Homoelectric Happy Finish

Homoelectric Happy Finish

Finishing up our bank holiday/birthday mega weekend this Sunday is Mancunian disco institution Homoelectric. They've got special guest Justin Robertson playing alongside residents Luke Unabomber, Jamie Bull and Lucy Locket and will be digging through their record bags for their unique blend of disco, house, techno, garage, rock 'n' roll trash and outsider pop.
Jamie Bull sent us this HOT MIX ahead of Sunday's debauchery so we decided to ask him a few questions about it!
You've started your mix with Giorgio Moroder. What does Moroder mean to you?
Real simple: Giorgio Moroder's I Feel Love is ground zero for dance music as we know it.
You've plumped for a Fern Kinney track too! Who is your ultimate Diva Of Disco?
I would have said Diana Ross, however I've been reading a few books and autobiographies on Motown recently and she sounds like a right cow, so I think I have to hand the crown over to Donna Summer.

Out of all the tracks on the mix which would you say is a record bag staple?
Todd Terje. His stuff always saves the day.
Why do you favour eclecticism? You've got everything from Todd Terje to Le Tigre (and even taking in Frank Ocean on the way) on here!
Because I have the attention span of a radio edit! Plus I don't like to get bogged down with genres, there's too many. My main criteria with track selection is "does it make me want to dance?" I enjoy taking different sounds and stringing them together in a way which is cohesive and keeps people dancing. Sometimes the blends are as engaging as the tracks themselves. If I played two hours of 128bpm house I think it would get a little one dimensional.
And finally, what is your favourite track by your special bank holiday guest Justin Robertson?
I'll go for a classic and say his remix of Bjork Big Time Sensuality. 

Join Jamie at Homoelectric this Bank Holiday Sunday 5th May at Dalston Superstore from 9pm - 4:30am.
