DJ Paul V. explains the "Memorex" concept:
"My club DJ career started in 1982 in Boston, and I've been blessed
with being able to play to some of the best crowds ever - gay and straight -
at some of the best clubs you could imagine. Until around the year 2000,
I recorded many of my DJ sets on cassette, and I will be choosing
30 or 45 minute actual sets from each of those club nights, and
THAT'S what the 'Memorex' crowd will be dancing to. What will I be
doing during those sets? Jumping down in the crowd to dance, too!
But, I will also be spinning live DJ sets, featuring the new music I love now."
The clubs and music vibe in the mix will include:
Celebration (1982-1985, Boston) - Rock 'n roll, pop, new wave
Man Ray (1985-1987, Boston) - Punk, alternative, electronic, and new wave
Spit/DV8 (1987, Boston) - Punk, alternative, new wave, EBM
Axis (1988, Boston) - EBM, alternative, industrial
Dragstrip 66 (1993-2000, LA) - Alternative, grunge, 60's-2K's pop, electronic
Spit (1996-2000, LA) - Alternative, rock 'n roll, electronic, grunge
Adds Paul V. -
"You could say these will be retro DJ sets, but that's sort of incorrect.
Because what people will be hearing is the new music I played - as
it happened. I remember buying the original 12" singles for (now) classic
tracks like Michael Jackson 'Billie Jean,' The Smiths 'How Soon Is Now,'
Siouxsie 'Cities In Dust,' Grandmaster Flash 'White Lines,'
Dead Or Alive 'You Spin Me Round,' New Order 'Blue Monday,'
Cabaret Voltaire 'Sensoria,' Ministry 'Stigmata,' Madonna 'Vogue,'
Nirvana 'Smells Like Teen Spirit,' and dying to playthese (and so many more) for the first time!"
