Zena Dejonay + my new turntable  

Isn't she beautiful? laying there seductively like that, fresh and young, looking temptingly at us, with her near perfect European retro styling. Taking us back to an era when tasteful aesthetic seemed to come so naturally.

I even put a new cartridge on her, A Sumiko Bluepoint Special Evo III, and now she runs into a Musical Fidelity X-LPS which feeds lovingly into a MOTU UltraLite recording interface. Many a deep disco funk cut has been offered at the alter of her ginko wood plinth.

Zena Dejonay looks alright too.

Every time I hear this song I wonder why I didn't grow up listening to it on the radio, it had all the elements I think to have made it a mainstream smash rather than simply a club funk classic.

I'm putting up the dub version too as I think as far as euro boogie dub versions of the time go its pretty good, try working the choppy, delayed out sections into the vocal.

    That's a beautiful turntable for shure. It cost a fortune too I guess.

    Thanks to the global recession a lot of formerly well to do stock market enthusiasts are selling their toys for cheap. Thats where most of this rig came from, and bits collected over time. It does look cool, but not as expensive as you might think. I don't have the time, know how or steady soldering hand to rewire my technics LeBaron style.
