Reagan Bombs – Boat

“Boat”, the second single from go-go-meets-techno project Reagan Bombs, may sound innocuous if you don’t know the slang of go-go. Boat, or love boat, refers to the mixture of PCP and marijuana, and also connoted a sub-genre of go-go from the 80s. DJ Jesse Tittsworth and filmmaker Scott Sanders provide their own version of this style in this dark and psychedelic club tune, with a subversive music video created by Sanders providing visuals for the dark trip into hallucinations. Grab their full length self-titled album on cassette or digital through local label Swedish Columbia.

Reagan Bombs – Wind Me Up

Though he moved to LA a few years ago, superstar DJ Jesse Tittsworth can’t escape the pull of the DC music he grew up with. Partnering with filmmaker Scott Sanders, known for the 2009 blaxploitation comedy Black Dynamite, Reagan Bombs updates DC’s indigenous go-go sound with Techno and House influences to create “DC GoWave”. Their self-titled album was released on cassette and digital by the DC label Swedish Columbia run by Shelby Cinca, formerly of the DC bands Frodus and The Cassettes. The album’s first single is “Wind Me Up”, a well-known go-go catch phrase, and Sanders edited this music video with some of the same classic go-go VHS footage that contributed to the samples in the album.
