Bottom Forty

Bottom Forty is a mirror ball in New York, a basement in Chicago, a cruise in L.A. and a night in the desert.

Bottom Forty Welcomes… Hyasynth!

We’re elated to be announcing our newest member of the Bottom Forty team. First coming onto our scope with our most well received podcast, and then bringing absolute heat to the Bottom Forty Interior Revival party, this gal has been blazing across the city leaving behind a trail of pure happiness, love and body twirling house music, and it’s that energy and joy for DJ’ing that we love so much. This gal is none other than HYASYNTH!

There’s an important statement to be made here as well. Bottom Forty is a queer collective, but there is no need to confuse the word queer with gay. Up until today we may have been all homoz, and there was a reason. We wanted to show that homo DJ’s in this city can do so much more than turn out the latest radio tunes or tribal circuit parties. We have shown that, and while queer to me really only translates to “friendly, ally, or in this together”, we welcome in our newest member lovingly, because above all, top-notch music selecting, love and inspiration and bringing our dancing community together is paramount to us.

To celebrate, we just went live with Hyasynth’s live recording from the first Bottom Forty!

Doctor Boogie

Don Downing’s “Doctor Boogie” gets a rework/nu-disco groove from the Brazilian team of Carlos Francisco & Jefferson Celestino. This slo-mo disco track from 1978 boogies its way in a hypnotic groove coming in at 99 BPM. These guys will fit right in with the likes of Get Down Edits and Luxxury along with others on the low end. This free download provided as a kick off to a Brazilian DJ collective called Juicy! Agency, get it and dance with your favorite sexy somebody. Enjoy.

As you probably already know, I’m a big fan of both the Seattle Innerflight Music crew and Luke Mandala. Luke just released a great new EP on Innerflight today–check it out! Great tunes and went straight to my shopping cart at Beatport (http://www.beatport.com/release/infinite-inspiration-ep-feat-molly-ponkevitch/1263170).

Favorite so far is the original mix of “Snap Intuit” featuring Molly Ponkevitch.
