Enter Tom Disco. Drop Golden’s Boogie. Leave.
Italo disco for the win. This sounds like the track that would play when you are preparing to beat the final level boss at the arcade.
S.Charles brings the fire on his track “Crime”, just try to listen this without wanting to get up to mischief.
Japanese pop meets French artisan beats. France’s Shogonodo has been making Japanese infused beats better than any avante garde fusion restaurant in Paris. This cut is so smooth, warm and calming that you feel like you are on a beach.
Another week and another crate digger for your listening pleasure. It’s the kind of track that I imagine makes Todd Terje cry from happiness.
Nightrider in the sky.
A new trend in music today is the constant ability of legendary selectors like Hunee, Mr Scruff and Antal to dig up incredible and unknown old school tracks that turn the dancefloor mental. In honor of that trend I’ll be posting “Crate Digger” tracks starting with this groovy cut circa 1974, from Trinidadians Embyro.
Another standout performance for me at Reeperbahn was the Wednesday night set from Berlin-based Kalipo. He unleashed his special brand of melodic tech-house that was a welcome treat after a full day of pop, punk and post-rock bands at the showcase festival in Hamburg last week. He weaved a 90 minute set into a masterpiece with this relentless original mix at the heart of it.
