Inspired by a conversation with DJ Major Tom of Seattle, we’re switching up our venerable Pick Five format on this week’s podcast. In this “Prompt Five” episode, we’ll each be prompting the other to react to hypothetically hearing a range of tracks in a nightclub in 2022. Which club classics prompt eyerolls from the jaded Senior Staff and which might still send us dashing to the dancefloor? How do personal and regional histories with specific bands and sub-genres shape our reflections on the sounds of years gone by? All that plus some last minute Cold Waves talk and discussion of the upcoming Minuit Machine tour. As always, you can rate and subscribe on iTunes, Google Play Music, or download directly or listen through the widget down below.

Interesting list! There are a few on here that we never really got as “huge club tracks” in the Detroit dark scene (i.e. Henric de la Cour – “Dracula”, Ashbury Heights – “Spiders”), but we had some similar ones that got played over the years (including one that was mentioned off the cuff – Dead Can Dance – “The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove”). I have no idea what’s getting played these days because I haven’t bothered with club nights since before the pandemic, but I’d imagine that some of them still crop up, and if I were at one of those nights, I probably would stay out there for most of them just out of nostalgia.
