In every episode of KET Talks, the Brussels queer podcast, Vjeran recommends some tracks to add to your playlist !
HOT SINCE 82 – Recovery
After over a decade of releasing smashing tracks that made every summer even warmer, last month, world-renowned British DJ and record producer Hot Since 82 released his first full-length studio album.
It’s called Recovery, and boy, we are steaming hot sweating!
Start to finish, Recovery packs true hits. Our favourite tracks are certainly Nightfall, Loverdose, Naboo – hello to all the Star Wars fans! – and Mesmerize.
On top of these essential house dance-floor filling tracks, one track simply stand outs because of its features, lyrics, beats and altogether vibe. Body Control features the iconic vocals of Boy George and production from the clubbing titan Jamie Jones.
The track is true warm house, igniting happiness and making us want to move.
Lyrically, Body Control is playing with the fact that while Hot Since 82 was breathing his first breaths, Boy George was ‘clubbing till the early hours’ and ‘rolling in spilled beer’. The Culture Club lead-singer then recites – Hacienda, Kraftwerk, Maggie Thatcher, Paparazzi, 1982, I was there, where were you?
This club hit is genuinely making us think of those better days when clubbing was allowed, and dancing shirtless was encouraged.
Soon, we will club again! Until then, Recovery is available on all streaming platforms.
Years & Years – It’s a sin
It’s no secret that we love ourselves some good British bands, boy bands and girl bands alike – Years & Years included!
Released ahead of the new British miniseries of the same name, their cover of It’s A Sin – originally by Pet Shop Boys – takes us back in time.
The miniseries explores the AIDS crisis in the ‘80s and how it impacted the queer community. The creator of the show, Russel T. Davies cast only gay actors in all the gay roles.
Olly Alexander – lead singer of Years & Years – stars in a main role, playing an 18-year-old student from the Isle of Wight who arrives in London ready to explore himself, his sexuality, and his newfound freedom.
We simply cannot wait to see it!
