Rewerk Wednesday/Morgan Page

“You do your body werk…”

Yes, that’s exactly what we all do whenever the hard pumping beats provided by renowned American house DJ Morgan Page get to bumpin’ and grindin’ on the floor….

…..and this Saturday night he’s about to serve up all of it with a takeover at Premier Nightclub in Atlantic City

Born and raised in Vermont, Grammy Award nominated Morgan Page kickstarted his life into the world of electronic music at the oh, so young age of 12. (Don’t we all?) A few years down the road, his mixes caught the ears of disc jockeys at local radio stations around the area and soon Page would really make a name for himself after grabbing a key slot on the University of Vermont’s top station. Oh, yeah, he was also still in high school at the time. Yes. 

It was from that career jump where Page really expanded his thirst for knowledge in the dance music universe (there’s just so much!), and it wasn’t long before he took an internship at the Plastic City dance label. And from there, well, the rest is pure strobe-lit history. Besides releasing a buffet of 12′ inch singles beginning in 2000 and still going strong today (his latest E.P., Breaking Borders, just came out a few days ago), he would also release close to a dozen albums over the next almost two decades that would serve out hit-after-hit including “Fight For You” co-starring Lissie, “Call My Name” with Tyler James and this year’s “Other Girl” featuring Rayla and “Fight My Way” with Moses Keenan. Play them all. 

But perhaps Page’s most shining piece of floor art is his throbbing and pumping rewerk of “Body Work,” a groovy 2012 number he dished out with everyone’s favorite twin sister music duo, Tegan and Sara. And although any of Page’s above listed accomplishments and club burners are certainly a good enough reason to be curious as to hear what he’s going to throw down this weekend in AC, there’s just something (okay, everything) about this remix that will make you put in that werk, hunty. 

Hey, there’s a reason why Morgan Page held down a three-year residency in Las Vegas…and it’s all going to be on display at Premier Nightclub on Saturday night. Get those tickets and then let’s fucking dance...because we must.

Forgot About Friday/Eiffel 65/Alice Deejay/ATC

Sigh……..anybody else really, really miss the music of the late ’90s/early ’00s? If not, you will once you try to figure out just what the fuck happened to Eiffel 65, Alice Deejay and everyone’s favorite “la la la la la” dance music maestros, ATC in this week’s edition of Forgot About Friday

Peep it up and dance it out. 

Eiffel 65/”Blue”  Yo, listen up here’s a story about how Eiffel 65 had one annoyingly delightful dance track out in ’99….and then they were never heard from again. 

That is until Flo Rida incorporated pieces of “Blue” into his Billboard Top Five single, “Sugar,” co-starring the lovely Ms. Wynter Gordon in 2009. 

Alice Deejay/Who Needs Guitars Anyway?  “Do you think you’re better off alone” and “Talk to me.” It was those ten words that made up Alice Deejay‘s dance smash, “Better Alone” and it was also those ten words that took over our lives for a few months back-in-the-day. Plus, those 2000 produced synths and that beat are still just as delightfully cheesy as ever. Wait, no they’re not…but we still live for “Better Off Alone”…anyway. 

Admit it, you still do. 

ATC/”Around the World(La La La La La)” No words…..just those opening bells and all sorts of “la la la la la’ing” all damn disco day
