The king of boompty, Derrick Carter has just uploaded his recent set from the RBMA x Lovebox takeover at the Forum which featured none other than Chic, Seth Troxler, DJ Pierre to name but a few…

If like me you were a little slow on the uptake of tickets, then you can download Mr. Carter’s set below. An hour and a half of disco goodness, jam packed with edits and oozing with funk!

The Return of FRIDAY MIX MANIA w/ Rampa, Moustache Mamas, Casino Times, Cosmonauts & Shir Khan!

So here we go folks a veritable all you can eat gluttons paradise of mixes to take you through the weekend. Thats right… FRIDAY MIX MANIA is back!!!

First up for this FMM is our man of the moment RAMPA who is just straight killing it all over the place with original productions and remixes. This is a brand new mixtape for his Keinemusik crew that is all his own tracks… strap in for an hour’s worth of his soulful techno stance on house.

Next up we have head honcho of one of my favourite labels this year… EXPLOITED RECORDS main man Shir Khan. Consistently pumping and innovative bootlegs and sample led originals have been pouring out of this Berlin based label and as if that outpour wasn’t enough Shir Khan has gone and made a 5 and a half hour mix!!!

Then we have Tamara, one half of the lovely Moustache Mamas, who’s upped roots from Berlin to NY and this is a cheeky mix recorded live at a recent outing at Halcyon Records. I love these girls’ music taste and they do such cool mixes that dip and dive between disco and techno without a care in the world! (Wicked Biggie Booty kicking it all off!)

This weekend welcomes the 1st Birthday for South London night TIEF… a huge Happy Birthday from us! It’s been held at the cosy Corsica Studios who have been putting on new levels of party line ups down there and regularly making East London look bad! Catch Casino Times playing Room 3 alongside another monster line up tonight! Check HERE for full details and line up and enjoy their new promo mix for the night below.
Somewhere in this mix there may or may not be a new forthcoming Needwant release… You didnt hear that from here of course…

And finally bringing in the rear like they always love to do are the Cosmonauts who have put the finishing touches on their September disco playbook. We’ll be playing with these two lizards on October 13th in a special Warehouse Party at Sugar House Studios for Human Drizzle.

Aaaaaand as an extra bonus bonus Paulie from the Cosmonauts has done an extra mix on the side full of deep house numbers. Grab it below and enjoy your weekends folks! Rave safe!

Friday Mix Mania: Juicy Fruits

Apologies for the brief hiatus from the blogosphere, fortunately head honcho Pat has been keeping tabs on what is of the gwan. Even beating me to some gems I was hoping of sharing. Not to worry, got some juicy mixes lined up for y’all…

First up is this superb selection from T-Bone on behalf of the great Extended Play mix series. No tracklisting I’m afraid but this one will get you bumping and grooving until the very end, by which point, you’re likely to hit rewind and play it again.

Next up is this great mix from Fill Yer Boots resident and all round nice guy Leisureware. His ethos behind the mix was to craft a soundtrack to suit the chillier days and colder nights and in my opinion he really hit the nail on the head.

Finally, I have been hammering this one pretty much on a daily basis. Homework’s mix for the fantastic OFF Podcast series. These chaps have cleverly crafted an identity of producers with a clear penchant for slow jams and deep dancefloor groovers. Whatever they are drinking, I’d quite like a sip…
This mix even features one of my favourite house records, the stunning Marshall Jefferson VS. Noosa Head’s – Mushroom.
