Gay Traitor: Traitorous Disco Volume 2

Well, this is a welcome collection of sounds, volume 2 of Gay Traitor's disco series only 2 weeks after Volume 1! Another great mix full of nice grooves, edits and chilled disco vibes. A very promising series!

If you can't see the above box, click here

No tracklist yet but it does include a great edit of 'Genius of Love' by Tom Tom Club and another of 'This One Thing' by Amerie. Nice vibes throughout. Also includes a cover of 'Love Will Come Again' by George Benson and the excellent 'Rush On Me' by Stephanie Mills.

I posted Volume 1 here, and follow soundcloud.com/gay-traitor for (hopefully) more.

Jackson And His Computerband live at La Route Du Rock Festival

Watch Jackson And His Computerband perform Arp#1 - this happened last Saturday night at Route De Rock Festival. Amazing, and pretty banging to say the least. Throw him on the must see live pile! If you haven't checked out the album 'Glow' you should do so tout de suite! 

I've also posted a Red Bull Radio show where Jackson talks about his tunes (in french, but don't let that put you off!) and plays a bunch of them, check that out here.

Also, if you are into the whole musical dreamboat lashing out the tunes while having the time of their life thing, you should check out this live performance of Jon Hopkins from Skif Festival a few years ago. It's a full show, a little darker and experimental, but just as mesmerising and deadly.

Gay Traitor: Traitorous Disco Volume 1

DISCO anyone? Dublin Aunts posted this so I gave it a listen and enjoyed its pure disco vibes. SO, yoink! Loads of great tunes, (You Are My Melody, Upside Down, Nights Over Egypt, Love Thang, And The Beat Goes On etc) although I'm not sure who any of the edits are by! Particularly interested in the edit of 'Stand On The Word' that hits about 23 mins. Hopefully this is volume 1 of many from Liverpool's John McCready (aka Gay Traitor).
If you can't see the above box, click here


Update: I've been reliably informed by Gay Traitor himself that the edit of 'Stand On The Word' is by Cheap Kidz!

The Revenge Love Story

The Revenge and Roar Groove have started a mix tape series together. Literally, they are going to be making one actual tape of each mix that they will give away. Which is pretty sweet although I'm not sure where I'd find a cassette player if I won. Anyway, lucky for us it also comes in modern mp3 form. This first mix in the series is in 2 parts, it's all funk and soul and love, just in time for Valentine's I guess. It's pretty dreamy with tunes from James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Patrice Rushen, The Pointer Sisters, Frankie Beverly and Evelyn King among others and you can download it for free here. *

 GO here to enter and get the DL link.


*You have to add your email address but that enters you in the competition and you can unsubscribe any time after if you want. And the mix is brilliant so get involved! The competition to win the tape finishes midnight GMT Wednesday 12th February

White Light Mix #94 - Falcon Punch

Need to check out more of the White Light Mixes.  I listened to this one because of the Cosmic Kids, Mylo and LCD in the tracklist, and I stayed for all the other tunes. It's REALLY good. Unexpected deep but very chilled vibes in there. The beginning reminds me of Tosca and then the tunes get all sorts of cool. It really make me want to go for a night drive. Which is the point I guess.

If you can't see the above box, click here.

The New Deal – Exciting New Direction
The Dead Rose Music Company – Bad Desire
Kool & The Gang – Summer Madness (High PKWY Edit)
Sopwith Camel – Orange Peel
Nina Simone – Black Is The Colour Of My True Love’s Hair (Jaffa Remix)
Nicolas Jaar – Don’t Break My Love
Mylo – Sunworshipper
Quintus Project – Night Flight (Alex Barck Cut Edit)
Ron Basejam – Hell No
Caribou – Sun (DJ Guilio Remix)
DJ Steef – Track 1
Cosmic Kids – Freight To My Soul
LCD Soundsystem – Someone Great
