Welcome to my music blog, sakura galactic mixes! In this blog I will be sharing my mashups, edits and mixes from the past 20 plus years with little stories behind them.
This week's pick is the second mashup that I did for Mardi Gras Laneway in 2022.
Spiller x Dua Lipa - Groovejet x Physical (Laneway 2022 Mashup)
Spiller's disco house classic, Groovejet (If It Ain't Love) came out in 2000. It was my second year of living in Sydney and I was having the time of my life, so this song reminds me of the happy memories from that period. I love the featured vocalist, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and used to play a few of her tracks in my sets. My favorite was Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer) - a heavenly collab with Freemasons. Her Kitchen Disco live streaming on youtube during the covid lockdown was fantastic.
Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia album also dropped during the lockdown and came as a breath of fresh air. The songs were catchy, fun and uplifting - they were just what my hubby and I needed to distract from the craziness. The remix album was also fantastic and the Joe Goddard remix of Future Nostalgia and the Horse Meat Disco remix of Love Again were both gold. Kylie's Disco album came later that year and had the same effect. Music really saved us during the worst times of the pandemic.
Defected Records acquired Groovejet and re-released it with a whole bunch of new remixes from late 2021 to early 2022. Among them the Harvey Sutherland remix was my favorite because of the new funk synths and the live sounding disco vibe. I decided to do a mashup of this remix and Dua Lipa's Physical for my Laneway set, but the digital release of the remix wasn't until two days before the gig (gasp!) so I ordered the vinyl from the UK and digitized it to use in the mashup. It was well worth the cost and the hassle because I played it in almost every disco set in 2022. Sorry Sophie for not using her vocals!
