LOLLIPOP’S ROLLER DISCO ARMAGEDDON

00:0000:00
RollerDiscoArmageddon2700.jpg


Before drum machines, before MIDI, and before samplers there were beautiful records created by talented musicians.  During the period of ’78-’79, the foundation for the soon to emerge Hi-NRG, Boogie & House genres were being laid.  Lollipop’s Roller Disco Armageddon is a musical snapshot of this period - taken just barely before “cool” became cliché.  This mix perfectly captures the glossy, last gasps of a genre soon decimated by commercialization.

Of course, no official roller disco soundtrack would be complete without soaring, symphonic strings, scratchy guitar, plucky bass and sexy, growling horns.  The unique experience of the amplified disco sound in the roller rink is also accurately re-created with the assistance of a custom-programmed acoustic reverb mirror.  This podcast mix faithfully highlights songs that packed the skating rink floor and raised the energy level through the roof.  

With an incredible playlist mostly exiled from pop-disco radio programs, many of these “one hit wonders” and the rare 12 inch versions had to be lovingly transferred from my personal vinyl collection to authentically recreate a magical Saturday night at the legendary Hub Axle Roller Rink.

I know you’ll enjoy this mix.  For some of you, it’ll bring back heart-warming memories and for those who missed it, here is your contextually-correct opportunity to experience it for the first time.  Lace 'em up tight – it’s an “All Skate Armageddon!”

LOLLIPOP’S 1982 TOP TUNE MEDLEY

00:0000:00


DJ LOLLIPOP (American DJ & Producer):
"Wow!!! I can't believe how many years have gone by since this landmark medley was created.  This was the second vinyl bootleg that I released.  It was released in January 1983.

At the time, I was spinning in Chicago at three different clubs… a straight hipster club, an elite gay club and an urban downtown club.  I loved it!  Each club had it’s own format/hits and very few tunes crossed over.  I loved playing down-tempo funk and R&B at a huge straight/urban club on Michigan Ave, pop and disco at an intimate straight/white club on Division Street and high energy and new wave at a chic, trendy gay club on Oak Street. 

Back in the early 80's, the nightclubs in Chicago did not cater to mixed groups of clientele yet… but the music did start to bring diverse groups of people together.  Some tunes would cross-over from one crowd to another like The Message by Grandmaster Flash which I played for months in the black club before it crossed over to white clubs, or Native Love by Divine which was a smash at the gay club before it crossed over to the straight clubs. In hindsight, the black clubs and gay clubs helped make songs pop crossovers.  I kept this in mind when arranging the song order.

I tried something new in this production – I used every dance hit that came out in 1982 –every single one of them. Black, white, straight, gay – any tune that made a crowd dance – regardless of it’s makeup, was included.  This led to some very eclectic (and surprisingly fun) song transitions.  Like the 1981 & 1987 medleys, this was all done with a pair of Technics 1200’s, a TEAC two track recorder, a razor blade and miles and miles of magnetic recording tape. 

When originally released on vinyl, the medley was broken up into two sections for a twelve inch record “A” and “B” side.  Here they have been edited together for your non- stop enjoyment.  Many of the songs in this production still pack a dance floor today – while others have faded almost into oblivion.  It's a good thing they are represented here and their place in dance music history accounted for. 

I know you will love listening to this and I hope it bring back some great memories! For those of you too young to have experienced this in the clubs... too bad - it was an naive, adventurous, awesome time for music and probably the most memorable and magical time in my life."

LOLLIPOP’S 80’s RETRO REVIVAL

00:0000:00
Lollipops80sRetro-RevivalMix2012LG.jpg


Not all the music that is currently being released is great.  A majority of it with its aggressive, staccato synth stabs, uninspired 128 BPM tempo and lack of “song” comes off like so much repetitive clap-track on a fast road to nowhere. 

What’s a DJ with high standards to do?  The answer is “dig in the crates!!!”

I've been exploring my prized music collection for a few recent gigs and have cherry-picked a rare selection of tunes to craft a modern-yet-retro homage to the incredible 80’s.  It is so much fun to see people react to rarely played classics and sing along with their favorites that have been sonically updated.  Add in some current songs that have an unmistakable 80’s alternative vibe to them and violà!  It has become a great set to spin live, and, a hell of a lot of fun to experience.

Enjoy LOLLIPOP'S 80's RETRO REVIVAL - 2012 MODERN MIX a blend of rowdy, randy & intoxicating party songs with a sophisticated twist that celebrate some of the rarer eighties club classics.  Awesome!

