Song of the Day: 2 Puerto Ricans A Blackman and a Dominican – Do It Properly

A classic piece of New York house and one of the first records by Robert Clivilles and David Cole (better known by their later work as C&C Music Factory). I always thought that the drums on this song (1988) sounded suspiciously similar to ‘No Way Back’ by Adonis (1987) but that’s just my opinion.

House-mixes jukebox

House-Mixes is a handy website, but their jukebox is very buggy. I had it on the main page and set it up so it would NOT auto-play, but it would ignore my wishes and auto-play anyway.

So I stuck it on it’s own seperate page available from the menu at the top.
So you can click up there whenever you want to hear the latest mixes from me, and it will probably start to play immediately even though I told it not too.

Song of the Day: Rythim Is Rythim – Nude Photo / The Dance / Move It

With all their keyboards and drum machines, none of these guys had a dictionary!
Rythim, Rhythim, Rhythm – they spelled it differently every time.
Well, you’re supposed to listen to it, not spellcheck it (but I’m doing both.)

Song of the Day: Rhythim Is Rhythim – Unnamed

I forgot to post this one with the rest of the tracks from this single.
This is the 3rd song on the B-side.
The label only lists 2 songs, so call this ‘unnamed’ or ‘untitled’.
Just call it pure 80s Detroit.
