Rising electronic music standouts, Jerry Folk and SAINT WKND, announced at the tail end of 2017 that they would be taking North America by storm in the new year with a co-headline tour coined the Foreign Affair Tour. Both hailing from Europe, the duo have carved their own paths in the R&B meets disco meets future bass spaces with their own signature flairs.

To give fans and people who may be new to the two names a taste of what their tour will be like, Jerry Folk & SAINT WKND have crafted a colorful hour-long mix full of both their own tunes as well as tracks from their live arsenal. Kicking things off with his Justin Bieber and Post Malone edits, Jerry Folk keeps the opening half urban-leaning with edits from Whethan and JME in addition to an ID to end it. For the second half, SAINT WKND kicks things off with his single “Make You Mine” before maintaining funk-ridden disco flavors from Kaytranada and Vanilla.

Bassiani invites CEM for podcast #35

This post was originally published on this site

Bassiani, the biggest techno club in Tbilisi, Georgia, began hosting their acclaimed podcast two years ago. Since then, the club’s curation has featured such underground techno artists such as Joel Mull, Fabrizio Lapiana, Jeff Derringer, and JP Enfant, to name a few.

Back for their 35th episode, Bassiani invites CEM — resident and co-founder of gay club night series Herrensauna — to the show for an unforgettable hour of experimental techno. Known for his meticulous selection, charismatic sets, and diverse range of influences, CEM explores both “experimental and dance floor oriented tracks to reveal darker and harder side of his taste in music.”

Weekend Rewind: Com Truise veers wildly between soul and space on his funky 2010 PlayGround Mix

This post was originally published on this site

Producer Seth Haley has made a name for himself with his galaxy melting sonic creations, producing scores of enigmatic retro-inspired synth melodies under his Com Truise alias. Haley’s sounds are uniquely impressive, even when measured against his synthwave generating peers, for the producer’s ability to build lushly nuanced, narrative-driven environments within his records.

Back in 2010, Haley had yet to release the records for which he’s become a cherished name in synth communities — 2011’s Galactic Melt and the 2012 follow up In Decay — and this mix shows a versatility of sound that will surely impress fans who’ve heard his singularly synthwave works that followed it. During the hour long mix, the producer cycles through a host of eclectic artists from Grandmaster Flash, Gatekeeper, New Order, and even Al Green.

It’s a range only a supreme selector could wrangle into coherence and Haley does just that, keeping the funk alive with innovative synth-heavy transitions that never feel forced. With a mix that could compel the most stoic hips into swaying, the producer was asserting himself as a genre-bending artist to watch nearly a decade ago.

Palms Trax makes rousing Essential Mix debut

This post was originally published on this site

Cheekily dubbed as the west country-born, Berlin-based underground star by BBC‘s Pete Tong, Palms Trax has finally made his debut in the Essential Mix DJ booth.

Real name Jay Donaldson, Palms Trax’ ubiquity in the dance world is becoming increasingly deserved as time carries on. He has bold sonic inclinations and an unabashed M.O. where he moves between genres and decades with ease — rare for someone as young as he. Despite being just 26-years-old, Donaldson’s encyclopedic musical expertise has situated him as an artist who’s talented beyond his years, if one were to see age as but a limit on such a thing.

Donaldson’s Essential Mix is steeped in a resplendent arrangement of classic dance tracks, from Angela’s 1984 “I Gotta Little Love,” to hidden gem house tracks from World Building records’ “Paraíso ’89” by Azura. His splicing of Azura’s track alone is a testament to his adroit crate digging, especially considering that Azura’s breezy Balearic business was extremely short-lived in the Italian house realm, she’s an act who’s slipped through the cracks for most.

Palms Trax has expressed he’ll be working on material for Dekmantel throughout the beginning of the new year and after listening to his deliverance of just the second Essential Mix of 2018, just following Carl Cox, one can only hope to see big things from Donaldson in the new year.

