the return of the disco kid

About a year or so ago I was running a secret blog, so secret I’m not going to spill the name here. The aim was to do a post a day for a year then quit, but I didn’t quite make it. I came away from the blog with a dumb nickname I gave myself (and like all nickmnames you give yourself, it didnt stick) and a burning desire to become a real live DJ and play super cool jams for super cool people. I’m super double stoked that with Fred’s help I made that dream come true as part of the Beginners team. Geez, this is starting to sound like I won some kind of award or I’m about to die. It’s not the case at all! I’m just trying to introduce this slick disco mix I threw together to keep you occupied until October 5th when we roll out the good times at Savoy again! Remember kids..ALL POP/NO RULES!
