Playlist Preview Spezial: Bobby & Dukie in Schmitz Katze

Bernhard Amelung

Die New Yorker Diskothek Paradise Garage war von 1976 bis 1987 der Schmelztiegel hedonistischer Subkulturen schlechthin. Ihre Gäste gaben sich der ungebremsten Feierlust hin und tanzten bis zum destruktiven Exzess zu Soul, Funk, Disco, Gospel und ersten House-Stücken. Diese Zeit lässt heute Abend das DJ-Duo Bobby & Dukie in Schmitz Katze aufleben. Was auf die Plattenteller kommt, erfahrt ihr in der letzten Playlist Preview des Osterwochenendes.



Diese Tunes hat Bobby dabei

Toney Lee - Reach Up

Massive bassline. I think this was covered by "Phats & Small", so also the young kids will know this song.




Armand van Helden - You don`t know me


A real house classic, dope beat, good disco sample and awesome vocals. Big one!




Chic - I want your love


A night without playing a Chic song is a bad night. So always in my bag and ready for putting the needle on it.




Pacific Blue - Argentina forever


High Energy Disco for the peaktime. People will go crazy.




Gino Soccio - It`s allright


Italo Disco from the master himself - Gino Soccio. Hot bass, perfect dance music. Will play also "Dancer" for sure.



Diese Tunes hat Dukie dabei

Candi Staton - Young Hearts Run Free

This gem had its release in 1976 and is a true disco anthem. The arrangement of this song still keeps me speechless. I could listen to it 24/7.




Gary Byrd and the G.B. Experience - The Crown


"The Crown" has actually been a big hit in the UK. It was produced by the greates himself, Stevie Wonder, and combines spoken word and rapped verses with pure funk and disco grooves. So put on your dancing shoes and shake your hips.




Chicago - Street Player


This one's for the ladies. Everybody knows Kenny Dope's smash hit "The Bomb". That song got its origin in Chicago's "Street Player, produced in 1979, and is a guaranteed dancefloor filler.




Crystal Waters - 100% Pure Love


While listening to this tune you might discover that Crystal Waters is no typical one hit wonder. She is well known for"Gypsy Woman", but to me "100% Pure Love" got way more soul and groove.
Crystal Waters - 100% Pure Love


Claudja Barry - Love For The Sake Of Love


Pure sex. You feelin' it? If not, think about it.
