As classic as "classics" get. 1979 this came out on Elite Records. I guess Andy Sojka had something to do with the group Powerline as well since "Watching You" came out on a split 12" with 3rd Army also on Elite Records. I always liked this song and it continues to grow on me over time. Great synth work on this one!
Check out Powerline here:

Real Scenes: Detroit from Resident Advisor on Vimeo.
I've been sitting in front of my laptop all day. Short doc #2 from Resident Advisor about the scene in Detroit. I can't shake this cold and although it shouldn't turn into a the flu, I think some potato leek soup will be the perfect way to sit back and watch this again... sit back and relax...
Nice doc on the 303 with some tidbits about Roland early on. Some things are left out and perhaps not exactly correct, but it's worth a watch. I'm sure it's not easy making a doc like this about 1 instrument. Check it out...

Not much of a video per say, but maybe that way you actually listen to the music more! This is another group from San Antonio, TX that my dad turned me onto. I can see a drive in burger joint with all the cars coming and going in my mind. My dad was just a little kid when this came out in the year of 1963. This song is put together so well with short pauses, orchestra backing and a great vocal. I miss old doo wop and soul on the radio. Hopefully all these classics can stay just as they are... perfectly sealed in time.

An old personal favorite. Apparently Dj Funk did not produce this (which is what I always thought), but was actually produce by Houzmon. Great 303 line boppin and poppin around here. Minimal acid house at it's best. One of the Dance Mania records that I'll always have...
