There are some months where I really have to dig deep to find good new music for my mix. And then there are months like this one: Loads of new tracks by my favorite producers so I even have more than I could possibly fit in one hour.
Of course, nearly every release or remix by Modek is great, and so I chose “Donny” from his “The Family EP” as well as the remix he did for Tai´s “Steroid”. Also with two tracks in this months mix are Blatta & Inesha. I have to admit I was not so much into their music earlier, but since they switched to a more technoid style they became part of my favorite producers. One of their tracks in this mix is a feature for Mustard Pimp, whom I have not played for quite some time. So: welcome back.
Duke Dumont´s “The Giver” is part of the “For Club Play Only Pt. 2″ EP. No. 1 already was excellent and so I – like a lot of people – can´t wait for No. 3.
A track, I have been waiting for for some months now, is “Epilogue” by GSUS!. Disco Demons introduced this track on his blog in March, and now it finally will be released on October 16th.
There have been some heave discussions lately about where dance music is going, and when I listend to Surfer Rosa Records compilation “Kick Out The Jams 1.0″ recently I got aware of how electro house sounded only 2 or 3 years ago. I really do not like the latest electro house tracks flooding the Beatport charts, and when I listened to Tim Healey and Felguk´s track “Score”, which is part of that compilation and was originally released nearly 3 years ago, I remembered what I liked about this music back then. Unagitated house music with electro sounds, not 3 cheap hooklines and 4 vocal tracks at once.
Aka Tell´s Hangover Sessions is a monthly DJ-podcast. For one hour Aka spins the tracks that he loved most, that influenced him or about that he really had to say some words during the last few weeks. Every episode is accompanied by an article on discodemons.net in which he is disclosing thoughts, stories and anecdotes about that mix, the last month and DJing in general.
