What it do people! On this week’s #WhamBamPow we’re watching Homefront. It’s streaming on Netflix. So many things to look forward to based on the poster alone. First off, Winona Ryder is up in this piece?!?!?! Second, Sylvester Stallone wrote this mug so I hopes to Gawwwd he made a call and got his bruh Frank Stallone to drop an old skool F-Stilly joint on the soundtrack! Third, what the hell these two fools looking at?!?!? My guess? It’s Winona Ryder rising from the ashes like a phoenix.

PURPLE CHAMPAGNE

This past Thursday night I was allowed to DJ at The Short Stop in Echo Park. I was beyond honored to be asked.  I didn’t take it lightly. My job is going to be to make sure you have a good time? Start stretching Ricky. Get your face right! The theme of the night was “Good Vibes” so that was the goal of the playlist. I knew this bitch would start with The Jackson’s Can You Feel It and end with Stevie’s As. It’s that journey in between that you gotta get right. My friend/comedian Joe Wagner told me, “It’s like putting together a set.” I told him “It’s like raising a child!”

My goal was to have people with one hand in the air, one hand on their hearts. A sea of rhythmic Redd Foxx’s. The final playlist turned out to be a time traveling dedication to Chicago, Los Angeles, NY Gay Discos, Mí Familia, Mí Genté, Old Black People, F@ckin’!, Sweatin’, Mary J. Blige break ups, The Sexy People, The Ugly People, Not The Pretty People, Soul Clappin’, and Everything That Is On The One. I called it Purple Champagne* just in case you needed that free hand in the air to hold up a little something for yourself and you made sure it’s that good good cause why we bullshittin’? Thanks to everyone who came out that night friends and strangers and all. If you weren’t there to get your shaky groove on with with us go ahead and bump this wherever you may be now in the order the story was intended to be told starting with a simple question, can you feel it?

Can You Feel It by The Jacksons

This is a declaration.  When Michael yells at you in rhythm? You listen.

Disco Nights (Rock Freak) by G.Q.

Exhibit A that the argument against disco is tired.

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough (Larry Levan’s Garage Mix) by Inner Life feat. Jocelyn Brown

Frankie Knuckles would play this during his sets at one of the first discos in New York, The Gallery. All 10+ minutes of it.  

A Lover’s Holiday by Change

One of the best under appreciated, underrated, uncelebrated holidays.

Dance (Club Mix) by Earth People

Chicago House classic. Sweating should begin here. 

Blow by Beyoncé

A Sex Champagne Retro Funk Taste.

Honey by Erykah Badu

This that Quick Get Your Composure and Respect given to DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown aka Queen Badu musick.

You Bring Me Joy by Mary J. Blige

For the fools who question Mary.

F**K All Nite by JAY Z

F**Kin’. All night.

17 Days by Prince

YEAH SO PRINCE DON’T POST HIS MUSIC ONLINE. WE AIN’T MAD AT HIM. GO HOLLER AT THAT TRACK ON ITUNES OR AMAZON. IT’S A FRIEND OF OURS.

As by Stevie Wonder

Religious Gospel Soul Love As We Say Goodbye.

Boom. That’s what’s up y’all.

*On the actual night I might’ve been calling my playlist “Black People Fuck Music” to everyone at The Short Stop and the message spread pretty quickly:
