live Crew and The Dust Brothers, not to mention S Club 7! Now he is one half of the Electro duo The Polyamorous Affair with his (female) wife.

We all had a little guilty pleasure in this song in the early 90’s, and I wouldn’t lie to you about the fact I have lent my vocals to this song a few times (alone, in the shower, in the mountains, in fucking tibet). This is one of those songs you ‘accidentally’ put on your one-night-stand iTunes playlist and hope she is drunk enough to love it or too tired to notice.

Brass Knuckles have smashed their way through the faces of many a club goer with their take on this 1992 R&B classic. The Miami based trio have replaced Charles & Eddie by the less androgynous Chipmunks, whilst still holding true to the original as the riffs melt off Nu-disco electro synths smoother than lamb in a slow cooker. The solid beats are as strong as Charles’s personal trainer and whilst the tempo is raised significantly, it rubs as gentle as Eddie’s handshake. Check out the Brass Knuckles Lie To You EP for two more decent remixes.

WhiteNoize has beefed up Brass Knuckles remix with a steroidal injection that is worth lying to the federal jury about. With groovy glitched up vocals that speak lies of better days and a darker faster bassline, this remix is one that will be played for years to come. If you are looking for a strong, yet fun and happy remix to give you that extra burst of energy after dropping Bingo Players – Cry (Just A Little) to follow the ironic trend of cheesy 90’s anthems turned insanely awesome dance tracks, this is the remix you want. Would I lie to you? How dare you question me bitch!

Friday – Disco House remix. 20/01/12. George Benson – Gimme The Night (Sulli5657 Jammin mix)

Friday’s child had a seat at the main table,

You have had your days, or more likely, they have had you. From the annoying phone habits of the cubicle next to you to the 10 minutes of freedom you have on the bathroom every day, its time you took back the night, and being Friday, its your god given right.

So once you demand the time off from your respective other (or more likely, politely ask permission), it’s time to go make mistakes, coz when there’s music in the air and there’s lovin everywhere, just make sure to never tell anyone what happened (except your local barista the next morning), and be sure to clean up that lovin, UV lights catch EVERYthing.

Tomorrow, when you pass a busking child, I bet you’ll pretend not to be impressed just to avoid giving them your hard earned cash (that you threw away the previous night), be aware though, that in ten years time, these kids may either be playing at the Big Day Out reunion concert (today was the final BDO in New Zealand), or giving ZJ’s (if you have to ask what a ZJ is, you can’t afford it) to support their crack addictions, your support now could help influence their path.

George Benson’s first paid performance was at the tender age of 7, with nothing but a Ukulele and dogged determination. He dropped off his Ukulele and picked up his act with the help of legendary pioneers Miles Davis and Quincy Jones, with their help he rose to the heights of the R&B scene (I’m talking about when R&B was sexy, with the body of Jazz & the heart of Soul). Pulling a Fresh Prince out of his ass, Jones helped propel Benson to the top of the 1980 Billboard charts with Give Me The Night.

Sean Sullivan & Cody Nasir aka Sulli & 5657, hailing from the biggest little city on earth, Reno, have upped the stakes and doubled down with their impression of Benson’s Disco era hit. Right off the deck, the first hand they play is a strong one, with an uptempo bongo and high-hat drum track that alerts us to down our Red Bull, and entices you to keep riding your luck. Stuttered electro chords pepper the table as the ante is raised with perfectly quantized vocal samples that are intermittently glitched for added style. The first break gives you a chance to breathe, but there are no bluffs here as it builds back into the chorus with smooth delays and high pass filters, unleashing your inner disco beast as the beat drops. Everyone’s a winner tonight, except hipsters and Jersey Shore fans, they don’t deserve music this good.
