i’ve been a casual green velvet fan since i heard danny tenaglia‘s remix of flash on renaissance ibiza all those years ago, and even though he’s quiet a lot of the time, you can truly call him a legend. he’s just been interviewed on resident advisor following his performance at bloc weekend, and he seems as mad as ever. well, maybe not mad, but certainly eccentric.
“I had a dream a while ago, before the election started, and in the dream, it was Hilary Clinton. And she was talking, telling us all on TV how we’d been warned, talking about Revelations, and the end of time. So I thought, from that point, that Hillary would be president. I thought the dream was foreseeing, like, the last war.
“But then, Obama beat her, and I was relieved. I was like, ‘oh, there was nothing in that dream at all.’ But all of a sudden, she became secretary of state – and I was like, ‘oh no, this is not good.’ Because she was there, in that dream, talking about revelations and the final war.”
he’s got a remix of tiga‘s shoes coming out soon, which i can’t wait to hear.
elsewhere on ra i notice that trentemøller has a mix album coming out. if it’s anything like his 2006 essential mix (and the article suggests it will be) it’ll be a delightfully dark and moody affair that is both entertaining and enlightening.
