  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    In the spirit of the Funk and Soul threads...
    This is a prime example of a good remix. Francois K on Sharon Redd Can you handle it. He builds the track using spoken word and instrumentation from the original and when it peaks at 6:40 there ain't nothing I like it. :)

    Love the can you handle it remix, I play that a lot. A few guys seem to lay claim to that mix.

    I like the Danny Krivit remixes and John Morales.

    This is Krivit with the old Love is the message track by MFSB

    I've always been more partial to European disco tunes:

    Moroder is the absolute king. Apart from "I Feel Love", he made some massive four to the floor-fillers.


    Cerrone's "Supernature" is anopther cracking LP-side long disco onslaught.

    I think this is one of the bands that got me interested in synth music.

    One of my favourite European tunes but much later than above:
    Tullio De Piscopo - Stop Bajon

    WTF is happening to this place? Soul, Funk and NOW Disco!?!?!?

    It used to be full of old farts proclaiming their love for Kate Bush!:rolleyes:

    This thread is right up my street....

    Let's start with a newish track that harks back to the day....


    Amazingly it's from the end of last year and not 1979!

    Off for a cup of tea, I will be back........

    Or is the greatest boogie remix the Paul Hardcastle mix of D-Train "you're the one for me"? There's a lot of weak Boogie but the crossover into Freestyle was interesting and kept me in dj work for a while. Buying most releases on Prelude helped.

    Gladys in all her throaty magnificence. Easily the best singer at Motown, just a shame she didn't look like Diana rather than a teacher, then she may have been given more of the best tunes by Berry:


    Something of an acquired taste this and she certainly dances like a drummer:


    Meanwhile back in Bed-Stuy:

    My all time favourite:

    And Walter Gibbons gives it a superb remix; I kind of assume that ths would be played before bringing in the Tom Moulton mix in because it builds so well.

    Just going through my vinyl rips...nice edit of Diana Ross..the piano becomes a little repetitive...could have done with a real Player.

    Ahead of its time...later sampled by Todd Terry so a lot of people think it is a House track.

    The Walter Gibbons mix is looser, jazzier, weirder and not as dancefloor friendly:
