The Kickoff: Jonas Rathsman - Warehouse Project 2014 Mix Series 001

French Express has been carving out a name for themselves as one of the leaders in deep house over the past few years. Hopefully by this point, you've come to appreciate my obsession with not only Isaac Tichauer, but all of the French Express knights.

Jonas Rathsman fires up a storm with his signature deep burning dance floor vibes in this mix for the first in this year's Warehouse Project series. It starts off kind of slow, but the pace quickens as the mix gets into some tech and jazzier house. The whole thing is rather moody and sassy--just how I like my Rathsman. Enjoy!

Playlist: "Eclecticism" 8/17/2014

Thanks for tuning in to the show tonight. I hope that you caught the whole thing! To make up for being absent the past couple of weeks and because the guys before me needed a sub, this week's show was three hours of sunny nu-disco and some deep house cuts. I think I'm going to post this one online somewhere for everyone to enjoy, so look for that later in the week. Come back for more groovy goodness next Sunday!

The Kickoff: Mighty Mouse - Discobelle Mix 045

My deepest apologies for being absent the past couple of weeks. Last night Wild Jokers took over and I'm sure they gave you some energy packed tunes for the night. I'll be making it up to you next week for an extra long show, so be sure to tune in at 7pm! 

This week I'm kicking off with a mix that Mighty Mouse put together for Discobelle. It starts off a little slow, but he wastes no time getting into some deep, tech, and moody house and nu disco. Basically, get ready to party. There's some really great tracks in here. Thank goodness there's a tracklist.

The Kickoff: PHUNKTASTIKE - SPA IN DISCO "Super Disco Heroes"

I had a hard time finding something that really felt right today. As much as I default to all the beachy nu-disco, I've been craving more of a darker tinge. There is still that urge to disco, but things need to get a little moody. One track that's been on repeat lately is this Blondie remix that Spirit Soul Music label head Phunktastike gave away a couple of weeks ago. I've been trying to throw it in the show, but it's so different from everything else I've been listening to lately.

This mix that Phunktastike did for Spa In Disco sort of captures that moody essence I've been craving. It works well for the late night folks. The pace sort of lurks around, but it's still something that allows for dancing. Sadly there isn't a playlist for this. Enjoy Phunktastike's Blondie remix after the jump instead.

The Kickoff: Zimmer - Méditerranée | July Tape

You guys should be quite familiar with Paris's Zimmer by now. I've probably posted every one of his mixes. They're always so good, I can't help myself. This month, the French producer gives us another lesson in horizontal disco. It starts off slower so we can get some La Roux in the mix, then things take off, only to come back to the slow jams at the end. There are also a lot of top notch edits and mixes of some old school tracks in the mix. It adds a nice touch. I hope you enjoy just as much as I did!

Playlist: "Eclecticism" 7/27/2014

Hopefully you did some dancing for me tonight. The studio got so hot, I had to do the show seated for the first time in a couple of years. Lame. Come back next week for more great summer tunes!

The Kickoff: Waifs & Strays - "Deep House Amsterdam Straf_Werk Festival Podcast #010"

Waifs & Strays are two gents from the UK who surely know how to get down. They come from different musical backgrounds, but came together for their love of house. This mix comes ahead of the Straf_Werk festival in the Netherlands which happens in August. I can only assume Waifs & Strays is playing and it will be a groovin' good time. The boys packed a bunch of soulful, shimmering house tracks into this one, so I hope you're ready to move your feet.
