We are incredibly stoked to join the extended Motown on Mondays family and announce our new weekly right here in the nation’s capital! Join DJs D-Mac, Jayclue, Rusty B., and special guest DJ Trew (Altered Tapes, MoM Chicago) this Monday, June 16th at Den of Thieves!
The brilliantly named Edit Murphy does a really classic remix of Marvin Gaye with “Mercy,” found on his Motown Edits Vol. 1 release, resulting in a nice dubbed out disco vibe.
Stevie Wonder’s 1971 pop-soul single, “If You Really Love Me,” gets a tasteful re-work by JR.Dynamite. A reminder that warm summer days are not too far off.
Michelle & Kevin’s Wedding at the Airlie Center is one of my all-time favorite weddings!
DC’s Dynamic Superiors were a unique signing to Motown Records in the early 1970s.
The Corradetti Glassblowing Studio and Gallery in Baltimore is a special place. This old brick warehouse was the perfect setting for Kara and William’s wedding and reception on April 20th.
So much for the snow in downtown DC. Eddie Kendricks has a “Date With the Rain” to help you get through this dreary late winter day.
Fave producers Skeewiff bring some holiday joy to the dance floor with “Jingle Bell Thanks,” the first installment of their 12 Days of Xmas Super Soul. That’s right, a song a day for the next twelve days, making for a full-length album of holiday goodies, fully available December 25th.
Recorded in 1970 for Berry Gordy’s Motown label, the “Stoned Love” single features Jean Terrell on vocals INSTEAD of Diana Ross. Diana had left the group to pursue a solo career. It was The Supremes’ biggest hit sans Diana.
I love this re-edited version of Gloria Jones’ “Tainted Love.” I have been playing this here and there recently and it just seems to go over well every time I drop it. Soggy Disco Biscuit did the re-edit and boy does it hum.
