This month we have a fine selection of slowness for you, slow blues, slow jazz, slow country, slow soul, even some slow skiffle! And all of it with just the right groove to aid you in your erotic endeavours. Thanks to our special guest Loverboy Lopez for adding to the great pantheon of "working man" popcorn numbers with the Mike Shaw record...
Slow Grind Fever, Melbourne's smokiest mid-century slow dance party, presents a great leap forward into the lurid world of the 1980s with the first edition of SLOW GRIND '80s: EROTIC SLOW JAMS 1977 - 1993. Our usual red lights will turn PURPLE as we pump up the smoke and grind slow and low to the sensual sounds of DJs Richie1250, Nature Girl, Big Rig and Shio Otani, and when the time is right TIME FOR DREAMS will appear and throb us into erotic oblivion with a live set of spacey 80s style slow grinders. Start planning your '80s outfit and we'll see you in the smoke...
- As with all of our parties at Russian House, this one is BYO BOOZE. There is no bar at this event. If you want to drink, bring enough booze to get you through the night. We'll have some plastic cups and a couple buckets of ice up the back of the room, the rest is up to you.
- Doors open and the party starts at 9pm. End time depends on if we get static from the neighbours and authorities, but most likely it'll be somewhere between 1am and 3am.
- There will be a smoke machine going all night and it will get very smokey. The smoke is non-toxic but if you ain't into smoke machines this might not be the party for you...
- Entry is through the back lane. See map for directions. https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1LF5Mdvn2IFClAKIXTPQo91R7fxo
We know what you want, slow grinders. Flutes. Bongos. Crying. Calypso. Spaniards. Smokey Robinson. Songs about the devil. And we got you. It's all here in Slow Grind Fever Mix #45.
I like that each DJ is off on their own trip with this mix. My side is mostly latin, Side Jason is country / jazz / jamaican, Side Simon is on a Halloween in February tip (Halloween never ends for Simon), and Side Pierre is mostly soul with a little beatnik. This may not necessarily represent what you gonna get from each of us on Saturday, but you'll certainly get engulfed in smoke and shown a good time. You may also get drunk, high, laid, your nails complimented, a ride home with a friend, a copy of Slow Grind Fever Vol #6, told off by me for playing with your phone on the dance floor. You can get all kinds of things at Slow Grind Fever
This minxy mix has it all. Odes to Egyptian royalty, communist fearing sexual paranoia, threats to throw you into a pit of snakes and blind men wanting to dance but not knowing how. All performed by a cast of white pop singers, elderly bluesmen, youthful vocal groups and european rockabillies. That's how we do at Slow Grind Fever...
