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.

Summer Groove of the Evening/Sonny Fodera/Yasmeen/”Caught Up”

This past Friday night, those Philly Mixtape vibes were front-and-center for an always deep and delicious set provided by by deep house guru, DJ Sonny Fodera

And while it’s easy to spill iced summer music tea by the pool about how Mr. Fodera just keeps serving us with the deep heat–meaning and everything off of his latest red-hot offering, Frequently Flying, sometimes we just have to let the fucking music play. 

So, while you add every gummy groove from Mr. Fodera’s latest into your bikini-and-stilettos inspired playlists (go here), you must lose yourself in “Caught Up,” a divinely deep standout featuring sexy, stellar vocals from Mizz Yasmeen. In headphones fact, this track is so fucking hot, that the world renowned DJ opened his set with it this past weekend. 

All meaning…go.

Groove of the Evening/Worthy/”Keep Me Up”

In spite of it all, let’s just crank up that fucking music that makes us go fucking crazy, though…in the most delightful way possible, of course. 

And if we’re really feeling spontaneous, let’s order a big ol’ pepperoni pizza to go along with those grooves, because that slice of life is just what Worthy is about to serve up during his impending Coda takeover this Friday night alongside his beat bud, Oliver Dollar. 

Before they show their love in the City of Brotherly Love, Mr. Worthy stopped by Philly Mixtape for a good old-fashioned dance music tea that’s all set for your Thursday pleasure, but in the meantime, take a moment to unwind and get to know his funkdafied flow that’s all up in his latest floor burner, “Keep Me Up.”

And as you get down, always keep in mind that as long as we’ve got music…we got this and so much more. 

Let’s ride.
