Last week, Prince gave away his new album "20TEN" for free, though not as a download on his website - as one would most likely do nowadays in such a case. The only way to get Prince's album was buying certain newspapers that gave the album as a supplement, since Prince is convinced "The internet's completely over". I'm not entirely sure about his promotional qualities, but fact is the man does know a thing or two about making good music - our latest Villa's Vinyl Vault is a clear proof of that.
Prince - The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker (ALT)
ALBUM: Sign "O" The Times
RELEASE DATE: 1987
FREDO'S ADVICE: "There was a time I didn't play anything else but Prince & Stevie Wonder albums for weeks on end. I cherish those vinyls, 'Sign"O" The Times" being one of them. 'Hot Thing' from that same album is still a regular in our sets."
Your next chance to catch one of those sets is at Avenue L's Villa Night on Wednesday. Avenue L is Ghent's newest coolest place to spend your nights, their parties are not to be missed! Next week they're hosting not one but TWO editions, first one being aforementioned Villa Night on the 20th and a second one, 'Studio Gand' on the 21st, with Studio Brussel's best DJ's on decks.
FUN ACT OF THE DAY: I've got 5 pairs of tickets to give away to either of these nights. All you need to do is mail me at email@example.com and tell me which night you want to go to, first ones will get lucky!
And Dorothy Parker: Fredo would love to know which bar you're working at, so if you're reading this: do get in touch! ;-)
