For our love-soaked February edition of PATSY, we’re welcoming back international dreamboats Protopapa and Whitney Weiss. To build your anticipation, we’ve asked them to make you a sensual mixtape and talk to us about music for romantic occasions. Read on to get yourself in the mood.
Hi Protopapa! Hi Whitney! How are you both doing?
Protopapa: Hey CIAO! I’m feeling great, answering you from my second home, NYC.
Whitney Weiss: I’m good, I’m in Paris getting ready to DJ with Kiddy Smile later tonight!
Okay so I’m gonna ask you about some songs so we can build a sensual PATSY Valentine’s Day mixtape together. What’s the song you want played for the first dance at your wedding, if you’re into subverting traditional marriage?
P: Marcel Vogel – Body to Body (rework of Shades of Love – Keep in Touch) to set the right sensual mood. Even my 70 year old auntie could feel the sex vibes.
WW: Without taking into consideration the musical tastes of the person I’d be marrying, Sade’s The Sweetest Taboo or The Boss by Diana Ross.
Hey Protopapa, what is a song that you put on in Italy that consistently makes people on the dance floor hook up with each other?
Matia Bazar’s Ti Sento. They sing and dance and make out to it, it’s like an orgy of mouths and tongues.
Whitney, you’re really into the song Horny. Can you tell us a little bit about how it makes you feel and what version you prefer?
It makes me feel joyful and unashamed. On special occasions, I like to take people by surprise with the extended mix, which has like 2 and a half minutes of the popping bubbles noise before you figure out what’s going on.
Patsy thinks that nothing is sexier than Prince. What is your favorite Prince song?
P: C O N T R O V E R S Y !
WW: In terms of pure sexiness, Darling Nikki or International Lover.
What’s the last song you played on repeat when you had a crush on someone?
P: Elbee Bad – Just Don’t Stop <3
WW: Radio Dept’s Pulling Our Weight.
If you were both making a mixtape for a romantic interest, what is one song you would definitely include?
P: Kiss You All Over (Whitney Weiss ’til the night edit). I lost three teeth saying this.
WW: Ahahahaha grazie amore. There’s an edit of Abel’s I Gotta Woman that I’d need to include 😉
If a romantic interest were going to serenade you with a song, what song could they choose that would make you have a moment and cry?
P: Oliver Koletzki – Hypnotized. But it should be a ukulele version.
WW: I’m going to say Modigliani (Lost In Your Eyes) by Book of Love just because answering with another Prince song seems like A LOT of Prince.
What song makes you feel sexiest when you play it out while DJing?
P: Moscoman – Rerotica
WW: Prince – Erotic City
Protopapa, you’re closing one of your Eurocrash parties in Milan and want to play something tender that will make everyone hug and feel connected. What song do you choose?
P: Lucio Battisi – Ancora Tu.
Whitney, what is the most romantic song we can expect you to play at the next PATSY?
WW: L’Amour – Let’s Make Love Tonight.
