Horse Meat Disco Mix CD
Last week the Horse Meat Disco DJ collective released their first official mix cd on Strut Records. The cd is a 70 minute set of the best disco, italo, and electro rarities that you would hear if you attended one of their famous Sunday nights at The Eagle in London. The cd is 2-disc set consisting of the mix as well as the individual tracks, (which is a really cool way to offer a dj mix on cd) and as a promo for the cd, the DJs also put out a 30 minute mix available to download for free!
If you aren't familiar with Horse Meat Disco, it was started in 2003 by James Hilliard and Jim Stanton and set out to create a party that harkened back to the disco scene of 1970's New York and "to provide a queer space for everyone after all the best parties have always been the ones where the crowd comes from all walks of life." Since 2003, they've added 2 residents (Severino & Filthy Luka) and the party has grown into one of the biggest venues for the best DJs around with guests like James Murphy, Derrick Carter, Lady Miss Kier, Andy Butler, and tons of others. Besides offering the weekly party in London, they've also taken it on the road so cities all over the world can experience a Horse Meat Disco party!
Horse Meat Disco are currently touring for their cd, but they are pretty much sticking to Europe (besides dates in New York and Toronto) but in the meantime you can download their promo mix, turn off the lights, and dance the night away in your bedroom!
(As a side note Strut also put out the great Disco Not Disco compilation, Disco Italia, and a bunch of other cool stuff...so be prepared to spend money if you hop over to their website!)

EDIT: Thanks to the wonderful world of twitter and all the tweeting and re-tweeting (and our friends at Think Pink Radio), I've learned that HMD also made a mix for FACT Magazine last week! It's equally as awesome (if not more awesome since it features one of the best songs EVER--Ride the White Horse by Laid Back) so click the link to grab that one too!
