Mixtape Melting Pot (Perseus, Nhan Solo, Amine Edge etc)

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

This is the first installment of a monthly post I’ll be doing about mixtapes specifically. I would like to include at least one mix from a local DJ each month. That said, if you’d like your mix featured please pop it in our drop box and we’ll go from there. As I’m sure most of you have noticed, my tastes lean primarily in the indie house/disco realm, but that’s just me. Genre doesn’t matter.

Lets kick off our first installment with an exclusive mix that Perseus laid down for I-D Magazine. It includes a few tracks from his French Express brethren as well as (what sounds like) a few exclusives. At approx 30 minutes in length, it’s short and extremely sweet.

Next up we have yet another exclusive mix from I-D Magazine and this one is from Nhan Solo. He’s a producer from Berlin and he has a strong affinity for Hip-Hop and funk as you’ll notice both in his mixes and productions. He’s one of my favorite producers at the moment and this mix includes a few original tracks from his latest release on Nurvous as well as some exclusives.

Amine Edge hails from France and from what I can tell you could pretty much take your pick from his Soundcloud page because this dude makes an art out “killing it.” Of course his productions are also top notch and I really hope to see him make a stop here when he comes stateside. Here’s a live recording of a set he recently played in Belgium. Naaaasty…..

Finally…I’m going to do some shameless self promotion and share my latest Mixtape. It’s chock full of some of my favorite tracks from the past few months. If you like what you hear, follow me on Soundcloud here.

Cheers:)

Hump Day Ho-Down (The Magician’s Magic Tape 25 dissected + More)

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

Want to start off by thanking EVERYONE that made it out this past Saturday!!! It was a truly a magical evening full of memories, unicorns, dancing and debauchery.

In other news, I’m really happy to be a part of a new weekly that just started at Norad Dance Bar. Every Thursday. Ladies drink free til midnight. Super cheap drink specials for gents. Featuring a rotating schedule of resident DJ’s option4, Werq, Teena Pizza, Mike Dee(z), SBLove, LaruLoud, Matt Ferry and myself bringing you the best in Deep House, Disco edits and Nu Disco. This week marks the 3rd installment and I can’t think of another weekly in the city with a format of this nature so you should probably come check it out… especially if you find yourself moved by the tunes I post.

Now that I got all of that off my chest….lets get to the beats.

Last week The Magician came off of his Magic Tape hiatus and blessed us with #25. It features yet another slew of amazing auditory treats for your listening pleasure. As always, no tracklist and some are still unreleased as of now, but have no fear as I’ve taken it upon myself to dissect most of the track list and post the Soundcloud links which you’ll find below. The Two Door Cinema Club Remix from Mercury toward the end is AMAZING. No word on a release for it yet though. The fantastic Waze & Odyssey track he throws in second is slated for release in the coming month. The Jonas Rathsman track at the end was just posted by French Express yesterday…that generally means it will be released very very very soon.

01.
02. Waze & Odyssey – Love That Burns (Hot Enough)
03.
04.
05. Sohight & Cheevy – Travel Anthem (Moullinex Remix)
06.
07. NTEIBINT – Time (Fabrizio Mammarella Remix)
08.
09. Two Door Cinema Club – Sleep Alone (Mercury Remix)
10.
11.

Lets continue our journey with the latest remix from Mr. Moon Boots.

Tagteam Terror takes Jonas Rathsman‘s deep house heater “Tobago” and gives it an infectious disco house kick. Good chit.

Keep em coming Sir Malinchak….

Colour Vision is a producer from Cali. This is his first official release and if it’s a sign of things to come…I think we can expect big things. This ranks among my top tracks from the past summer.

Tycho‘s electro-pop masterpiece gets the deep treatment from Belgium’s own Kolombo. The results are nothing short of beautiful.

Keeping it sexy here with the latest from UK producer Hot Since 82. I’ve had my ears on the chap for a minute and I really like what I’ve been hearing. Truth is…I’ve been hot since ’82 as well so he and I have a lot in common from that standpoint. (Insert awkward laugh here)

Lets round things out with the latest remix from our favorite local DJ/Producer option4. Slated for official release later this month, it’s hands down one of my favorites from him yet.

BONUS BEATS:

Finnebassen – Monday

The Gossip – Move in the Right Direction (Classixx Remix)
