Ahead of their third birthday History of NYC House & Disco blowout, we got the Feelings lads to run through some of the tracks that shaped them. Expect fire disco and house selections.
Dinosaur L - Go Bang
Just over three years ago, we conceived the idea of feelings and decided to get a few good friends together and road test our collective tastes to see, how we fit in real terms. Kasra, Ryan, Eniz/Deniz and myself took some stacked bags down to a Dalston basement and go twisted playing records for about 8 of our friends. This song reminds me of those early get togethers between us.
Steely Dan - Peg
Our first proper party was a day and night party in Hackney Wick. With it being an outdoor canal-side space we had balearic thoughts in mind, we invited down Ibiza legend Alfredo and everyone was getting heavily eclectic with their selection. With it being our first party a lot of people weren't sure what to expect. This song dropped and everyone got pretty wild.
Art of Noise - Moments in Love
Our second proper party, we took over an East End strip club with Nicky Siano who we have joining us again for our third birthday this weekend with you. Lights on, Kasra plays his final song. A special one! Rumour has it Kasra was kidnapped by some friendly Columbians after this moment...
Mike Dunn presents Mr. 69 - "Phreaky MF "
Our first birthday a packed out warehouse space. Mike Dunn's first show in well over 10 years. A mic and this track. Phreaky MF m8!
Unlimited Touch - "Reach Out" (Everlasting Lover)
A stone cold NYC classic. I ALWAYS FOOOKIN' PLAY IT!!
Ultra Nate - "Free" (Mood II Swing remix)
Hits like this can go two ways, lead balloon or collective ecstasy. Both times we've had Mood II Swing play, firstly at their FIRST EVER DJ SHOW a couple of years back at Corsica Studios and again on our Dimensions Festival boat party last summer. Both times, unbelievable!
Florian Kupfer - "DISCOTAG"
When it gets hot, it gets dropped.
Billy Idol - "Eyes Without A Face"
We stripped it right back this last NYE and took over a tiny basement with the family and some special guests. With it being NYE things got going early and Gary and Mandy got to the party early. I have pretty vivid memories of this one getting dropped really early in the night with a lot of rolling eyes.
Kasra V - "Myth" (Dream To Science Remix)
After a little while of us doing parties we got the itch to spread our wings a little further and got the label itch. Kasra V a good friend of ours and has played pretty much everyone of our parties so was a natural choice for our first release. Following spending untold time speaking to Ben 'Cozmo D' Cenac on the subject of Dream 2 Science and having them play, I had to chance asking for a remix too! Luckily he obliged and here you have it.
Tears for Fears - "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"
Ryan and I play b2b a lot both at Feelings and as well as a lot of all night sessions at other parties. This. Is. THE. Ender.
Feelings 3rd Birthday will feature New York legend, Nicky Siano, get your tickets here.