MUST LISTEN: The Black Madonna makes her stunning BBC Radio 1 residency debut

This post was originally published on this site

The “riot girrrl” of dance music, The Black Madonna, has made her 2018 BBC Radio 1 residency debut.

Marea Stamper kicked off her residency with zeal, digging into the crates and serving up an archetypically Black Madonna array of deeper cuts from the likes of Talamanca System, Detroit’s Parliament, and the groove-God Kiki Gyan.

It’s going to be a decalescent ride through the new year, as Stamper’s already gathered a healthy bevy of her prized disco, techno, and house expertise in the very first episode. She’ll be dropping off an array of new tracks throughout the show, all while enlightening the masses to some of the should-be-known cultural pioneers. Right off the bat, she threw on Juan Maclean’s new project Ambivalent and made the world debut of his galvanizing new cut “Faded Pictures,” featuring Shaun J. Wright.

Stamper spliced in acid house, literally, from fellow BBC resident Artwork, and a range of tunes that were aptly out of the very city that bred her DJ prowess. She closed out the show with the tear-jerker classic, Gloria Ann Taylor’s “Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing,” and brought back her  History of The World segment which was the title of her first residency series in London at XOYO, a three-night collection of expansive music selections. The series will see Stamper selecting a track at the end of each mix, talking about its origins, as well as its socio-economic and artistic significance. “It’s one of the most gorgeously arranged pieces of dance music or soul music that’s ever existed,” she said of Gloria Ann Taylor’s “Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing,” and we couldn’t agree more.

Stamper’s Radio 1 residency kicked off January 11 and will continue through June of this year.

Listen to The Black Madonna’s BBC Radio 1 residency debut here

Tracklist:

Talamanca System- The Past Is The Future (Beatless Stars In Space Mix)
Parliament- P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)
The Dynamics- Miracles
The Trammps- VIP
Kiki Gyan- Disco Dancer
Prince- Sexuality
Roni Griffith- Love Is A Drug
Ambivalent- Faded Pictures (feat. Shaun J. Wright)
Artwork- Let Go Of This Acid
Mike Dunn- DJ Beat That Shhh
Kirk the Flirt & Peter Pressure- My One Desire
Kitty Grant- Glad To Know You
Gloria Ann Taylor-Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing

Dancing Astronaut is back with Episode 103 of The Radar, mixed by Brooks.

Danny Avila cemented his status as a multi-genre guru via Style Sessions, an eight-week engagement that situated the Spanish sensation behind the decks to spin an alternate genre each week. Flitting from future big room to disco house to moombahton in a weekly commitment that would likewise canvass trap/bass, drum & bass, deep & tech, trance, and g-house, Avila let his technical talent do the talking during the Style Sessions, but the conversation centered around Avila’s astonishing versatility does not, and did not halt there — it rather continues at a fluid rate, Avila’s “DJsounds Show 2017” mix at Ministry of Sound furthering the discussion. Avila’s “DJSounds Show 2017” mix melds the auditory with the visual, training a camera on Avila’s deck to allow listeners to observe Avila live spin the set in what emerges as yet another awe inspiring product from the producer.

MUST LISTEN: Carl Cox kicks off the 25th year of BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix

This post was originally published on this site

The techno maven Carl Cox has served up the very first BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix of the year.

Considering the show turns 25 this year, it’s fitting that Cox — who Pete Tong referred to as “one of the most legendary DJs in dance history” — served up the very first mix of the year.

Cox’s first Essential Mix came in October of 1994 for the program’s 49th episode where he dropped off a selection of satiating tracks from the time, including Green Velvet’s original “Preacher Man” mix, Jackmaster‘s legendary “Bang The Box,” and Jeff Mills‘ “Cycle 30” and “Life Cycle.”

Cox delves into what he’s dubbed as “the future of house and techno” in the new mix. In just over two hours, he serves up an electric array of tracks from today’s heavy-hitters in the genres from Nicole Moudaber, to Eats Everything, Nathan Barato, and more.
