Charlotte De Witte spins galvanizing guest mix on B. Traits Future 12 Show

This post was originally published on this site

Perhaps one of underground electronic music’s biggest purveyors, Brianna Price — aka B. Traits — has developed as a BBC Radio 1 broadcaster all the way to her current position as an integral part of the radio station’s storied Friday night lineup. Every Friday night between 1 and 4AM, Price showcases a plethora of up and coming talent on her Future 12 radio show.

Last Friday, Price featured rising underground techno star Charlotte De Witte for a 30 minute guest mix. On the brink of worldwide acclaim, De Witte sent listeners into a stimulating frenzy with a galvanizing selection of tracks from such producers as 1800HaightStreet, Patrick Siech, Setaoc Mass, David Dawl, Linus Quick, Patrick Skoog, Mikael Jonasson and Flug.

Charlotte De Witte’s Future 12 guest mix serves as further proof that she is slated to take the world by storm in 2018. Last year, Dancing Astronaut named De Witte as one of 15 artists that rocked the underground in 2017.

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.

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)

Mike Dunn- DJ Beat That Shhh

Watch Diplo recreate his own drops using only his voice

This post was originally published on this site

Forgoing both the synths and DAWs, Diplo recently sat down with BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw to complete a true test of memory: could the electronic mega producer not only remember, but replicate the drops of several of his hit songs using only his voice?

“We can only play this game with people who’ve had loads of hits, hence why we’re playing it with you,” Grimshaw informs Diplo, noting that the game is traditionally played with singer-songwriters in a measure of how well the vocalists can recall the lyrics to their own songs, citing Pink’s inability to summon the lyrics to her 2001 single, “Lady Marmalade,” in a previous round. Grimshaw effectively alters the game’s rules of engagement by instructing Diplo to recreate the drops from the “Swerve” collaborator’s original productions and remixes alike, plunging deep in Diplo’s extensive catalogue to up the ante.

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.

Deadmau5‘s struck an underground gold mine, and luckily, he’s happy to share the wealth.

Fans of deadmau5’s radio show can relish in a complete collection of the music the artist slung out over the course of the last year thanks to the amusingly-named Spotify playlist “for a lack of a better playlist.”

Mau5trap’s looking towards an eventful new year. With fresh music from Joel Zimmerman, a new show, new signees, and more, it’s a good time to be a fan of the label, indeed.
