The OXD Mirror: New Music For 8.9.13



The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based collective created by three music lovers, Ru Bhatt, Josh Appelbaum, and Tadeu Magalhães, who want to share their love for disco, house and dance music with the world.  

Mighty Mouse - 'Feel Alright' 

London's Mighty Mouse, a producer and DJ that is no stranger to OXD readers, has had quite the busy year. His partnership with Van She's Matt Van Schie has not only produced some stellar tracks under the moniker Du Tonc but has also resulted in co-founding their own label, Nightfilm Records. To thank his fans and celebrate the label's launch the "Intergalactic Disco Mouse" has released this track as a free download that perfectly encapsulates everything we love about him. With its groovy, disco-pop sound and admittedly cheesy sample, it achieves that 'feel good' moment that we all strive for on the dancefloor.

Mighty Mouse has been a fan of our cause as a straight ally since the inception of Occupy The Disco. Tonight we're excited to feature him as the headliner of our inaugural party with one of NYC's most iconic spaces: Le Bain at The Standard, High Line. To have a traditionally "straight" venue not only cater to a gay audience on a prime weekend night but completely own up to it by quoting our manifesto on their blog shows we are on our path to create an integrated, friendly environment for music fans, whether gay, straight or anything in between. Check out more information on our site, and we encourage anyone in NYC to join us tonight.


Cyclist ft. Maiko Watson - 'Shine'

Cyclist, also known as Toronto's Mark Penner, is a "big fan of old school disco," a fact that is readily apparent through his various remixes and original efforts and his monthly Toronto party, "Beam Me Up." 'Shine,' co-written by vocalist and friend Maiko Watson, is a disco-funk jam that sounds like it could have come from the First Choice era of music with its soulful vocals and hip grooves. In addition to the phenomenal original I also highly recommend the jack-swinging remix by Chicago's Rogue Vogue for a different take that harkens back to the warehouse days.

Yasmin - 'Thinking About You (Futurewife Remix)'

Britain's beautiful siren Yasmin was most recently featured on The OXD Mirror with her contribution to Drums of Death's 'True.' She recently released a daring, sultry cover of Whitney Houston's 'Thinking of You' to much acclaim. While Billon's pulsing, uptempo remix of the cover is certainly gaining notoriety via Radio 1's Annie Mac, Seattle's Futurewife has created a remix that takes the cake. The funky dance-inducing remix is reminiscent of Janet Jackson in her heyday, without becoming a rehash of the Kashif produced 80's synth original.

Jennifer Lopez on Her New ABC Show About a Gay Family: VIDEO


Jennifer Lopez spoke with Extra about her new ABC show The Fosters, which is about  a gay couple raising a multi-ethnic family. J Lo serves as executive producer.

“Gay marriage is becoming legal now in so many places, and there's a controversy surrounding it, but at the end of the day, it does exist. And to keep pretending that it doesn't is really, I feel, is irresponsible because there are children who do grow up in these families and you don't want them feeling weird, or like they're not normal or have inferiority complexes, or anything like that. You want them to know that as long as they are surrounded by love -- that’s the most important thing.”


The Fosters premieres in June. Watch a preview HERE.

'One Million Moms' Boycotts J Lo-Produced Gay-Themed TV Show That Might Someday Exist


American Family Association subgroup One Million Moms is going nuts over a television show that doesn't exist yet:

EW announced in August that the cable network had greenlit The Fosters, an hourlong drama executive produced by Jennifer Lopez and created by Bradley Bredeweg and Queer as Folk‘s Peter Paige. The show will focus on a multi-ethnic family headed by a lesbian couple.

One Million Moms has called the program “anti-family,” posting a call to arms on its website: A premiere date has not been set, but One Million Moms wanted to sound the alarm about this new series. It will be airing on the network soon unless we do something about it. They are in the beginning stages.

ColeShrieks OMM (director Monica Cole, pictured):

Obviously, ABC has lost their minds. They haven't let up so neither will we. ABC's Family Channel has several anti-family programs, and they are planning on adding to that growing list. ABC Family has approved a series pilot from Jennifer Lopez's production company, Nuyorican, about a lesbian couple and their diverse family. Many families have already discovered that ABC Family Channel is anything but family-friendly. But because of family being part of the network's name, we thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch the channel. A premiere date has not been set, but One Million Moms wanted to sound the alarm about this new series. It will be airing on the network soon unless we do something about it. They are in the beginning stages.

ABC Family reported the comedy-drama pilot, working with the title "The Fosters," is about two women raising a "21st century," multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together. One Million Moms is not sure how the explanation will be given on how the biological children were conceived. None of this material is acceptable content for a family show.

Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin. As Christians, the Bible also says that we must speak up against sin. If we remain silent then we are guilty of sin also.

Lopez will be an executive producer for the hour-long project. Casting has not been announced. It's still in the pilot stage and hasn't been picked up for a series yet. Let's stop this dead in it its tracks.
