Good Morning Mix: The Stickmen mash-up every crowd-pleaser in this Radar mixTHE STICKMEN PRESS SHOT

It’s about time to hop on The Stickmen wagon, for those who are not so aware of the name. The mysterious duo just performed sorcery on their latest “Radar” mix. Hailing from the UK, this pair is one of a kind in that their live performance fuses together digital drum kits and DJing. They utilize said drum machines as sample pads, allowing for well-timed live mash-ups and remixes of popular party tracks.

Created exclusively for Dancing Astronaut‘s “Radar” mix series, The Stickmen painted an hour-long sonic masterpiece, primed for any setting in need of an energy boost — or for anyone who’s been handed the aux but has clue what to play. The mix is chock full of powerful goodies that take listeners everywhere from a remix of Tiesto‘s “Jackie Chan” to Drake‘s “God’s Plan,” later finding themselves diverging through a mash-up of Fisher‘s “Losing It” and the Oliver Heldens classic “Gecko.”

The duo recently performed a Pre-Game set for Australia’s Hyundai A-League Grand Final and will be touring through the UK to finish up 2018.

Good Morning Mix: Gorgon City dishes out house beats on new Cookout mix [Exclusive]Gorgon City 1

Good Morning Mix: Go underground with Claptone’s house-inflected Halloween mix

Good Morning Mix: Go underground with Claptone’s house-inflected Halloween mixCLAPTONE 2018 0928 234951 4311 ALIVECOVERAGE JCM

Claptone introduced a different connotation of “haunted house” in his Halloween mix, originally released in 2017. With the month of October at its peak, Claptone’s Halloween effort warrants revisitation, and it is accordingly with an enticing wave of his white gloves that Claptone invites listeners to delve into two hours of sumptuous, soulful house selects. A sleek underground spin on the traditionally trap and bass-laden Halloween sound, the mix is a collection of mid to downtempo tracks that fluidly unfurls with each second. Claptone subtly imbibes the spirit of the Halloween season in the production through deliberate song choice — Ordonez’s “The Spell,” for instance, occupies a mellifluous several minutes of the mix. A dark take on Talking Heads’ “Pyscho Killer” only further underscores Claptone’s attention to the inclusion of the spookiest sonic subject matter.

Eerie synths that stab on occasion, and thrillers of spoken vocal parts augment the mix’s hair-raising quality. In the titular fashion of Claptone’s sophomore album, the modern house revivalist’s sensation building Halloween mix should bring out the “fantast” in each listener this Halloween season.

Tchami is the latest to join Siriux XM’s The Cookout for over an hour’s worth of house music. Launched in 2016, the series has brought everyone from JAUZ to Luttrell for exclusive mixes, and their latest showcase is the Confession label head himself. Known for his groovy, futuristic, soulful take on underground house, Tchami tagged onto The Cookout’s decks with an impressive array in track choices. Starting out with jackin’ house from Wax Motif, the mix hits everything, traversing from tech house out of Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo’s Anti Up project into to the rabbit hole blog haus era Chromeo remix from Carte Blanche. All in all this is an impressively strong showing for a radio show guest mix, demonstrating Tchami’s knowledge of his craft and his contemporaries in weaving uplifting beats and surprises together in one motion.