VOL 1: LOLLIPOP’S EDM MIX

00:0000:00
LollipopsEDMMix2012Vol1x.jpg

"This is it, look no further. This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next 15 years" - Brian Eno to David Bowie in 1977 after hearing "I Feel Love".

Indeed, Eno was quick to recognize the ingenuity and potential of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love", with its clinical, pulsating bass line, hypnotically vocal, and entirely synthesized rhythm that dispensed with the lush orchestral sound which, until then, had been an integral part of the disco sound.  History has proven that the slick, sequencer-driven recording produced by Giorgio Moroder & Pete Bellotte was a pioneering masterpiece of EDM that didn't just revolutionize disco, but change the blueprint for dance music forever.

That one song with its thick beats, soaring synths, hypnotic rhythms and dreamy vocals is still the blueprint for electronic dance music (some 35 years later!)  Explore the music that is blurring lines between artist, DJ and producer with Volume 1 of Lollipop's EDM 2012.  See how far we've come.

LOLLIPOP’S POST-DISCO FUNK EXPLOSION MIX

00:0000:00


School is in session... old skool that is.

The legendary DJ Lollipop invites you to reminisce in the distinct sound of the Post-Disco era.

If these joints are new to you, here are the original club jams that ushered in a new era - the DNA of hip-hop. If you know these artists, press play on Lollipop's Post-Disco Funk Explosion and fall in love with these favorite classic rare funk gems all over again.

Post-Disco is the significant period in popular music history that followed the "death" of commercial disco during late 1970s. The anti-disco sentiment that proliferated at the time was partially due to the over-saturation and the big-business mainstreaming of disco. As a result of the "Disco Sucks" movement and the July 12th 1979 “Disco Demolition Night”, disco records & artists were rejected from airplay and their promotions dropped literally overnight. The face of pop radio changed following this backlash which social critics have described as “a bigoted, macho, attack on non-white and non-heterosexual cultures”. Top 40 radio stations avoided playing music by black artists in an effort to prevent their stations from being labeled with the dreaded "disco" tag.

It was the dawn of a new decade and a sonically edited, more stripped-down sound was emerging as a reaction against what was seen as the over-indulgence of disco. Thanks in part to advances in technology, the over produced, melodically complicated "disco sound" was passé, and a simplified sound driven by synthesizers accompanied by rhythm guitar moved dance music toward ever splintering genres. This drift from the original disco sound has been labeled “Post-Disco”. In this music scene are the roots of dance music sub-genres that evolved into Italo-Disco, Boogie, Hi-NRG, Electro, New Wave and early Alternative.
Funk music is sometimes overlooked and usually lumped with disco music. However, Funk has its own style, culture and was here before disco's birth. It was born in the mid-'60s by the legendary James Brown. Funk de-emphasizes melody and harmony and brings a strong rhythmic groove of electric bass and drums to the foreground. It usually is heavily syncopated with polyrhythmic rhythms, horn and percussive sections featuring rhythm guitar. Brown had the most outspoken voice in soul music and a groove that would prove to be the future of Funk music.

Many of James Brown’s band members such as Bootsy Collins would go on to funk with many other bands like Parliament and Funkadelic which were both created and lead by George Clinton. Parliament had emphasis on horns while Funkadelic had emphasis on psychedelic guitars. Both had a deep, rhythm filled groove that had elements of several genres of music all rolled into one. Clinton had successfully fused together these types of music to create what he called “P-Funk”. The success of Parliament’s "Flashlight" would greatly influence not only funk music, but also New Wave and Hip-Hop.

Lollipop’s Post-Disco Funk Explosion celebrates this exact time in musical history when horn sections were replaced by synthesizers and the horns that remained were given simplified arrangements. The classic keyboards of funk, like the Hammond B3 organ and Fender Rhodes piano began to be replaced by new analog synthesizers like the MiniMoog and Yamaha DX7.
Join Lollipop and the legions of counterculture groove disciples in enjoying this sonic slice of historic funk cake. 
In the Post–Disco era between 1979 and 1981, bands that began during the P-Funk era incorporated technological developments to continue to craft funk hits. The magical formula of classic funk guitar and rhythmic horn hits combined with thumping synthesized bass lines became a club phenomenon. Groups such as Cameo, Zapp, Lakeside, The Gap Band, the Bar-Kays, all found their biggest hits during this period, but as styles evolved, funk had lost its commercial impact by the latter half of the 1980’s. This time period witnessed many jazz funk artists like Tom Browne, Lenny White, Don Blackman (Twennynine) and Harvey Mason dip their toes into the post-disco funk pool to create their most successful hits.

To quote George Clinton – “Free your mind and your ass will follow.”
