Mix Monday: Heathered Pearls - Hints of Musk

I hadn't heard of Heathered Pearls until this mix that Ghostly International posted today on Soundcloud. I'm a huge fan of that label and also of slow disco. Heathered Pearls is Jakub Alexander, who wears a few other hats. He's the co-founder of the Michigan's Moongadget Records, a dj by the name of Aarnio, and the music/culture contributor for the blog ISO50 (owned by Ghostly's Tycho).

Oh Irene

Hurricane Irene passed through town last night and brought quite a bit of water. So much so that the Raritan River spilling over onto the highways and roads. Luckily the aftermath wasn't too bad, but there was no way I was capable of getting to the studio today for the show. The school recommended we stay at home, and they never suggest that. I figured it was a good idea to listen. Although, it was a pretty cool sight to see. Pics to follow. I'll be around next week! Stay safe!

Mix Monday: Edwin van Cleef - August Mix 2011

Thanks goes to my fellow radio djs Sarah and Ryan for taking over the airwaves for me this week. I'm in Virginia Beach with the family for a few days, and couldn't make the show. I wasn't sure if vacation would give me time for the internet at all.  Luckily, there's free wi-fi in the lobby where they freeze you to death with air conditioning. I guess they don't want to encourage internet usage while you're on vacation. I can't argue with that logic.

Leave it to British dj/producer Edwin van Cleef to put out the perfect mix for me to end my day with. The weather here was beautiful and the cool ocean breeze topped it all off nicely. This mix has just enough disco energy to kick off the party of my dreams... literally. It's been a long day, so I'm off to Edwin van Cleef-land. See you soon.

Mix Monday: Mickey - August Mixtape

Dj/producer Mickey released his August mixtape a few days ago. This guy puts together some sweet nu-disco! I thought I posted something about Mickey a while back, but I apparently never got around to it. Fail. Mickey is also a resident dj of Libertine Supersport in Brussels. I wish I lived in Belgium, or at least nearby. He's played with fellow Belgian's such as Villa, Aeroplane, and Mustang. Check out the mix below and some tracks from his Farfalle EP.

Playlist: "Eclecticism" 8/14/2011

It's raining like crazy here in New Jersey. Talk about a mood killer. And, to top it off my computer decided to crash at the beginning of my show. It managed to come back from the dead half way through the show. Hopefully zombie computer cooperates for now. I'll have to make sure to get a new computer before the next show. Luckily, vacation is coming up next week so I've got some time. I won't be around next Sunday for the show, but I'll be back the week after. Hope you enjoyed the show this week!

Mix Monday: BeatauCue - Summer Best Of

Okay, it didn't take me long to mess up "Mix Monday." I know excuses don't matter, but I blame work. However, I have a mix to share. It's not technically a mix, but it's a great selection of tracks from French dj/producer duo BeatauCue. The playlist features three BeatauCue tracks and  four remixes of tracks from Yelle, Mika, Cicada, and Kylie Minogue. I swear, everything Kitsuné puts out is genius! BeatauCue released their third EP, Falcon Punch, on Kitsuné last month. Listen to the playlist and BeatauCue's EP below the jump.

Help Oliver!

Oliver needs you! Once their track "I Need You" get's 20,000 plays on Soundcloud, it will be available as a free download. I'm a fan of helping people reach their goals. Although, I'm an even bigger fan of helping spread the word about awesome music. You know how it goes, sharing is caring with your friends.

Mix Monday: The Magician - Magic Tape Thirteen

Happy August! I can't believe the last month of the summer is here. It's kind of sad, but I'm excited for what the future holds. In honor of a new month and to inspire me to do more with my life, I'm starting what I'm calling "Mix Monday." In theory I'll post an awesome mix that I find or have found every Monday. Woo!

So to kick it all off, I decided to start with The Magician's Magic Tape Thirteen, which popped up a couple weeks ago. This man is a genius. I'm not sure what life is like in Brussels, but I'd like to hang with this guy. Who is The Magician really? Well, it's not important. Just recognize the sweet groovy disco jams that pump through your speakers. Anyway, you can read all about it when you "Like" him on facebook.
